Colorado-based developer Backflip Studios (NinJump, Ragdoll Blaster 2 and Shape Shift), has put their excellent defense game, Army of Darkness Defense on sale for NOTHING through the weekend. As the title suggests, the game is based on the the popular Bruce Campbell film of the same name and features his voice as Ash spouts all of his famous on-liners. I purchased the game when it first came out and it is a lot of fun, especially if you are a fan of the film series!

In this tug-of-war, casual defense game based on the MGM classic movie, you play Ash, the time-traveling, evil-fighting, S-Mart sales clerk as you defend Lord Arthur’s castle and the Necronomicon from the oncoming hordes of evil undead. Of course, you can’t do it alone! Call upon multitudes of allies including Lord Arthur, Duke Henry the Red, the Wiseman, and many more to help you in your quest to defend the unholy book and use it to return to your own time. ARMY OF DARKNESS: DEFENSE takes the witty charm of the cult classic movie and combines it with gorgeous graphics and innovative casual gameplay that is certain to entertain any mobile gamer. So, remember the magic words and make sure your shoelace is tied, because this is going to be an epic battle!

The app is available in separate iPhone (reg 99¢) and iPad (reg $2.99) releases, but no matter which iOS device(s) you own, you might as well grab both while they are free, in case you ever purchase an iPad or iPhone in the future. Not even S-Mart can match this price….so download and defend!
