I had seen the Masters of the Universe game that game out for Apple and Android as an app a decent while ago.  I downloaded it and it was decent fun for a few days.  But the graphics were so-so and the playability was moderate at best.

So when I came across this new game (unlicensed), I was skeptical.  But I saw the trailer below:

and decided to download and give the game a try.  THIS IS SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THE IPHONE GAME.  The graphics are very much like our beloved Filmation series.  I am imagining that they actually took some of the old cartoon and digitized it somehow because even the movements look a lot like old Filmation.

From what I’ve played so far (about 30 minutes), you can play as Sorceress, Man-At-Arms, Orko, and He-Man (occasionally with Battle Cat).  Each has the standard moves of walking, jumping, and attack.  But each also has their own combo moves unique that that character.

You fight hordes of enemies from the Filmation series: robot knights, shadowbeasts, etc.  But I’ve also come across Beast Man and a giant fist (Granamyr?).

The game is pretty fun.  But I haven’t played it long enough to know how long the fun lasts beyond the awesome nostalgia, but who cares, because the price is right at FREE.

Check this out and download it now before some lawyers somewhere file a cease and desist:
