Mattel celebrates the 30th anniversary of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by teaming up with indie game publisher Chillingo and mobile developer GlitchSoft in order to produce and launch a new He-Man game for the iOS platform: He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe.
The game features 27 hack and slash levels spread throughout the kingdom of Eternia, boasting of responsive tap and slash controls, and featuring the franchise’s iconic characters He-Man, Man-at-Arms, Orko, and the villains Skeletor, Hordak (even though he’s actually She-Ra’s nemesis), Beast-Man, and others. The graphics for this game are slickly rendered 2D that take full advantage of the newest retina screens present in the iPad and iPhones newest iterations. The sprites look slightly caricatured/stylized instead of a straight reproduction of the 80s cartoon.
He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe is now available via iTunes and the App store for a measly $0.99.
