Whoever it was at Backflip Studios (Paper Toss, Ragdoll Blaster 2, NinJump) who thought it would be a good idea to resurrect Sam Raimi’s cult 1992 horror film Army of Darkness as a side-scrolling castle defense romp should really be getting a massive pay rise right now, as the recently released game has proved to be a huge hit with iOS gamers and critics alike, earning a rock solid five-star rating in the App Store.
In the game, the player takes on the iconic role of boomstick-wielding one-liner-quipping hero Ash Williams as he summons familiar troops, weapons and spells in a recreation of the movie's pivotal castle scene where Ash and his allies are forced to protect the powerful Necronomicon book from within Lord Arthur’s fortress in the face of the rampaging Deadite hordes. Over 150 direct lines of dialogue are featured in the game, voiced by the legendary Bruce Campbell himself, and other characters from the movie are also featured, such as Arthur, Henry, Sheila, the Wiseman and Evil Ash.

“If given the choice of which film would make the best castle defense game, you would be hard pressed to find a better fit than Army of Darkness, and I’m thrilled to be working with the fine folks at MGM to get Army of Darkness: Defense launched,” said Julian Farrior, chief executive officer and founder of Backflip Studios. “We are all massive Army of Darkness fans and it’s been unbelievably awesome to have access to some of the greatest dialogue and characters in film history. We’ve created a truly compelling mobile defense app with this terrific and rich IP that already has an enormous following. This will be a blast to play for both the hardcore AoD fanboys and the newbies alike.”
