Giant iPhone launches Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
The new iOS version of the Tomb Raider game splashed across 56 iPad screens
Snow-weary travellers at St Pancras International station were in for a surprise at the start of this week when they were greeted by Lara Croft and the largest Apple iPhone they had ever seen.
Square Enix, the game publisher, created the world's largest iPhone from 56 Apple iPads to celebrate the launch of the iOS version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
The new Tomb Raider version for iOS devices was displayed on the "iPhone" at St Pancras, London, after which the iPads were given out to lucky passers-by. Each iPad came pre-loaded with the Lara Croft game.
Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher said, "Gaming on the move is a fantastic way to keep entertained on those long winter commutes. And with temperatures in the UK set to drop again this week, people need this today more than ever."
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is now available on the App Store, for £3.99 for the iPhone and iPod Touch and £5.99 for the iPad.
