iHorror: Army of Darkness Defense iPhone App

All right, you primitive screw-heads, listen up!

Ya ready for something groovy?

Yesterday, Backflip Studios released Army of Darkness: Defense – an app/game that makes you Ash (fanboys rejoice!) and kick some serious deadite ass.

In perhaps the most perfect marriage of a film scene and game premise of all time, Army of Darkness: Defense is a castle defense game that takes place during the pivotal castle scene within the movie where Ash and his allies defend the powerful Necronomicon (book) within Lord Arthur’s fortress from the onslaught of Deadites (living dead). 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. Army of Darkness: Defense gives Ash 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.

I started playing around 5:00pm yesterday and haven’t stopped. Who wants to be productive at work – when you have to protect the book? Fair warning – this game is addicting. It includes sound clips – narrative by Bruce Campbell himself – and fantastic renditions of the film’s score. Do yourself a favor and snag it soon while it’s still only .99.

Because good, bad… YOU’RE the guy with the gun.

About Meg

Blond, bold and brainy. Already scared aren’tcha? When Meg’s not book learnin’ or arguing the anatomy of zombies – shes probably in the ocean, watching star trek, or forcing everyone around her to endure horror moviethons. Bruce Campbell? Her personal demi-God. Costuming, comics, charity work, college and a kidlet take up most of her time. But seriously, who needs sleep when you’re training the future generation of nerd? With great power comes great responsibility…..or something.
