Gameloft just sent a raven our way with the new Iron Man 3 - The Official Game trailer attached, and so far, I'm really digging what they're showing. Gameloft might even be escaping the dreaded curse of the movie game by releasing a simple-ish game that just seems to fit with the IP instead of, well, Iron Man 2 [$6.99] which didn't really do much for me.

As you can see from the trailer, the approach they're taking with Iron Man 3 is more of an endless runner in the sky kind of thing. The marketing materials mention it being free to play, with suit upgrades and other things which I'm betting are all going to fit right in to that Temple Run-style power-up purchasing mechanic we're all ridiculously familiar with by now.

Iron Man 3 should be available with the onslaught of other games next Wednesday. If you want to be alerted when it hits, be sure to add the game to your watch list in the TouchArcade app [Free].

    • dariusjr98

      Freemium is indeed pretty bad. But seriously, every damn time I see you in the comments, you say that same thing over and over. Stop, please.

      • iValerio90

    Endless freemium crap!

  • wildperson

    I...I just can't picture this being very good. Endless runners are all over the App Store, and yet another freemium-focused one won't revolutionize a single thing. Unfortunately, this'll probably do very well on the charts.

      While I agree with you that it's hard to imagine this being very good, I fail to see how 'not revolutionary' could be the culprit. Plenty of completely unoriginal- even glaringly derivative- games are a complete blast to play.

    I'm selling a bargain $4.99 coin pack to GL which will entitle them to having me indulge them for a full 25 minutes! That's a 40% bonus quicker than compared to oranges.
    Supplies are limited.

    This looks sweet!

    Remember the days when Gameloft made Superhero games that followed a narrative and had missions? Man, TDKR was good. But I'm sure this will make them more money... I mean, I'll download it, as long as it isn't 1-2GB or anything close to that. They've seriously been making their games a little too big lately.

  • dariusjr98

    This shit will bomb. I guarantee it.

  • osvd

    Gameloft (massive iaps) + freemium + endless runner = shit

  • jironamos

    wow! another InApploft game!

  • BobCat5142

    Great, now we have to deal with another terrible FREE game from gameloft.... Gameloft is just proving that there is no hope for free games on the App Store

  • wojovox

    Movie spin off games tend to be bad, some exceptions obviously but this doesn't look like one.

    Will not even be considering this one.

    This looks a lot like the original Iron Man game for the iPhone. Almost the exact same.

  • Tomtomp44632

    Looks really bad. Like, really.
