Forrest Gump gets translated to appropriate video game genre

S. Prell, @SamPrell

If there's one thing video games can teach us, it's that it's never too late to bring an intellectual property back from the grave. Judge, jury, may we direct your attention to Exhibit A: Run Forrest Run, a free iOS game starring Forrest Gump. Yes, that Forrest Gump.

The game is a cartoonishly-styled endless runner, because of course it is. According to the app's description, players will recreate the scene from the 1994 film where Gump runs across the country. Players will dodge traffic, use power-ups and collect coins; you know, like in the movie.

The game is currently only available in New Zealand, but we won't be surprised if it manages to jog its way home to Alabama and the rest of the United States. But the iOS store is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get.
