Fighting Game fans on the iDevice have undoubtedly been getting their fill (and unleashing countless fireballs) with the recently released Street Fighter IV. Not to be lost in the Capcom hype and buzz, Artifical Life’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand has just dropped in price from $4.99 to FREE. Based on the original Starz TV series of the same name (produced by Sam Raimi), the iPhone game features great visuals, solid controls and numerous gameplay modes. For those who like the genre and/or enjoy the well received TV show, this is one App Store deal that shouldn’t be missed.
Games based on TV shows or Movies have earned quite an ill reputation on PC and consoles. A lot of cash gets put into the overall franchise marketing and the games themselves often turn out to be C class products. On the iPhone, however, quite a number of Movie and TV-show based titles have already been released and some have even received well-deserved praise. And I’m happy to report that Spartacus: Blood and Sand is one of the better ones.
