King Games

King Games was a series of three video games (advergames) sold at Burger King. The games were available as part of a promotion during the holiday season from late November until December 24, 2006.

All three games were developed by Blitz Games (the Blitz Arcade Division), and were published by Burger King. They advertise Burger King in-game. The games were compatible with both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360, and feature online play through Xbox Live. The games were originally created as downloadable games for Xbox Live Arcade but were considered to be of such high quality they were instead moved to 'box product' and distributed directly at Burger King stores. Recently, it was revealed that future game(s) will be released for the Xbox 360 to advertise the Xbox 360's Kinect. The gameplay to the upcoming game(s) to the King Games series has yet to be announced.

Games

PocketBike Racer

Main article: PocketBike Racer

"Pocketbikes are called pocketbikes for a reason. They're small. Tiny. Minuscule. But small doesn't scare us. And we're putting you on one."

Sneak King

Main article: Sneak King

"It takes a special person to sneak up on someone with a hot, delicious sandwich. It takes an even more special person to get away with it. And only the King can pull it off with vigor, finesse, and a royal flourish. Because the King's sneaking talents are unmatched. Period."

Big Bumpin'

Main article: Big Bumpin'

"So, you've been on a bumper car once. And it was fun. But not as much fun as it could have been if there were no rules. Here's your chance to bump like you mean it. Again and again. With 4 modes of play and make you own character mode and 10 courses this is hard to put down. But Watch out for the hazards, such as bottomless pits, ice patches, and saws that come out of the wall."
