Become billionaire Tony Stark as Iron Man in this free, fast-paced, endless runner, the official game of the upcoming movie!
After the events of Iron Man 3, Tony has become a peacekeeper, but new threats emerge regularly all around the globe and Iron Man is the only one who can take care of them. Get ready for intense action in this free, addictive, endless 3D runner!
Since Iron Man 3 premieres worldwide this week, we thought it appropriate to kick off our new series on mobile games with the official game for the new blockbuster. In this game, you get to fly around as Iron Man, ducking and weaving past jets, A.I.M. soldiers, oncoming traffic and through various parts of the city and face-off against various bosses. You get to upgrade to better Armor suits as the game progresses. Starting with the Mk3 suit, gamers get to work through 18 suits from the three movies. Each suit has different abilities and strengths and weaknesses. You also play through a story line that completes a little more every day, fighting new bosses and getting more clues as to where things are heading.
The pace is frenetic and game-play very smooth, even on an old Galaxy S2. The graphics are also very good.
There’s two negatives to the game though. The first – in-game purchasing. Game play eventually becomes stifled as suits become extremely expensive to purchase, meaning you’d either be playing for weeks to get the new suit, or you’d have to fold and buy credits to help the game along. The second – The characters’ voices are fake. The real actors (Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle) weren’t used for voices and its very obvious.
As with some of the higher end games, this one is a biggy. Make sure to download this via Wifi, as you might have to sell your car or house downloading this with your data plan. Still, this is an extremely addictive game and will surely keep you busy for weeks on end.
