We announced this back at SXSW, but decided to do a little more in depth look at the game on the blog. When our friend Jason Eisener mentioned he wished there was a HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN game, we set forth to make that dream a reality. Using games like DOUBLE DRAGON 2, RIVER CITY RANSOM and FINAL FIGHT as inspiration, we teamed up with Alamo Drafthouse and Game Salad to create a side scrolling 8-bit NES style bloodbath for the iPhone.

More levels, enemies and bosses will be made available as free updates leading up to the film’s release May 6. We’re planning to release the game’s soundtrack on the website as well. And look for the brutal Jeff Proctor HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN poster to go on sale this week.
Hobo with a Shotgun: The Game is available here. (Note: It requires iOS 3.0 or higher and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 3rd and 4th Generation iPod touch and all models of iPad)
