CoinMad introduces Find The Movie 1.0 for iOS. In the app, players try to find the name of a certain movie, based on a distinctive screenshot of the film. The app features a variety of movies, from blockbusters to lesser known European and Asian films and from classic drama films to spaghetti western and martial arts movies. With 2 different game types and 3 different difficulty modes, leading to 36 levels for the user to complete, the app has hours of guaranteed gameplay.

Back in the early 80's, in Athens, Greece, there were only 3 channels on TV for someone to watch. One night, at the age of 7, Manos Koufakis, saw a black and white movie on his TV. The movie featured a guy trapped in a basement that kept getting smaller and smaller as time went by. The movie was one of the most exciting things Manos had seen at that very young age but due to lack of information at the time and as he didn't see the movie from the start, he couldn't find out what the title of the movie was.

As years went by, all he could remember was a scene where the main actor of the movie was chased by a giant cat. He started asking friends, relatives and even some guys into movie films, but no one seemed to know what that movie was.

After the internet explosion, Manos posted a small description of that scene in a movie forum and he received numerous answers related to what that movie might be....and after a few days someone came up with the answer! The movie was named: "The Incredible Shrinking Man". And that ended a "life-long" search!

That was the original idea behind, "Find The Movie" App. To get people to find the name of a certain movie, based on a distinctive screenshot of the film. But to make it a bit more accessible to all sorts of film fans (from the die hard to the casual ones), it was decided to turn the App into a multiple choice type of movie game.

Another important decision, was to feature all kinds of films! From blockbusters to less known European and Asian films and from classic drama films to spaghetti western and martial arts movies. After 5+ months, more than 5000 different movies were selected for the App, making it at the moment, the world's richest in content mobile game movie App in the world.

The App features 2 different game types (level game and genre game), 3 different difficulty modes (easy, medium, hard) - thoughts to include an extreme mode was dropped (for the moment) leading to 36 levels for the user to complete and hours of guaranteed gameplay!

Manos Koufakis and Kostas Organopoulos, the 2 persons responsible for the App, are die hard film fans and love to share with the whole world their love for films, so Find The Movie was created with the intention of both entertaining the player as well as educating and introducing them to less known films worth discovering.

Welcome to the Find The Movie world and hope you enjoy the trip!

Find The Movie 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. A free Lite version is also available.
