Tom Hanks has a new App & Coming Project full of electricity.

Seems like everyone is getting into the mobile space nowadays. Recently a little known actor named Tom Hanks decided to make a push into mobile as well. I am not that familiar with the film work of Mr. Hanks but doing a Google search comes up with this picture.

Well Mr. Hanks I guess that acting thing did not do to well for you. We here at Best Apps Market welcome you to the mobile world. Hope your step in to the mobile world can bring you success.

Mr. Hanks new project is a a little thing called Electric City.  Whoa! It kinda sounds like Electricity. Well Mr. Hanks you are a witty one.

A tiny start-up named Yahoo(not to be confused with the delicious chocolate drink Yoo-Hoo) is involved in this electric project.

 "It's the first project in what we call online digital blockbusters," says Erin McPherson, vice president and head of video for Yahoo. According to McPherson,  Electric City is kinda like Lost for the digital age, aimed at 18-to-30-year-olds. Describing your app as "Lost" doesn't seem like a good start.

Check out an episode of Electric City on Yahoo Screen.

The art style seems like Venture Bros and I kinda dig the Us Vs. The Electric Company element to the show. A dystopian animated series could be good TV...um I mean MV(MobileVision). Well Tom Hanks is a pretty unproven actor but lets hope he makes a SPLASH and this game is a BIG hit and not CAST AWAY with the crap apps.

Check out a little bit about the two apps this Hanks guy is presenting to us. Lets hope they are great for those nights I'm SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE and doesn't really cost a MONEY PIT.  The first app is a free app to support the Electric City series and the second one is a 0.99 cent RPG. Hopefully they are both in A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN. Well check out the apps on BAM and leave a comment about what you think. I cant wait to see my inbox say YOU'VE GOT MAIL so I can check the feedback. In closing life is like Google Play, you never know what you will get. Make sure to use Best Apps Market so you get quality app recommendations

Electric City Mobile App
The app can be downloaded for free and offers several forms of original and exclusive content, including:
  •     20 Episodes: Watch all 20 original episodes as soon as they become available. Download Acts 1 – 3 individually or bundle the entire series. The first two episodes are available free, and others via in-app purchase.

Electric City The Revolt
Available for $0.99, the mobile RPG game allows players to step into the role of a key character from the series as he attempts to undermine the control of the Electric City and restore freedom to its people. Featuring high-end graphics, fast-paced action, and a rich storyline that will keep players hooked until the end, Electric City The Revolt was developed by the same team as hit mobile games for other popular entertainment IP such as Total Recall, Real Steel, Formula One and others.

The Story of Electric City
The world as we know it has ended, and out of the rubble, the Electric City stands as a symbol of peace and security. Yet under the veneer of order lies a world full of secrets and violence. Secret police, back-alley dealings, daring chases, and murder all find a home in the Electric City. Through the lens of a functioning yet dystopian metropolis, Electric City touches upon relevant global issues and themes including energy consumption, freedom of information, crime and punishment and more. The story unfolds gradually, layering mystery upon mystery, inviting viewers to interact with the content as well as each other. Metaphors and symbols are woven throughout, creating a perfect environment for puzzle-solving and community interaction. Like good science fiction, Electric City raises provocative questions about our own way of life and value systems. Short-form connecting storylines combined with vivid animation and a compelling score will keep audiences watching, while metaphors and a range of subject lines will keep them guessing—and reflecting.
