Prepare for great adventures

The Hobbit is a series of three epic fantasy adventure films directed, produced, and adapted to film by Peter Jackson, based on J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 fantasy novel The Hobbit.

The Brief

Engage both existing Lord of the Rings and new fans with a gaming experience by introducing all 13 dwarfs and their unique skills. Implement game mechanics with a realistic feel. Create buzz around the theatrical release.


In this game you will learn necessary fighting skills in preparation for your great adventures across Middle-Earth. The woods are full of danger, so you'll need to react quickly, defend yourself and take out your opponent. Play one of the thirteen dwarves and learn their unique skills. The game is all about timing: correctly respond to attacks as late as possible to surprise the opponent and counter attack.


We designed a realistic 3D arena and primarily focused on character design, animation and weapon handling.

By implementing a reward system for unlocking new content we increased the replay-ability value ("stickiness factor"). The game integrates with Facebook which stores the user's progress, adding a custom leader-board system and keeping track of achievements.
