DreamWorks has announced a SECOND Croods video game! The Croods is coming to iOS and Android devices on March 14. The game was made by superstar game company, Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds. Embedded above is a fun commercial for the game. Shown below is an infinitely charming watercolor-style ad.

Commenter Michael Martinez sent me this trailer for the upcoming Croods video game, The Croods: Prehistoric Party. It looks like a lot of fun! Incredibly colorful and shamelessly silly, it looks like the kind of game you could sit an entire family down in front of and they'd all have a good time. Extra points to the game makers for using Joe Moshier and Margaret Wuller's stripped-down character designs on the menus and scoreboards. Honestly, I think I prefer these designs to the 'official' ones, and I can't wait to see how they will be used in the future.

Late last week, Nintendo released a few new images from their upcoming Croods video game, The Croods: Prehistoric Party!. I'm by no means a serious gamer, so I asked my two Nintendo-obsessed nephews their opinion. They both said they liked the looks of it. One of 'em said that he was glad that it wasn't going to be a simple play-through of the movie, but instead, a series of small games and puzzles. According to him, whenever video games try to retell a film, the result is repetitious fight scenes and uninspired gameplay.
Hearing this, I thought, 'Cool. Then that's what I'll post.' But then I looked a little closer at this next image.
You know that old expression, “Go suck an egg”? Well, that is EXACTLY what the Croods are doing in this mini-game!
Reprinted below were my reactions, in chronological order:
Who would wanna…
It's actually kinda genius…
It's like a drinking game, only you risk getting salmonella poisoning instead of blood-alcohol poisoning…
Still, who would wanna…
Me! I would wanna...
I MUST PLAY THIS MADNESS!

DreamWorks and D3Publisher have released the first three screen-caps from their upcoming Croods video game, The Croods: Prehistoric Party! The game, first announced back in February, is being described as "a hilarious adventure through 30 unique and addictive party-style mini-games," and a chance to "explore spectacular landscapes in an incredible new world filled with never-before-seen creatures."
Next to drinking Coke Zero and sniffing long lines of lime-flavored Pixy Stix, there's nothing I find more addictive than "party-style mini-games." And when those "party-style mini-games" involve smashing seashells with antlers and jumping hurdles made of mutated mice tails, my friends and family would do well to start organizing the intervention a.s.a.p.
