It's just like being Tony Stark! Minus the women, money, genius, and booze. 

You might have heard about the new free to play Iron Man 3 on-rails shooter coming soon to Android. We caught up with the Gameloft folks here at GDC 2013 to have a go, and it looks fantastic. Players have to tap, swipe, and tilt to avoid obstacles and blow up bad guys.

Along the way, players collect tokens which can be spent on buying bitchin' new Iron Man suits and consumable power-ups.  Even though it largely follows the simple endless runner formula, the awesome graphics and wealth of unlockables guarantees you'll be playing this one for awhile to come.

Keep an eye out for this one in Google Play on April 25. Anyone itching to catch the new movie?

Hands-on with Iron Man 3 by Gameloft

This has been a running theme through GDC. I needled every dev I met about an Android version of whatever they were showing on iPad, and most of the time they said the Android version is coming later. Just a little discouraging. Figured Iron Man 3 was a big enough deal to show you guys regardless of the device it was being demoed on. 

Nope. Definitely a shift in gears, but I think it's easier to enjoy tiny bites of play with this kind of format. 

Looks like a rip off of Stan Lee's Verticus game for iOS. Another knock-off freemium game from Gameloft. Garbage.
