A couple of days ago I posted about how a game based on the movie Kick-Ass was coming to PSN on April 29th. Today, the folks at WHA announced that it is also coming to what I call the “iWorld”. So yeah, you can kick some ass in Apple’s portable world on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad starting today. The game will be $2.99 across both Apple platforms and appears to follow the PSN version in terms of storyline and levels, just with unique touch controls. Check out the images below and head on over to iTunes if you are looking to buy……



WHA ENTERTAINMENT, INC. LAUNCHES KICK-ASS FOR APPLE iPhone, iTouch, and
iPad

Apple Versions Of Game Based On Motion Picture
Now Available For Download

New York, N.Y. April 17th, 2010 - WHA Entertainment announced today
that the Kick-Ass game based on the blockbuster motion picture of the
same name is now available worldwide for the Apple Platforms, iPhone,
iTouch and iPad. The MSRP for all Apple Platforms of the superhero
action game is $2.99. Additionally, the PSN version of Kick-Ass will
launch April 29 for the PSN for an MSRP of $14.99.

iPhone users can now download Kick-Ass for non-stop superhero action!
With the movie now out in theaters, players can live beyond the film
and take on the role of the Kick-Ass, Big Daddy or Hit Girl, three
super heroes with limited super powers. When the main character Dave
Lizewski, who is just an ordinary teenager with a love for comic
books, asks himself "How come nobody's ever tried to be a superhero",
he answers his own question when he dons a green-and-yellow
internet-bought wetsuit to become the no-nonsense vigilante, Kick-Ass.
"Because it hurts!" But, overcoming all the odds, the eager yet
inexperienced Dave quickly becomes a phenomenon, capturing the
imagination of the public. However, he's not the only superhero out
there!

Kick-Ass is a fully 3D action fighting game set in the third-person
perspective, where the player can play and control modern day super
heroes based on the super characters found in the film of the same
name. Gamers will be able to play as the three primary characters in
the film - Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. The story-driven game
draws heavily from the strengths of the intellectual property; an
action combat game where the characters finally grow sick of the crime
around them, and decide that they will do something about it.

Featuring multiple environments within New York City, iPhone users will
be faced with twelve story missions plus 2 bonus rounds, encountering
frantic super hero action as they face bosses and mini-bosses
portrayed by petty thugs and powerful mob bosses. Players will also
have a blast with sub-missions and mini-games in Arena Mode, to add
even more gameplay to the mix. Weapon upgrades are available as
players progress in the game, and twin stick shooter action and
environment finishers mean more gameplay variety! Staying true to the
intellectual property, the game will feature visceral combat and
plenty of gore, as the player's main goal is to bring justice back to
the city, no matter what the cost!
