| FOX Broadcasting has launched a web and iPhone-based game called Ambush (App Store) that ties to its TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Ambush is a simplistic MMORPG that places the player in a virtual city and relies upon real-time iPhone GPS location information to track players within the game world. |
The player must create an account at the web-based game site TerminatorAmbush.com and choose to play as either a Human or a Terminator. The player's mission is simply to survive in a fight to either protect or eliminate Skynet, the self-aware computer network bent on destroying the world.
Ambush can be played either online or on the iPhone. The online player's goal is to predict the movements of their targets in the virtual city and set traps in an attempt to terminate their iPhone opponents. The iPhone player's goal is to survive within this virtual city by sending real-time GPS location information and avoiding traps set by their online opponents.
The website's rules listing adds clarity to the gameplay:
