Activision Debuts Mobile Game as Final Series Airs
Sep 21, 2015
As the final ever series of "Downton Abbey" kicks off in the U.K., millions of fans will no doubt be mourning the show's imminent demise. However, thanks to Activision (perhaps better known for high-octane games such as Call of Duty) they can now play a game featuring the show's cast of characters on their smartphones.
Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor invites the player to solve a mystery at the stately home -- someone has broken in and ransacked the place while everyone is conveniently at the village fete. Players must search every room to find missing treasures and, "as discreetly as possible," find out who is behind the terrible crime. (Our money is on Maggie Smith's Dowager Duchess of Grantham). The game is available for Apple, Android and Kindle Fire smartphones and tablets.
