One of our very favorite platforming games here in the TouchArcade Mothership is Ravenous Games' League of Evil [$1.99/Lite], which was released and reviewed by us this past February. The charming pixel art and kick ass chiptunes created a modern-retro aesthetic that's right up our alley, and the virtual controls are amongst the finest we've ever seen on the iOS platform. The game can be tough as nails sometimes, but in that good "please sir, can I have some more?" kind of way.
One feature that has been requested by players ever since the original release is native iPad support for League of Evil. Today, that wish has come true. The game has been updated to be Universal, and it both looks and plays phenomenally on the larger screen of the iPad. One awesome little detail is that the game works in both landscape and portrait mode on the iPad, and I've found that I'm actually digging the portrait mode the most. It makes me feel like I'm playing a huge Game Boy, which is always a good thing.
Not to be overshadowed by Universal support in this update is the inclusion of full iCade support (including menus), as well as support for the wonderful little Joypad Game Controller [Free]. Both offer interesting external ways to play League of Evil, and are welcome additions. Finally, the game is now Retina Display optimized, and the 7 exclusive levels from the lite version have now been added into the full paid game. If you've been keeping the lite version on your springboard just for those levels, then you can now bid farewell to that extra icon.
Don't be shy and go grab the new League of Evil update right away, and get busy enjoying the game on your iPad as well as the many other new features that have been added.
