Feeding Frenzy Ensues in Piranha 3DD Game
TWC Games, a division of The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films, unveiled its new take on horror with Piranha 3DD, an action adventure game now available for iOS and Android.  The game is based on the movie, opening this Friday, and takes place two years after the original Piranha 3D, where scores of prehistoric man-eating fish terrorized the coast of Lake Victoria. Now that the swarm of vicious piranhas has a taste for blood, they head upstream and slip their way into a newly opened water park where players will take the role of the bloodthirsty school of predators as they troll the shallow shores in search of soft morsels of helpless prey. This time, nothing and no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of the summer’s best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park.
