Doctor Who: City of the Daleks game launched

Bookmark and Share

Been enjoying the new Doctor Who series lately?

After a very lukewarm start, we have to say that the last few episodes have managed to be more interesting. Even if we’re still not convinced that Matt Smith can hold a small light source to David Tennant’s Doctor.

Anyway, if you’re a big fan of the Time Lord with the multi-purpose screwdriver, you’ll probably be interested to learn that the BBC’s first Doctor Who adventure game has gone live. A couple of days before it was originally planned (June 5th).

City of the Daleks is set in sixties London, where the Doc and Amy turn up to find our great capital in ruin, with the plunger-waving metallic maniacs swarming all over it, and generally ruining the ambience of a lot of great restaurants and pubs.

Two hours of puzzling gameplay is promised, with the usual quips provided by the Doctor, and his assistant doing all the leg-work (literally in Amy Pond’s case, via either a very short skirt or a very short pair of shorts).

The good news is this is a free download, too – and it will be out on the Mac as well, although not for another couple of weeks yet.

Developed by Sumo Digital, this is the first of four interactive adventure outings which the Beeb has planned.

You can download City of the Daleks from the BBC website, along with a range of other Doctor-based puzzle games, such as jigsaws.

  1. One thing you forgot to mention is, like most BBC website-related material, only UK residents have access to the games. Apparently a version will be available for purchase sometime this summer, which based on some of the comments I’m seeing on fan forums, is going over about as well as a lead balloon.
