Pocket Legends Shows How to Create an In-Game Mobile Flash Mob

Spacetime Studios and “Bug Droid” were at it again during an E3 invasion in which they gave away over 11,000 Xperia Play themed vanity items to an in-game mob of Pocket Legend players. Sponsored by Sony Ericsson and Spacetime Studios, thousands of Pocket Legends players were treated to an online “Find the Droid” game in which players were given clues via social media outlets as to the in-game whereabouts of the “Droid” character. It then became a race against time for players to locate “Droid” and give him an in-game wave.

Every successful player received an Xperia PLAY button icon (X, O, Δ and □) to place over their character’s head. While these vanity items have no actual in-game benefit, it just goes to show you how much fun and player dedication can be had within the mobile gaming community.

This E3 spectacle wasn’t the first time Spacetime Studios released “Bug Droid” into the realm of Pocket Legends. His first introduction came shortly after the release of Pocket Legends for Android and his gift to successful adventurers came in the form of little green antennas. For some reason it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside when I see developers participate with their users in unique and fun ways such as this and it’s one of the many reasons why I myself am a devoted Pocket Legends player. Spacetime Studios’ overall commitment to its users, partners, and employees is exactly why Pocket Legends has remained the largest mobile MMO despite a number of competitors.

Be on the lookout for more to come from Spacetime Studios including the addition of Pocket Legends to the Xperia PLAY lineup, the release of two new campaigns, the raising of the level cap, and the introduction of player-run guilds. And let’s not forget the much anticipated Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles set to launch this summer.

So, did you get an Xperia PLAY button? What special item do you think “Droid” should give out next? Let us know what you think in the comments below and next time you’re playing Pocket Legends make sure to add me as a friend: LEVELM

    Definitely Blackstar style Helmets to promote the release in August. 

    Or some Fiery Antennae’s would be nice. xD

  • Rauen

    Ooh!  Fiery antennas would be lovely.  Or purple.  I love the animation when the Droid goes running around Forest Haven or Alien Oasis.  Makes me laugh every time.

  • Lowlyspy

    I got all four of the buttons and they look awesome!

    you guys could do vanity shield with the little droid symbol on it, or a shield that is the droid symbol like the gingerbread shield from the winter festival collection.

    Or a helmet that looks like droids head, but made so u can see the droid face and still see ur toons face, so maybe a droid beanie 😉

    I got all four buttons. Then I went to Verizon and tested the PLAY. I found the PS controller to be somewhat difficult to use. I used to play GT on PS1 (all gold everything) and I would say I am pretty good at steering using PS buttons, but the car was way out-of-control. I tried Crash Bandicoot and it was hard to see in fluorescent lighting, I can’t imagine trying to play it on a bus. (I also looked at the Windows Phone, and wondered why they bothered.) Well, at least this promotion did get me to try the PLAY, even though I did not buy it.

    How about something to wear on the arm, like a voodoo dool, only it’s the droid guy.

    a toilet to flush this game down!

  • YvonneL

    Vainty shield shaped like droid. Like the shields for int sets.

  • Orcish

    A little mini Droid doll would be great! Maybe have the head move or eyes blinking ?

  • well I wont pretend to hope you will have droid giving out shields.  those are pretty special.

    However, we are still missing a few colors on the spectrum of light.  Purple and brown for instance. nice little completion bonus might be cool too 😉

  • Mrsoo

  • M Jekoy
