In this tug-of-war, casual defense game based on the MGM classic movie, you play Ash, the time-traveling, evil-fighting, S-Mart sales clerk as you defend Lord Arthur’s castle and the Necronomicon from the oncoming hordes of evil undead.

Of course, you can’t do it alone! Call upon multitudes of allies including Lord Arthur, Duke Henry the Red, the Wiseman, and many more to help you in your quest to defend the unholy book and use it to return to your own time.

ARMY OF DARKNESS: DEFENSE takes the witty charm of the cult classic movie and combines it with gorgeous graphics and innovative casual gameplay that is certain to entertain any mobile gamer. So, remember the magic words and make sure your shoelace is tied, because this is going to be an epic battle!

Features include:
-Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams
-Beautiful, fully animated graphics
-A wide variety of allies to summon including swordsmen, armored knights, archers, and more
-50 initial waves and an unlockable endless wave
-Awards and leaderboards via Game Center
-More than 100 hilarious quotes from the movie
-Countless hoards of deadites
-Originally composed music score
-Tons of special abilities including the boomstick, the chainsaw, the ’88 deathcoaster and many more spells
-All of your favorite characters including Arthur, Henry, Sheila, the Wiseman, Evil Ash, and many more!


  1. You cannot replay individual past levels unless you keep on dying, well…keep dying!! HAHAHA
  2. There’s no multiplayer game mode
  3. Resetting the game does not carry back all the gold & upgrades meaning start from ZERO Hmm

Overall, this game is addictive until you finished 50th wave & unlocked the endless mode which the fun factor decreases.

There must be a way to further enhance this game, my idea is to add multiplayer to the game and allow players to control the undead hoard!

Give players a fixed amount of Gold for them to select what upgrades they want or give fixed types of upgrades & troops for both sides and let game center auto match users to play each other!

However, that will mean either this app remains free forever & lower the coins earned in-game or make a special power up only available for in-app purchase.

This game does gave me the urge to watch the movie “Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness” again! It’s a fun movie and for those who had NEVER seen it go get the movie by hook or by crook!

Get the movie “Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness” from iTunes!
