The most legendary heavy metal band of all time (sorry Black Sabbath!) is back in 2015 with a new album. We're obviously talking about Iron Maiden and their The Book of Souls. To promote the launch of this new album, they have also brought out a retro video game called Iron Maiden: Speed of Light, a true ode to the 80s'.
Back to the 80s'
The golden age of heavy metal was undoubtedly the 80s' and this game emulates an arcade machine from that decade. We'll have to help Eddie to destroy his enemy and rescue the girl. A platform game with a graphical quality that will bring back memories of your favorite amusement arcade from back then.
The gameplay si really simple and classic: avoid the bombs thrown by the bad guy and use different objects (axes, fridges, wheels..) to hurl them at him.
A triumphal return for Bruce Dickinson and co.
Take a look at the video and purchase the album
Speed of Light is the second track on The Book of Souls and also the album's first single. The song's video clip is also available and that's exactly the model followed in the game. Of course, you can also purchase the album within the game.
