Samsung’s Unicorn Apocalypse Isn’t Just Marketing, Live in Google Play Right Now

unicorn apocalpyse

If you feel like getting “Samsunged” today, head over to Google Play and download the real version of the game featured in their newest marketing campaign. That’s right, Unicorn Apocalypse is live and ready for you to guide this mythical creature through fire, bullets and boss battles. There isn’t any glitter to be found. 

If the game looks exactly like adultswim’s Robot Unicorn Attack, you’re not alone. They are so similar that adultswim might have some legal recourse as both games have you piloting unicorns through progressively harder obstacles, jumping and attacking to clear them. Unicorn Apocalypse was actually the winner of a contest run by Samsung, through Gamestop, which awarded an up and coming game firm $25,000 should they win.

Overall the game plays rather smoothly, but the game currently has many 1-star ratings in Google Play all mentioning glitch that causes your unicorn to run off the screen and never come back. Hopefully Samsung will fix this bug and not just write the game off as a piece of marketing, that certainly wouldn’t look good for their campaign. Hit the link below to get your unicorn on.

    Adult Swim actually made a bump about this a few days ago. I never thought Samsung would actually release the game, though.

    “Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences in North Korea claim they have found the “lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong.”

    I wonder if the nuclear threat from North Korea had to do with the disrespect of their sacred unicorn all along…..? Thanks Samsung for starting the apocalypse.

    Food for thought.

    Given the effort the marketing campaign implies is put into this game, it’s rather unpolished.

    • Droidzilla

      Marketing, by nature, isn’t concerned with bringing a good and complete thing to market; it’s all image. You can make good marketing from a good product, but you can rarely make a good product from marketing (even good marketing).

  • TheWenger

    We all knew it would happen.

  • Charlie the Unicorn

    “Charlie … CHARLIE …. You’re in two games that we never authorized!”

    • Droidzilla

      Ahh, they took my freakin’ kidney!

  • D Rich

    Robot Unicorn Attack much?

  • Flyinion

    If you install this while running AOKP does it double your unicorn or do they cancel each other out and wipe your phone…………………………………………………………………………

    • SeanBello

      no, your phone just burns into a bright pink flame

  • JoshGroff

    Just installed on my Note 2. Maybe I should’ve flashed AOKP first.

  • EvanTheGamer

    WHAT IN THE?! Awesome! I just KNEW Unicorns weren’t a myth…unlike that certain Phone with an X- attached to it!

    • Fattie McDoogles

      Agreed… but I’m not gonna lie… I was hoping they would make the flip covers.

  • Diablo81588

    Umm, what does a unicorn have to do with Samsung?…

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    This is the WORST game on the market… Play it for about 1minute till you end up in that RANDOM pit of fire… then game over

    • Droidzilla

      Maybe that’s part of the story-arch: you can’t escape the Apocalypse.

      I was about to say this! It reminds me of an unpolished alternative.

      • michael arazan

        Also there is a glitch in the game where you fall off the edge and instead of dying it just keeps collecting points.

  • Sirx

    Did…did I just get trolled by Samsung?

    • Mack

      Yes…yes I think we all did.

      • WAldenIV

        They didn’t even bother to use the latest logo with the decaying horn and the eyeball hanging out of the socket.

        • Fattie McDoogles

          And there was no glitter!!!!

          • WAldenIV

            There will never be glitter in this game…

  • Dc

    S4 shipping with AOKP – CONFIRMED

      lol

  • Futbolrunner

    Stupidest campaign ever.

    • Thomas

      Totally agree. I never thought I would miss their iPhone bashing ads, but this unicorn thing is just gay.

      • people these days..

        look, i’m not gay but you can’t go around saying things are ‘gay’. grow up

        • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

          gay

          • Thomas

            Awesome !!! Lol.

        • Thomas

          Excuse Mr. Sensitive, I’ll change it to “stupid”

          • on

            Change it back!!

          • Thomas

            Naaa, it seems some people got butt hurt over the word gay ;)

          • Mustang5Oh

            Who gives a rats ass? It’s the internet! Let them get their feelings hurt!

          • summit1986

            I see what you did there…

          • Thomas

            ;)

          • Sirx

            Good call. “Stupid” is actually much more accurate a description than what I presume you typed in there the first time. “Gay” kinda implies that the only thing wrong with the campaign is that it was lame or maybe not mainstream, when in reality, it was quite stupid, pointless, and has devolved into nothing more than annoying distraction (especially how the last commercial barely said anything about the damn S3, but talked on and on about this stupid ass “game” and some pointless fake phone covers. What was even the point of that commercial?!)

            Seriously, the only thing more annoying about Samsung’s marketing at this point is that damn “Samsunged” background music that plays in every ad >:-O

        • people theez days

          people these days……

        • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

          Your comment is not only gay, but also retarded. See what I did there. People get so upset these days you have to walk on eggshells. Its not like he used the f word or dropped the n word.

        • UmadBro?

          You.. good, butt plugging sir, are Gay.

        • yeah you are

          It doesn’t make you gay if he sucked my $@#;-), does it, I’m not he’s gay.

      • EvanTheGamer

        Like your comment? Yep.

        • Thomas

          Which one ?

          • EvanTheGamer

            ALL of ‘em!

          • Thomas

            STFU…LMFAO ;) :) Just busting balls bro

    • EvanTheGamer

      Stupidest is not “proper” grammar, friendo.

      • Futbolrunner

        Thanks, but I’m not going to change it.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Free Country, your choice.

    • Fattie McDoogles

      I bet you’re secretly hoping they come out with the Unicorn Apocalypse flip covers so you can get the pink one!

      • Futbolrunner
