Ready up your Boomstick and prepare to hail the king because Ash Williams, the unlikely hero from the Evil Dead series, is making a return to fight off the deadites and save world the once again. While the console versions of the Evil Dead games never fared very well, perhaps Ash will find his audience with the mobile demographic. Backflip Studios announced today that the cult classic starring Bruce Campbell will receive a castle defense game for the iOS mobile devices.

Julian Farrior, chief executive officer and founder of Backflip Studios commented in the press release, saying…
“We are all massive Army of Darkness fans and it’s been unbelievably awesome to have access to some of the greatest dialogue and characters in film history. We’ve created a truly compelling mobile defense app with this terrific and rich IP that already has an enormous following. This will be a blast to play for both the hardcore AoD fanboys and the newbies alike.”

The game is basically a side-scrolling, Streets of Rage style beat-e’m-up with all the gadgets and gizmos you would expect from a tower-defense title. What’s more is that the game has more than 150 of Ash’s famous lines, including most of the ones Duke Nukem stole from him. Don’t worry, Ash isn’t a jealous man, he’s too busy getting things done with his Boomstick.

Army of Darkness: Defense is set for release on May 12th, this upcoming Thursday on the App Store for only $0.99 on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and $2.99 for the iPad.
