Whereas prehistoric parable "The Croods" receives its cinematic release the week of March 22, a tie-in game from the makers of "Angry Birds" will launch on Android and iOS from March 14.

Rovio's interpretation of "The Croods" gives players the opportunity to hunt and gather with
family father Grug, catching, collecting and leveling-up a variety of creatures from the Pre-Hysterical era.
It will be the second game outside of the "Angry Birds" series for Rovio, the other being "Amazing Alex," and the second to feature as part of a film tie-in -- the first was "Angry Birds Rio" for another animated movie, "Rio."
