Glitchsoft and Marvel this week released a mobile game called "Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Currently available for iOS ($2.99) and later for Android, the action side-scroller pays tribute to classic Uncanny X-Men comic books #141 and #142.
The game recreates "one of the most iconic stories" from the X-Men comic book universe, according to the Ottawa-based developer. Based on John Byrne and Chris Claremont's original comics, the game tells the story of the Sentinel Uprising. In the future, the world is in ruins, and the X-Men have failed to protect it. The X-Men have been granted one chance to re-write history and return to the past to stop this war from starting.
Players will experience fast-paced action as they navigate with one of five mutants—Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, Cyclops, or Scarlet Witch—while they fight for the future of mutant- and human-kind in two separate timelines.The game promises five hours is unique playtime across 23 stages, including a post-apocalyptic New York City and the X-Mansion.
