Seriously, it’s hard to go an entire day without some movie tie-in or other on the iOS App Store. Today’s odd adventure is a little app called TDKR: Gotham City’s Most Wanted. The app brings a familiar face masking mechanic to the world of the soon-to-be-released film from Warner Bros., The Dark Knight Rises. Say it with me, now, “I’m Batman.” No, say it grittier.
The final chapter of Chris Nolan’s ultra-gritty Batman saga is coming to theaters July 20, and to promote the movie, the devs have created an app that allows you to put your face in a Batman-flavored mask. You can become Batman, Catwoman, or villain Bane using the iPad camera, then share your image via Facebook, Twitter, Email, or the “Worldwide Fan Activity Map,” interestingly. Maybe it’d be good to know where other masked folks are hanging out?
It’s odd that Warner Bros. decided to only release this on iPad, as it seems like the perfect fit for a camera enabled iOS device like, oh, say, every iOS device. Anyway, it’s available now for free on the App Store.
