Inconceivable! Twenty-Eight Years Later We Finally Have The Princess Bride – The Official Game

on January 11, 2015 6:25 PM

After nearly three decades of the beloved Rob Reiner directed classic, The Princess Bride movie is finally a video game for iOS, creatively entitled The Princess Bride – The Official Game.

For $3.99, Gameblend Studios has adapted the novel from William Goldman’s romantic fantasy-comedy, to take players inside the classic story to experience its best and boldest moments firsthand.

Consisting of four games to play within the adventure, players will take on the Shrieking Eels, climb the Cliffs of Insanity, wrestle a Giant (RIP Andre the Giant), and duel with Inigo “My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die” Montoya.

With music composed by Mars Williams from English rock band The Psychedelic Furs, each game mode will have its own unique leaderboard, challenges and rewards, including images and audio clips to unlock from the film. Future free updates will include players running through the infamous Fire Swamp.

Check out the trailer and screenshot in the gallery below.
