Burger King Promoting Xbox With Casual Games

by Rainier on Oct. 2, 2006 @ 1:07 p.m. PDT

Xbox and Burger King are conducting a promotion that gives casual gamers control of the humorous, pop-culture personalities of such Burger King icons as The King, Brooke Burke and Subservient Chicken in 3 Arcade-style games playable only on Xbox and X360. With the purchase of any value meal, these $3.99 games will be available at US Burger King restaurants nationwide from Nov.19 – Dec.24th.

“Pocketbike Racer” (Racing) –– Welcome to the wild world of Pocketbike racing where players race the King and his miniature motorbike crew through five fun, yet challenging speedways. Each track varies in level of difficulty and players navigate long straights, tight bends and sharp turns at high speeds while attempting to earn enhancements and tools that they can use to gain an advantage over opponents. Featuring Have it your Way customization options, players select a bike and a driver and then hit the track of their choice -- a Burger King restaurant parking lot, a construction site, a backyard, the King’s garden or the fabled Fantasy Ranch set. In addition to individual play, four players can race against each other in classic split-screen set-up or eight players can battle it out online using XBOX Live.

“Big Bumpin’” (Action) –– Big Bumpin’ looks like a traditional carnival bumper car ride and features familiar Burger King icons, including the Subservient Chicken and Brooke Burke. But, there’s a catch – Big Bumpin’ arenas come with some big hazards, like surprise saws, bottomless pits and “power up” items that let gamers dole out thundering bumps. With several different types of game play, gamers have a chance to hone their bumper car skills in a variety of challenging scenarios. The game features theme parks, including the “Ice Box,” “Broiler,” “King’s Court,” “The Deep” and “Monsoon of Doom,” and three modes of play for each – intense four-player and XBOX Live-supported. Easy to learn. Fun to play. Difficult to avoid a major crash.

“Sneak King” (Adventure) –– Only the King can turn an everyday act into an art form and now players can step into the King’s royal shoes and use cunning stealth to sneak up behind unsuspecting people and bestow them with a delicious meal. The goal of Sneak King is to surprise hungry citizens with Burger King sandwiches and other menu items throughout the day before they pass out from hunger. Whether in a logging yard, construction site, suburban neighborhood or downtown urban scene -- each rich with detail and hidden pathways -- players can hide out and earn points based on how elaborate the delivery is executed.

Nov. 19 through Dec. 24, 2006 at Burger King restaurants for $3.99 with the purchase of a BK Value Meal.
