6 Movie-Based Games To Celebrate The Oscars


Hello ‘Tangenters!

The Oscars are set to broadcast this weekend, so I figure that I’m not the only one in a movie mood.

Here’s a selection of movie-based games for you!

P.S. I kind of cheated and a lot of these movies are also based on books… so these are games based on movies based on books. Whoa, right?

Games Based On Movies

Shutter Island


Some places you can’t escape.

Play your part in this Scorsese thriller!



Be fashion-forward in Beverly Hills!

This classic movie, based on Jane Austen’s even more classic Emma, has a game that will throw you right into Cher’s world.

Mean Girls – High School Showdown


Claw your way to the top in Mean Girls!

How will you handle the Queen B in this movie-based game?

The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age™


Middle-earth’s fate is in your hands!

Excellent book, makes excellent movie, makes excellent game. It’s as satisfying as second breakfast.

Princess Bride


True love and high adventure!

If you aren’t in love with this movie… there’s only one explanation. You haven’t watched it. All right, all right. Not everyone has to have the same taste in movies. Jump into Buttercup and Westley’s adventure.

What are you playing this Oscars weekend?

    I thought the Princess Bride might have been interesting but it only works on a Windows system and I’m using a Mac now. :(

    I really loved the movie too.

      Hi Spock,

      Our desktop app works only on Windows machines. Maybe, your next machine? :)

      I love that movie, too. It’s absolutely brilliant.

    “As you wish.”

    “That’s inconceivable!”
