Backflip Studios Releases ‘Army of Darkness’ for iPad and iPhone

We normally leave iOS game coverage to our sister site, TouchArcade, though we couldn’t help but note Backflip’s latest release since it’s based on a movie franchise near and dear to our hearts: Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead . Backflip’s Army of Darkness hit the App Store this morning and features the voice of Bruce Campbell, the actor who portrayed Ash Williams in the movies, and hordes of deadites to defeat in this tower defense-styled game.

Backflip Studios posted this video to give a preview of Army of Darkness a few weeks ago:




If you’re unfamiliar with The Evil Dead trilogy, you can find the first movie, The Evil Dead, available for streaming through Netflix and for rental and purchase through the iTunes store here. Evil Dead 2 is available as a physical DVD rental from Netflix at the time of this post though it can also be purchased or rented from the iTunes Store here. Army of Darkness, my personal favorite, is also available as a DVD rental from Netflix and available from the iTunes Store here.

Backflip’s Army of Darkness is available in two separate versions for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, priced at $.99 and $2.99 respectively. Army of Darkness joins several other titles by Backflip Studios in the App Store, including Paper Toss, NinJump, and Ragdoll Blaster. You can find all of Backflip’s iOS apps here.
