Popular mobile game adds the First Doctor, Captain Jack Harkness and The Master!
March 7 th 2014, Los Angeles: Doctor Who: Legacy, the free to play, gem-matching, puzzle RPG game from Tiny Rebel Games, Seed Studio and BBC Worldwide, is pleased to announce the launch of the game on Amazon’s Appstore, joining existing versions on iOS and Android. Adding to the growing list of Doctors, the beloved William Hartnell will be dropping into the game. John Barrowman joins Legacy as the incomparable Captain Jack Harkness.
As time collapses due to the Sontaran attack, the Doctor’s old enemy, The Master, uses the chaos to begin construction of his own empire. Captain Jack joins the Doctor’s side as a new ally. All of this leads to the impending launch later this month of Doctor Who: Legacy Season 5, The Return of the Master!
Doctor Who: Legacy was named one of the 50 best iOS and Android games of 2013 by The Guardian and has received rave reviews from Doctor Who fan sites, mainstream and gaming press alike. It has also been cited by Digital Spy and others as “one of the more moral free-to-play games when it comes to how it treats its players”.
Team up with your favourite Doctor and head back through time - revisit your favourite episodes from the TV series and build a team of your favourite companions and allies including Clara, Rory, Amy, River, Sarah Jane, K-9 and dozens more, each of which has their own abilities to help you solve an infinite number of puzzles.
