While the Futurama animated series may have come to a close in 2013, this doesn't mean the end of Fry, Leela, Bender, and all of the other eccentric characters that have become cultural icons through the cartoon's success and acclaim over the years. The App Store has already been blessed with the series in the form of Futurama: Game of Drones [Free], an interesting match-three puzzle title that launched in February 2016, and today Fox Interactive, TinyCO, and Jam City Company have announced Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, a brand new entry in the franchise that is attempting to emulate the characteristic humor and narrative from the animated series.

Although aren't many specific details of what the gameplay of Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow entails, considering TinyCo have previously worked on Marvel Avengers Academy [Free] and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff [Free], the most likely scenario is a similar game in this free-to-play, world building vein. The most intriguing part of the announcement is the involvement of the Futurama creator Matt Groening, the executive producer David X. Cohen, as well as Rough Draft Studios, who are the original animators of the cartoon. With such a strong involvement from people intrinsically linked to the series (in a similar manner to Matt Stone and Trey Parker's hands on approach to the new South Park games), hopefully Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow manages to capture the comedy that made Futurama achieve such critical acclaim over the years. For now, be sure to keep an eye on our Upcoming Games forum for further news and updates about this latest Futurama mobile title.

    do action then wait 5 hours before you can do something else, give gem to speed up time. You know its going to be one of them types

      How is this different from Simpsons: TO?

      Set 4 hour task, wait... give donuts to speed up.

      They are both grindy, they are both expansive (Simpsons has a vastly greater play space, though)

      They are both on my device, as is Smurfs Village and Disney: Magic Kingdom

      And the upcoming Futurama game will also enjoy a spot on my device

    Eurgh I wish it was the studios behind the Simpsons tapped out making this and not TinyCo. Both family guy and avengers academy are so grind based and money grabbing compared to tapped out.

      Yeah I've tried the Family Guy game twice and it's just so grindy. I've been playing Tapped Out for a couple of years.

  • Tikanderoga

    The last Futurama game was already a horrible disaster. Why just pile on with more rubbish. Family guy was just a waiting game, nothing else.

    • Jim Hassan

      While I admit that The Simpsons: Tapped Out has a vastly larger play space, it's pretty much a wait game as well with event-specific purchasable content that speeds things up. They are both the same general game as Smurfs Village (I play and enjoy all 3)

  • jati

    Im not very optimistic as well, but I will definitely give it a try.

  • Louis Miller

    And yet info also say that Itunes is compatible lie

  • Louis Miller

    I will not play simpsons unless they lower price on dohnut also earn more cash after objectives also earn more coins on family guy
