Of course, this is announced the day AFTER I buy an Android…
Backflip Studios, in partnership with MGM Studios, is proud to announce that its highly anticipated homage to Sam Raimi’s Army Of Darkness is now live on the Apple App Store with Army of Darkness: Defense, a mobile castle defense game based on the 1992 classic film Army of Darkness.
Defense takes place during the pivotal castle scene within the movie where Ash and his allies defend the powerful Necronomicon within Lord Arthur’s fortress from the onslaught of Deadites. Gamers take on the role of the chiseled chin, one-liner-spouting Ash while summoning familiar troops, spells and weapons from the movie to help in the defense. Gameplay features include over 150 direct lines of dialogue from Bruce Campbell (!) as Ash Williams, and beautifully animated graphics using the well-known “Granny 3D” engine. In the game, Ash has the ability to call upon a wide variety of allies to help preserve the Necronomicon including swordsman, armored knights, archers and more. In addition to the originally composed sound and music, the app also features many of the famous characters from the movie including Arthur, Henry, Sheila, the Wiseman, Evil Ash, and more.
You can purchase the iPhone/iPod Touch version for $0.99 here and the iPad version for $2.99 here. I’m not sure if there’s a difference between tower and castle defense games (other than the exact location you’re stationed), but if it’s anything like Plants Vs. Zombies, I’ll be praying for a port.
