loe3logoBack in May, Ravenous Games announced the highly-anticipated sequel to last year's speedrun-centric platformer League of Evil 2 [$1.99], titled, unsurprisingly, League of Evil 3. As a sequential release in the series, League of Evil 3 promises more of what fans have dug about the games over the years, including bite-sized levels, fantastic controls, and great art and sound. Of course there's new stuff on the docket as well, like new enemies, new environmental hazards, new costumes, a video replay system, and more. Check out the first glimpse of League of Evil 3 in the trailer below.

I'm a huge fan of the League of Evil series, which includes both the pixel-y look of the original and the smoother, cleaner look of the second and third entries. If you're a fan too then it won't be long now until we have League of Evil 3 in our sweet, sweet hands ready to hand our asses to us, as it's set to launch this Wednesday night.

I can't wait, so be sure to add it to your TouchArcade [Free] app to get an alert when it hits the App Store and check out the forums for some discussion until then. And as a bonus, if you need some brushing up on your platforming before then, grab Random Heroes 2 and League of Evil 2 which are both currently free to celebrate the impending launch of League of Evil 3.

    I generally like the LOE series, but this just looks like more of the same, without any new mechanics.

  • Chaz42

    To be honest, I'm not a fan of 2 and 3's art styles.

    • roguewaver

      Are they not identical, or is that the joke?

      whoosh? I'm finding it hard to read your apparent dry humor.

    Impossible levels!! I sorely missed them in LoE2. Glad to see they have them here. I hope they release more levels after the initial 80... even if they are to be separately purchased.

    Yes. I like it

  • Reignmaker

    Own LoE 2. Never finished it. I think I'm just bored with the whole "earn 3 stars every level" concept.

    • Peter

      Exactly.

  • GameExp3rt

    Wonder where's the superheroes

  • raviadso

    Love these games. The best "meat boy" clone on ios.

    I hope it brings something fresh to the table. I think they nailed it with the first release, but with all their subsequent releases they all felt too similar. And they need to inspire their music guy. As soon as any of their games start I hear the same music as always.

      I'd have to disagree with you a little here. Most of the subsequent games seemed like the same graphic set as LOE1 while LOE2 was fresh polished graphics. It did take me a while to get used to the movement of the upgraded hero as I was used to the blurred ball of pixels from LOE1 but once i did and when I switched to icade for controls it was over and I was hooked on LOE2 going forward!!

  • oooooomonkey

    I preferred the art style of the first game. Don't like the look of this one or the last one.

  • Peter

    What's up with all the Christopher Nolan-y/Michael Bay-y sound effects on the trailer? BWAAAAM

  • toolbag2009

    Makes me wanna play LOE2 again!!

  • onyx77

    I preferred 2 over 1 as it was more polished and could see that it would be built upon for future installments and levels. My only wish is going to be the same wish I have for every game that I really really like, the need for more levels!

    Somewhere someone is going to nail it. One of the top tier platformers is going to have a level editor with level share ability that other users can pay for by downloading level sets created as IAP! If even be down with being able to but LOE and LOE2 level packs as an I stall meant for the 3rd LOE as a start..

    Ravenous, LOE1,2,3 are too awesome not to do this!!

    Can't wait until LOE3 comes out! They should make it free, since its Thursday (App of the Week)!
