Iron Man 3 for iOS hands on with Gameloft at GDC 2013

Iron Man 3 is coming to movie theaters everywhere this may, and coming with it is Iron Man 3 for iOS by Gameloft. Simon and I had a chance to go hands on with it at GDC, and while he loved the fast-paced gameplay, they had me at Hulk Buster armor. And Silver Sentinel.

Marvel and Gameloft fantastic with their blend of mainstream movie design and old-style comic book lore. It gets the wide audience, but also makes longtime fans of Old Shell-head smile their golden Avengers off.

Excelsior, guys! Can't wait until this lands in the App Store!
