The 1925 novel has been made into six feature films. A seventh film directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, is currently in production.
The game is set in the 1920s and as the digital version of Nick Carraway, you search for Gatsby, throw your hat at enemies and down Prohibition era martinis. The start screen pays homage to the novel’s original cover, iconic as the novel itself. The game's soundtrack is also available for download. While this game pretends to be some long lost Japanese Nintendo cartridge, the game is actually of contemporary vintage.
