The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises by Gameloft is a gaming app that was released the same day the movie came to theaters. The reason for my late download wasn’t because I was disinterested in the app (I’m always interested in whatever apps Gameloft makes), but instead because of the outrageous price of $6.99 to download! SEVEN BUCKS for a Batman app?!?! No thanks. I could buy seven apps for that price! Well, today I was searching through the app store and came across The Dark Knight Rises and saw that it was now only $0.99 to download. It was a thoughtless action. I downloaded it immediately. Before I begin to tell you about how this insane new Batman app will knock your socks off, I’ll tell you this. It would have been worth the seven bucks! And, coming from me – that means a lot!
The Dark Knight Rises’ outstanding graphics didn’t really surprise me, because Gameloft rarely, if ever, disappoints in the graphic department. The graphics used in this app are literally hard to peal your eyes off of. They are STUNNING. As for the gameplay, it’s pretty amazing, too! The Dark Knight Rises allows you to explore the city of Gotham while completing missions and even quests! If you’re a Batman fan, you probably purchased the app right away and spent the $6.99, but if you haven’t yet – do it now! Now that I’ve played the game, I know its worth. If you get it for $0.99 – you’re stealing it!
