Last week in Free App Friday, we took a look at Fix-It Felix Jr., a movie tie-in app for the celebration of retro gaming taking place in Wreck-It Ralph. However, if I were going to be completely honest, as fun as Fix-It was, that was a representation of a bygone era even by the time I first held up an NES controller. This week we celebrate a free app that harkens to a time that thumbs were blistered, giant robots and monsters were slain, and the guns were entirely unrealistic and awesome.
Back in February we wrote about a fantastic new platformer that was coming out called League of Evil. The game played very similarly to the independent gaming hit Super Meat Boy, which was (and still is) a very exciting thing for the iOS platform. Rather than struggling with touch screen controls like most iOS platformers, League of Evil excelled. Today we're getting word that the platformer has received its second big update.
Retro-inspired platformer, League of Evil, has been released on the App Store today. If you were ever a fan of retro classic, Mega Man, or modern classic Super Meat Boy then you'll definitely want to check this one out. At $0.99, this is an extremely cheap way to get your retro gaming fix.
