Fact: the Evil Dead trilogy is one of the greatest pieces of cinematic horror ever created. There is no arguing it. And now, you can live all the fantastic, undead awesomeness of the final film, Army of Darkness, on your mobile. I'll give you a minute to soak up what you just read.

Army of Darkness: Defense is available on Android courtesy of Backflip Studios. In the game, you play the role of Ash (!) - complete with chainsaw arm and boomstick - and fight the undead masses to protect the Necronomicon and Lord Arthur's castle. You don't have to do it alone, however - there are plenty of allies ready to fight by your side at a moment's notice, including various swordsmen, knights, archers, Duke Henry the Red, and even Lord Arthur himself.

The game is free in the Store, so grab your boomstick, fire up your chainsaw, and hit the widget below.

    One of my favorite movies of all time, at least when I was growing up. How nostalgically hilarious.

      One of my favorite movies of all time, period! If they make an Android game based on Idiocracy they will have my top 2 movies covered.

    Anyone else notice the description?
    "From the makers of PAPER TOSS, STRIKE KNIGHT and NINJUMP comes the definitive Army of Darkness game for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad."
    I hope the game isn't as lazy as the developers. Especially since we're 2nd class citizens to them.

    I haven't seen the Evil Dead series so this game was not good at all for me. It's like Paladog and Samurai vs. Zombies (which has amazing graphics and is all around fun!).

    This game does NO justice to this franchise.... the game play mechanics are terrible. You have to consistently run away and turn around to shoot. (which is auto shoot might I add) Waste of time luckily not that large of a file so I wasted no time downloading.
