One of the year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, launches today. In connection with the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s dark Batman trilogy, a mobile game has been released for Android 2.2 and higher devices.
The Dark Knight Rises: The Mobile Game is an action adventure title in which players take on the role of a long gone Bruce Wayne who once again finds Gotham in disarray. He puts back on his Batman suit and heads out on missions to fight crime and help restore order to the city.
Produced by Gameloft, Dark Knight features many weapons and vehicles that aide Batman in his quest to save Gotham. Players can utilize that arsenal as well as master many fighting moves in hand-to-hand combat. Different situations will call for different tactics as players complete missions and side journeys as they work to take down Bane.
Dark Knight Rises is available for $6.99 in Google Play. I’d love to give you my impression of the game, but it’s not compatible with any of the seven devices currently in my house. That’s right, Gameloft has once again managed to create a game that I somehow cannot play despite having multiple devices available for testing. If you’re one of the lucky few who manage to get the game loaded on your phone or tablet, please let me know if it’s any good.
