He-Man, the self-proclaimed most powerful man in the universe, is set to unleash the most powerful game in the universe on the Google Play Store this week. When He-Man was released on the App Store last year, it turned out to be quite a hit, garnering mostly positive reviews from critics and fans. Now it’s our turn to feel the wrath of Grayskull, as Android users have been waiting way too long to battle the evil forces of Skeletor.
Since releasing on the App Store, the 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up has received a number of updates, bug fixes and new content, including a new playable character, She-Ra. In this respect, Android users should be happy that we get a more polished game packed with more features on launch day, even if it did take 10 months. The game was also lauded for its clever and intuitive controls that help make swordplay fluid and effortless. Along the way, you unlock special powers and upgrades that improve your chances of making it across 27 levels across 7 areas of Eternia.
The announcement came from Chillingo’s Facebook page during the weekend along with the video below. The video, I presume, was supposed to be the Android launch trailer for the game, because it states that He-Man is already out on the Play Store. At the time of writing this, I still don’t see it, so keep refreshing the New Releases page throughout this week to pick it up as soon as it arrives.
[Update: It’s out now, and Albert has swiftly provided us with a review already!]
