The Tate has launched an iPhone game in which players travel through the history of modern art and have to foil an evil villain's plan to remove all the colour from the world.

Race Against Time, created by Somethin' Else, challenges players to defeat Dr Greyscale as they travel through the major art movements of 1890 to the present day as illustrated by artist duo Peskimo.

The game is available free from the App Store from today.
