Unicorn Apocalypse is now a real game, available in Google Play Store
If Unicorn Apocalypse sounds familiar, that is because it was the name of the fake game Samsung created for its series of ads promoting its Samsung For Enterprise (SAFE) initiative. Focusing on the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung GALAXY Note II, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the ads centered on a make believe company developing the Unicorn Apocalypse game. In one ad, director Tim Burton made an appearance as himself, hired to direct a Unicorn Apocalypse film.

Now, the whole Unicorn Apocalypse thing has come true as Samsung is offering the game for free in the Google Play Store. Samsung apparently held a contest to devise a real-life game based on the ads, and here it is. The game features Linear Difficulty Scaling, 3 Menacing Boss Types, an Epic Metal soundtrack and an Engaging Apocalyptic Environment all in a free game designed for those with using Android 1.6 or higher. The game weighs in at 28MB and 91 out of 159 reviews gave the game just one star.

Regardless, as Samsung says, "Bring Forth the Unicorn Apocalypse!"

I can't download it and link to "Samsung Telecommunication America" doesn't work. Funny, but fake?

A worse Robot Unicorn Attack rip-off. I have shell shock syndrome with how bad Unicorn Apocalypse is.

For side scrolling game, its great. It's like the only game that actually understands you and doesn't put the damn buttons on the side you're automatically scrolling to. There are so many games out there that has buttons covering the side being scrolled and it just covers the entire view.

I hope Samsung will sell the Unicorn Apocalypse Case for the Galaxy S3, Note II and the Galaxy S4

Why would you play rainbow six on a tiny iphone, when you could play it on Android (pick any over 5")... This game was commercial that got out of hand, not like a "Tom Clancy" App game... Chill dude.
