‘Evil Dead’ shooter app puts players behind the chain saw
Posted in: Games
The “Evil Dead” franchise is being resurrected (again), this time in mobile gaming form. A new iPad and iPhone app lets users maneuver Ash, Bruce Campbell‘s character in Sam Raimi‘s famous cult horror movies, as he wields boomsticks, axes and chain saws to take out 30 levels of Deadites.
The 3-D shooter game was created by Trigger Apps and Ghost House Pictures, Raimi and Robert Tapert‘s production company.
“Sam, Bruce and I have always been interested in finding ways to bring our 1980s ‘Evil Dead’ into the digital age,” said Tapert, who produced the “Evil Dead” films.
The game, which features the film’s original score, follows the movie’s plot in the first half of the game, then introduces new characters and story line in the second half. Tapert said the app aimed to “stay true to the feel” of the low-budget classic.
