Here's something fans of "Ang Probinsyano" will definitely enjoy. 

Xeleb Technologies, the same company behind several other celebrity-branded casual games, has created a mobile-game version of the popular teleserye. 

Now available on Google Play and Woot, the endless runner game lets users play as the series' protagonist, Cardo, giving them a chance to patrol the streets of Metro Manila, apprehend snatchers, and save children for chances to win prizes. 

A contract signing was held between ABS-CBN and Xeleb Technologies on Tuesday, which doubles as the game's official launch. 

“We are very happy that we get to promote the show's advocacy through a platform that appeals especially to children." said Deo Endrinal, head of Dreamscape --the producer of "Ang Probinsyano."

"With this partnership, we hope to provide not only quality entertainment but also highlight valuable lessons through Kapamilya teleserye-driven apps," Endrinal added.

According to Xeleb chairman and CEO Raymond Racaza, the "Ang Probinsyano" mobile game is just the first in a planned pipeline of games based on Kapamilya programs. 

"ABS-CBN has the intellectual property. We have the technology. It’s a powerful combination," Racaza said. 

"Ang Probinsyano" has been airing on primetime television since September 2015. It is consistently the most-watched show in the country, according to data from Kantar Media. 

The series, which stars Coco Martin, was recently renewed until January.
