This month, the Monty Python folks are putting on their last ever live stage show at the London’s O2 Arena. The hype around their last ever performance will undoubtedly be amplified by the release of their new ridiculous mobile game, “Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks” which uses one of their best ever sketches.

The game has been released for both iOS and Android in advance of the reunited comedy group's London performances. Hardcore fans who haven’t managed to secure one of the rapidly sold out tickets for the shows, can comfort themselves with the game instead.

The app has been developed by Boondoggle Studios, and John Cleese himself, one of the original Python’s, has recorded his voice for the game. Your aim in the game is to collect as many coins as possible while running around the streets of London. You have to avoid obstacles such as pigeons and rubbish bins, naturally.

Though it’s not the first Python app, you may recall. Two years ago, Python Bytes was released, which was a collection of 22 sketches from the first series of Monty Python's Flying Circus, and The Holy Book of Days.If the mobile game doesn’t sate your Python appetite, check out the song they recently uploaded to their YouTube channel, The Silly Walks Song.
