Shaq stars in his first mobile game, ShaqDown, we're hoping it's not another Shaq Fu
Shaq has stayed away from movies, music, and video games for a while now, which is probably a very good decision to distance himself from the debacles of Kazaam, Steel, and Shaq Fu (the album and the game). But, the Big Diesel has made a comeback to games with a new mobile game, ShaqDown.

The game is nothing special, just another side-scrolling, endless running game in a sea of many on mobile, but it's not a terrible addition to that genre. The idea is that Shaq is the "Justice Bringer", the only man who can take on the horde of sentient zombies that have enslaved mankind (though we're unsure that they would still be called zombies if they are sentient enough to talk and actively enslave humans). 

The gameplay is the standard swipe up and down, plus tapping various spots. The highlight of the game could be the comic book style cut scenes. 

If you want to give it a shot, it's available for just 99 cents on either iOS or Android

They should have made this a sequel to Shaq Fu, remember when everybody loved that game 18 years ago?
