The Adventures of Tintin is a Adventure game available on the PS3. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.
The Adventures of Tintin is a Adventure game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.
The Adventures of Tintin can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn hits the big screen at Christmas 2011. As a huge fan of the books I've been reading since childhood, would a game tie-in give me the chance to finally enter a familiar world?
The film of the classic Tintin story, The Secret of the Unicorn, is being created by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. The motion-capture technology perfected by Jackson's Weta Workshop during production of films such as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong looks to have been used to incredible effect in the newly released teaser trailer.
