We loved the recent video for Iron Maiden’s ‘Speed of Light’, which took the band’s Eddie mascot into a world of gaming. Now there’s an actual game to accompany it, launched on the band’s website. Designed to work across desktop and mobile devices,
it even has a chiptune version of the band’s single as the soundtrack. There’s a definite Donkey Kong inspiration too, albeit with the hero being less of a plump Italian plumber and more of a decaying metal mascot. The game was a collaborative effort between Will Beardmore and Josh Saunders in Warner UK Digital, Llexi Leon and Phantom Management, and games developer Last17.
