CID The Dummy

Smashing its way onto store shelves.

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UK Friday 24th April 2009

CID is set in a near-future version of our own planet, where an obsession with safety has grown to such an extent that any product made or sold by anyone, has to pass a near-infinite list of safety tests. Be it a steamroller, a plimsoll, or even a book, it’s got to be safety checked by the Crash Impact Dummies! CID is one of these dummies, but he is bored with life, he just wants an adventure! And he is about to get sent on the mission of a lifetime…

Let Professor B M Werken show you how to get a hang of CID’s tricks, skills and weapons in preparation for your mission:

FIGHT: Learn from the Professor how to fight, beat your opponents - and watch out for those zombies!

SPRINT: You’ll need to gather up some speed to burst through walls and barriers – use the catapult to really gain some speed…

BAZOOKA: Use your bazooka, take aim at your targets and really blast ‘em!

PANIC: When all else fails – panic! Get that adrenalin going – who knows what you’re capable of!

So grab your bazooka and find out for yourself!

CID The Dummy on Wii™, Playstation®2, PSP®System, and PC are out now!
