A video game adaptation of Cocaine Bear is available before the film is released in theatres. Cocaine Bear: The Rise of Pablo Escobear, a free-to-play video game adaption, was released Tuesday by Universal Pictures. The game can be played in your web browser or on your mobile device, and its 8-bit visual style is evocative of the NES.
A tweet from cocaine bear’s official account remarked, “Here’s something to entertain you”-

As far as I can tell, the game’s basic gameplay was inspired by Pac-Man. In this game, you play as the bear and must eat all of the humans in the area by navigating the several pathways using the arrow keys. In order to maintain his rampage, the bear needs to keep fueling up on the cocaine that has been spilled on the ground. Bonus points are awarded for catching an ambulance, alluding to a standout moment in the trailer. You can momentarily gain super speed by consuming all four of the duffel bags of cocaine that are scattered around each area.
The game’s killings capture the madness of the film even with its dated 8-bit visuals. The American black bear in Cocaine Bear finds a massive cache of the drug in the woods and goes on a deadly rampage after he consumes it. The teaser alone suggests a hefty body count, which is in keeping with the film’s R rating for “bloody violence and gore” and “drug content.”

What follows is the official plot summary for Cocaine Bear:
“Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner’s plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”
