Disney Updates Free Tron App with new Light Cycles Game
Disney Mobile have released an update to their free TRON app just seconds ago which includes a new game featuring the iconic light cycles from the TRON: Legacy movie. Last Friday I had the chance to preview the new 2D light cycles game which is fun and extremely addictive.
The app update also includes the ability to unlock Daft Punk’s new single, “Derezzed” from the upcoming TRON: Legacy soundtrack as well as includes an integration of Tron merchandise including games, music and products such as Monster’s TRON Disk Dock Speaker that syncs with directly with the TRON app allowing you to use it as an alarm clock/visualizer set up.
In addition to previewing the new light cycles game, I also got a sneak peak at the premium TRON: Legacy racing game which will hit the App Store next month closer to the TRON movie launch. What I can say about the app is that it is very cool and will toss you “into the grid” even further.

About “TRON: Legacy”
“TRON: Legacy” is a 3D action-packed adventure set in a digital world unlike anything captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar® and Golden Globe® winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn’s Arcade—that could have only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually stunning universe—created by Kevin Himself—which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons and landscapes, and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
“TRON: Legacy” is directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver and Steven Lisberger. The story is by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz and Brian Klugman & Lee Sternthal, and the screenplay is by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, based on characters created by Steven Lisberger and Bonnie MacBird. Presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D and scored by Grammy Award®–winning electronic music duo Daft Punk, “TRON: Legacy” hits theaters on December 17, 2010.
