Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is about to become an action hero, as he is set to star in an upcoming iOS game called “Woz with a Coz.”
His costar for the video game is legendary movie badass Danny Trejo, who will help Woz slash up his wife’s kidnappers in classic 8-bit platformer style. Yes, I said Woz’s wife’s kidnappers…
Here’s all we know about the game, via Facebook:
In “Woz with a Coz” on iOS, the Apple co-founder and his wife, “J-Woz,” are enjoying their evening together, taking a glide. Unfortunately, their otherwise quiet evening is ruined — not by a competitive product release — but rather by street thugs kidnapping “J-Woz”!!! Your dynamic duo of Steve and Danny must hurry and swing into action as they tear up Fusion City in their quest to rescue “J-Woz,” and maybe cause a little mayhem on their way.
Apparently, Trejo will provide the brawn and the Woz will provide the brains as “players will enjoy Woz’s brain power, translator apps, Danny Trejo’s machetes, guns, and other crazy upgrades.”
The game is a promotional tie in to Danny Trejo’s Vengeance, the upcoming action flick starring Trejo, Jason Mewes, and 50 Cent (the full name of the new iOS game is Danny Trejo’s VENGEANCE: Woz with a Coz).
The game, which will mark the first time the Apple co-founder has starred in his own video game, is slated for a Thanksgiving release.
