In THE HUNGER GAMES: GIRL ON FIRE, you'll play as KATNISS EVERDEEN, the young heroine from District 12, whose sharp instincts are matched only by her even sharper bow-and-arrow shot.
With just weeks to go before the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss ventures past the fence and into the woods beyond District 12 to hunt for food for her starving family... only to run right into a swarm of Capitol-created TRACKER JACKER wasps!
Help Katniss find her way back home, while taking down the tracker jackers with your bow and arrow — but be careful once you get to District 12... The Capitol's hovercrafts may come looking for you!
May the odds be ever in your favor…
Guide Katniss's escape with simple touch controls:
- TAP on Tracker Jackers to shoot them down
- SWIPE UP to leap up into the tree tops and avoid enemy fire
- SWIPE DOWN to leap back down to the ground

Presented by Lionsgate and created by an indie game dream-team including Adam Saltsman, Danny Baranowsky and Paul Veer!
***ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES***
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 26 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following. It has spent more than 160 consecutive weeks/more than three consecutive years to date on The NYT bestseller list since its publication in September 2008, and has also appeared consistently on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. A Lionsgate presentation, of a Color Force / Lionsgate production, a Gary Ross film.

How do u jump?!
Okay dont get me wrong, this is a really great game and all, but how do u jump? I mean, ill be running when suddenly the wasps throw little purple clouds at me, and i cant figure out how to jump out of the way! Like how do you go from the ground to the treees? Whenever i double click, slide my finger across the screen, or tilt the ipod, it just shoots! (Not really when i tilt it; it doesnt do anything when i do that...) but still, how do i jump up to the trees, or down to the ground?
Great Game For HG Fans!!!
This is a fun addicting game for fans. I love how it's a different idea, the fact that you're running from tracker jackers. I LOVED the Hunger Games movies and books. This app fits it SO well. Though, I do wish some company would make a game where you fight in the arena. I would get that app the second it came out. But, it would have to be low iOS.( I have an iPad 1. I know, start gasping because you didn't think those existed.) this game has cool animation, old/new! So, GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this is or was a pretty fun game just if you just like a simple game where you avoid and fire at enemies which is why I thought it was fun. The reason it WAS a fun game was because I beat the game in like 30 minutes, I guess it was fun while it lasted. Also the game has nothing to do with the hunger games 😝. Oh by the way there is only two levels one is when your running through a forest and the second it where you fight this flying machine thing. I wish the game was longer, I guess that's why they called it the official teaser for the Hunger Games.
