Army of Darkness: Defense for iPhone and iPad

by Rob Caprilozzi

Buckle up boneheads ‘cause you’re going for a ride! Backflip Studios (, the popular mobile game developer with hits such as Paper Toss, Ragdoll Blaster 2 and NinJump, announced today that through a partnership with MGM Studios, it will release Army of Darkness: Defense, a mobile castle defense game based on the 1992 classic film “Army of Darkness”. The game will feature the infamous dialogue from the movie’s protagonist, Ash Williams (memorably played by Bruce Campbell), and other characters drawn directly from the film. 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.
