ParaNorman: 2-BIT BUB (Mobile Game):THE OFFICIAL MOBILE GAME FOR PARANORMAN, the animated zombie comedy in theaters August 17! 2-BIT BUB is an adorably odd action-puzzler featuring mobile gaming’s weirdest new hero, Bub, a ghost-dog in two bits. Slingshot Bub’s ectoplasmically conjoined body through stunning visuals pulled straight from the movie!
The Story Norman Babcock knows all the ghosts in Blithe Hollow. And none of them gets into more trouble than Bub. It all started when Bub ran in front of an animal rescue van (tragic, and ironic), thus beginning his afterlife as a bisected ghost-dog. Next, he took to playing with bones from the old graveyard. Turns out those were zombie bones, and the zombies want them back! Now Bub’s on a mission to collect all the bones he lost, swinging through levels on ghostly orbs to reach his goal!
