He-Man: The Most Powerful Game In The Universe was updated today, adding many-an-adolescent-male’s fantasy woman, She-Ra, to the roster of playable characters. She’s got her own moves and her own “feminine take” on things, whatever that means. Enjoy the video below, but ignore the “paint the hoverbots pink” part. That’s just pandering nonsense.

Gameplay Enhancements
· New moves and power attacks
· Two new areas of Fright Zone
· New Storyline—for the first time ever play as She-Ra
· Swiftwind attack
· New control scheme with added buttons
· Performance fixes and new playability enhancements

He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Thirty years after Mattel dominated TVs and toy chests with all manner of hokey and impossible men and monsters, The Most Powerful Man in the Universe is getting his video game dues.

What do you think of when I mention fur underwear, lots of muscles, and a really big sword? Okay, it calls a couple of different pop-culture icons to mind but what if I include flowing blond locks and an alter-ego that wears pink tunics? Couldn’t be anyone other than He-Man, could it? Well it is. And The Most Powerful Man in the Universe is getting The Most Powerful Game in the Universe at the end of the month by way of GlitchSoft (Destructopus, Star Marines) and Chillingo.

The developers have teamed-up with Mattel in order to bring the App Store an interactive celebration of the iconic 80’s action figure’s – I mean action hero’s – 30th anniversary. Hem-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe is quite possibly the first iOS Tap n’ Slash, too. Players will tear through several different environments and over 25 levels throughout Eternia as they attempt to thwart Skeletor yet again. The game features destructible environments, un-lockable and upgradeable attacks, hidden artwork, a very tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, and a surprisingly clever control scheme. I didn’t get the chance to play around with it at all but it looks pretty intuitive with the left side for the screen used exclusively for movement and the right for jumping, attacking, and a bunch of special moves.

The glorious homage to one of the manliest toys ever to have graced the 1980s – with its self-referential humor, giant boss battles, and promise of more content in the form of new playable characters and levels in the future – is due out in the App Store at the end of the month, specifically October 25th. I wasn’t able to get a solid price point but it should go for between $0.99 and $1.99. Very soon we’ll all HAAAAVE THE POWEEEEEER! Make sure to use it wisely.
