Well here is something I did not expect to be writing about today. A Princess Bride game has been released on iOS. The game was developed by Gameblend Studios and is based on the 1987 movie that was based on the 1973 novel. And it actually looks pretty good.
The arty style is very reminiscent of the cartoon movies of old with sharp, detailed characters and neat backgrounds. There are four mini-games that see you wrestling with Giants, dueling with Inigo, climbing the Cliffs of Insanity and surviving the Shrieking Eels. The developer has also promised a free update that will take place in the Fire Swamp but that will come later. The gameplay itself is actually quite challenging but quite easy to pick up.
The only bad bad thing I can say about the game is that it includes in-app purchases on top of its $3.99 price. 20 “Miracle Pills” can be purchased for $1.99 and they are used in-game to play the games so you will either have to wait and get them for free or purchase them and jump in whenever you want. Still, if you are a major fan of Princess Bride, I would say the game is worth getting.
Whether you are looking for more information or feeling like purchasing the game, head over to its iTunes page now.
