From the Press Release
Well hello Mr. Fancypants! Backflip Studios, in partnership with MGM Studios, is proud to announce that its highly anticipated homage to Sam Raimi’s classic film 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”. Available for the iPhone/iPod Touch for $0.99 and for the iPad for $2.99, Army of Darkness: Defense 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 swordsmen, 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.
