The lights are on
Despite the show's questionable overlap with the world of video games, a new Family Guy video game is on the way.
The free to play game arrives next week on both iOS and Android devices, and tasks players with rebuilding the town of Quahog after it is destroyed by a giant chicken.
Previous Family Guy games released to poor critical reception on Xbox and PlayStation 2, as well as the previous generation of consoles. You can check out our review of Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse here. We gave it a 4.5 out of 10. Another Family Guy game, Family Guy Online, shut down before even exiting beta.

Our TakeThe one advantage this game has over previous Family Guy games is that is actually looks like the show, instead of a weird unattractive 3D version of it. Hopefully it will offer something worthwhile to fans of the show.
