Los Angeles, Calif. (December 19, 2012) – On December 10, MeThinx Entertainment released a kid-friendly interactive smart phone application called The Lost Medallion: Billy’s Adventure, that coincides with the storyline found in the captivating new film, The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone. The game is made for children ages six through 12 and takes players through a labyrinth with Billy and friends.
Billy adventures through the jungle on ten levels to find the lost medallion using his trusty set of tools, including a metal detector, shovel and more. Billy’s Adventure is available to download as an app on iTunes ® and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. The game can also be found through the Android app store for android devices.
MeThinx Entertainment also developed and released another game earlier this year, The Lost Medallion, closely resembling Angry Birds. This game was created for children age’s four to eight.
The new action-adventure movie, The Lost Medallion, releases nationwide in theaters on March 1, 2013 and stars Alex Kendrick (Courageous, Fireproof and Facing the Giants), Mark Dacascos (Iron Chef, Hawaii Five-O), Billy Unger (Lab Rats on Disney XD, American Treasure, You Again), Sammi Hanratty (American Girl, A Christmas Carol) and James Hong (Kung Fu Panda, Chinatown, Blade Runner). The Lost Medallion is brought to audiences by bestselling author and owner of MeThinx Entertainment, Bill Muir (The Crossing, Invisible Enemies) and aims to teach kids the value of friendship, teamwork and the truth of their tremendous value.
The journey of The Lost Medallion begins as Daniel Anderson (Kendrick) visits a foster home to drop off a donation and is quickly roped into telling the kids a story. Daniel tells the tale of Billy Stone (Unger) and Allie (Hanratty), two 13-year old friends who uncover a long-lost medallion and accidentally wish themselves back in time.
In order for Billy to save Allie’s life, he must give up the lost medallion to Cobra (Dacascos), who rules the island and its people. In order to retrieve the medallion and save the island people from slavery, Billie and Allie must work together with a young arrogant king (Jansen Panettiere- The Perfect Game), the king’s best friend (William Corkery), and a wise old man (Hong), who guides their way.
