Coca-Cola sponsored PlayStation All-Stars Island lands on mobile

Make Nathan Drake collect branded Coke Zero orbs in endless running mini-game.

Sony and Coca-Cola have released PlayStation All-Stars Island on Android and iOS devices.

The All-Stars Island houses a collection of Coca-Cola branded mini-games featuring PlayStation characters. The games feature LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy, Uncharted's Nathan Drake, inFamous' Cole MacGrath, and Kat from Gravity Rush. Each of the games is a spin on the endless running genre.

"Players are tasked with collecting Coke Zero orbs," reads an official FAQ for the game spotted by NeoGAF, "that are used to unlock special Coke Zero ‘MAKE IT POSSIBLE’ moves. There is one experience bar per mini game, per character and the player must fill all of the board to have all of the special moves."

"Players will be able to earn special Coke Zero moves within the game that ‘make the impossible possible’ e.g. Drake and Cole enter the LBP world," continues the FAQ. Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank will also make an appearance, and the game will allow those with eligible bottles of Coca-Cola Zero to scan promotional QR codes.

The application is being developed by Zoink Games.

The previous PlayStation All-Stars game, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for PS3 and Vita, was officially discontinued by Sony in August after the game failed to sell enough copies after its release last year.

Last year, Microsoft released a promotional Halo 4: King of the Hill game with Mountain Dew.

I guess someone at Coca Cola marketing didn't pay attention and notice that PS All-Stars was a spectacular dud for Sony.

 Why is Nintendo refusing to develop for mobile? This is the answer.

@Trance_Circa LOL!! PS ASBR is crap. I can see what stopped supporting it. Sony's not suppose to have Ads in their games. lmao!!

@Trance_Circa Of the 4 DLC characters released, the first two were free for two weeks. SSB never had DLC so you can't really compare.

@blackace @Trance_Circa Say what you want. I personally liked it, even though the game had some major flaws. It failed to due poor sails, which I think were cause of bad advertising. This app is an example of that.

I dislike how games are turning into marketing tools now.

You could argue that this has been happening for years now, but it's still wrong and sad. :(

@kiteinthesky What book of morality do you follow that comes to this conclusion? You know, the Domino's Noid and the 7-Up Spot both had their own games, that were also quite decent. However, marketing creates sales, and as with every product, you're going to see it combined. If Coke pays Sony to create a little marketing gimmick, then I see nothing wrong with it. However, I've been in broadcasting, television, and radio, and pretty much all medias rely on advertising to survive. That is just as it is.

@o016945 @kiteinthesky   It just doesn't have the same charm as the old marketing games like Cool Spot had -- not that most of the marketing games released back then were any good. I liked Cool Spot. But Cool Spot seemed more like its own quirky little game than a 7up advertisement for all of the product placement they put in that thing. This... just reminds me of those spammy Flash ads you used to see on Newgrounds. It just doesn't sit well with me.

Sony, don't to this to All-Stars. the first game flopped because you didn't have the guts to really invest in it. Please, put it down until yor ready to make All-Stars a worthwhile franchise. Maybe you could do a PS All-Stars Road Rage game or something as a racing game, and revisit the fighting genre when your ready to make something that isn't pitiful with content. The arcade mode and fighting was alright, but it's all you had to offer and for a 1st party game, we were expecting something a little more impressive. Don't pump out something like this unless you're willing to compete.

That said, I don't want the franchise to die, I enjoy the Playstation and most of it's games. Just don't half-ass it so much next time. (half ass being an overstatement, it was more like 1/5-ass).

@tommystockley I don't think the game was that bad. I actually enjoyed it, even though it had a lot of issues.

@jakass13 @tommystockley I hope it doesn't become a franchise.  It really wasn't good enough to be more than a one-shot deal.  The actual gameplay sucked big-time.

Dear Sony,

I love what you're doing with the PS4, really sticking it to Microsoft at every turn, but this... this is just sad.

PS-ASBR flops and then we get this crap? Wait a minute. WAIT A MINUTE!! I thought Sony didn't do ADS with their games and characters? That's what all the COWS told me anyways. I guess they were wrong once again.
