THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL! ON SAMSUNG APPS

He’s the man so manly, they had to name him twice - and now the 1980’s legend of Eternia is defending the castle of Grayskull over on Samsung Apps.

HE-MAN: THE MOST POWERFUL GAME IN THE UNIVERSE , is a classic 2D game which sees the player in the role of the pumped-up protagonist, as he joins forces with his trusty sidekicks to fight against his old baddies - yes, even Skeletor.

The game has proved popular on several platforms, particularly for its respectful nod to the classic retro game style of the cartoon and publisher Chillingo is delighted to see it on the Samsung marketplace, as the company is spearheading the 100% Indie initiative to publish indie games as Samsung Apps.

“The Samsung marketplace is a great place to showcase our games, and of course the 100% Indie team made the process very simple,” says Chris Byatte of Chillingo. “We do actually operate as two separate companies within one building so were very glad to have the 100% Indie team here pushing it through.”

The game is live from today.
