It’s been teased and teased, and just when Android gamers thought they couldn’t take it any longer (this is starting to get weird), Gameloft has finally dropped their official movie-tie in for Iron Man 3 into the Google Play Store.
Because endless runners are all the rage these days, Gameloft decided to go that route adding plenty of in-app purchases to the freemium title (Tony Stark is a businessman after all). Don’t worry about movie spoilers, according to the game’s description, the endless running/flying takes place after the events of Iron Man 3. Player navigate levels using tilt controls and swipe enemies on the screen to fire Iron Man’s repulsor beams. All the sounds are spot on with the movies, with Iron Man’s Jarvis making an appearance (call me crazy, but I think Iron Man might be voiced by Saved by the Bell’s Mario Lopez).
Graphically, the game looks stunning and Gameloft has definitely outdone themselves. The hefty 795MB game is jam packed with all the action of the movie, only in mobile form. Maybe a little too much action, as I’ve found the game runs rather poorly on HTC One. There’s 3 randomly generated levels in the game to keep gamers busy: Malibu Shores, New York City, and China. Players can also unlock (research) 18 different suits from the franchise (I really hope the original suit made the cut), and upgrade each armor individual with powerups.
Gameloft definitely knows casual and landing a licensing deal like Iron Man is sure to pay off. You guys can download Iron Man 3 via the Google Play link below.
