Run Route 66 with Forrest Gump

Marking the 20th anniversary of the Oscar-winning film “Forrest Gump,” Paramount Pictures and Genera Mobile have developed a “Run Forrest Run” game app you can download for free for iPhones and iPads.

And, yes, the app includes a section of Route 66, just like the film.

Here’s description of the game from the developer:

Recreating the famous scene in the film, Forrest Gump, sets off across the country collecting a band of followers. But the road isn’t as easy as he expected, and Forrest encounters unpredictable obstacles through different scenarios.

Guide Forrest on his trip and take control as he sets off from the humble countryside of Alabama, along the famous Route 66 and beyond.

Remember the world will never be the same once you’ve seen it through the eyes of Forrest Gump.

Here’s a trailer for the game:

And, for good measure, here’s the key scene from the film, with a brief appearance of Twin Arrows in Arizona and the Santa Monica Pier:
