The YouTube comedy duo Smosh announced on Wednesday that its first foray into videogames, Food Battle: The Game, is now available on mobile for free download.

Created with game developers Roadhouse Interactive, the play-for-free title was inspired by Smosh’s annual Food Battle video series, which is currently in its ninth consecutive year and has received more than 100 million views to date.

Smosh co-founders Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox partially funded the game through an Indiegogo campaign that raised $258,517 last year. The action adventure game puts players in Anthony’s virtual shoes in a quest to defend the village of Tickputt against invading donut minions with food-based weapons such as a “celery sword,” “burrito bomb” and “egg roll hammer.” It’s available on iOS and Android devices.

Smosh is part of the Defy Media stable, which also includes Clevver, Shut Up! CartoonsScreen JunkiesThe Gloss and The Escapist. Smosh has more than 30 million combined YouTube subscribers, 19 million social followers and 12 million monthly unique website visitors.

In September, Lionsgate acquired worldwide distribution rights to The Smosh Movie, jointly financed by Defy Media and AwesomenessTV.
