Latest game from the global phenomenon Mr Bean launches to critical acclaim and immediately gets featured on the Apple store.

 

London, UK - 17th July, 2019 - Pointvoucher Studio is thrilled to announce the latest in its series of games based on the world-famous Mr Bean. Mr Bean Solitaire Adventures is a fun, stress-relieving new take on the solitaire game format. This lovely casual game combines the best of Mr Bean with a familiar and comfortable format while taking the player on a road trip to amazing cities like New York, Honolulu, San Francisco and many more.

 

Following the previous launch of ‘Play London with Mr Bean’, the new game is a quirky take on a popular and established format and is already a hit, gaining a much respected ‘New Games We Love’ feature on the Apple AppStore.

The game starts in London where Mr Bean is experimenting with taking selfies on the top of Tower Bridge but he predictably falls (trying to get the perfect angle) from the bridge, collides with a ship and wakes up in New York at the beginning of a new adventure. The player then goes on a road trip through the United States of America with him while playing a fun and relaxing game.

 

Nicolai Elmqvist, CEO of Pointvoucher Studio, commented:

“This is a super-entertaining, exciting and sticky game that brings all the fun and quirkiness of Mr Bean to a familiar casual games format that players find fun and stress relieving. Moreover, familiar US cities can be seen and players get to experience a road trip through the United States!”

 

Next year will mark 30 years since the original version of Mr Bean first hit screens. The live action series starring Rowan Atkinson ran for only 14 episodes, but it delivered some of the most iconic moments in TV history. Since its launch, Mr Bean has been in continual distribution and is broadcast in nearly 200 territories.

Mr Bean made the successful transition to animation, with Rowan Atkinson still involved in the creative direction of the show. Starring Mr Bean and Teddy as they embark on new adventures, Mr Bean The Animated Series has just finished production for a third run which airs on CITV in the UK and across international markets on Turner’s Boomerang (as well as other Turner Kids channels in select markets).

Mr Bean continues to entertain new audiences all around the world with unprecedented success across global digital platforms, hitting a combined digital reach of more than 100 million fans. Mr Bean has over 14 million subscribers on YouTube, is one of Facebook’s top ten biggest pages globally, surpassing 85 million fans on the platform.
