If you’re a metalhead with a smartphone and some time on your hands, then you’ll be pleased to know that Iron Maiden has just launched a new mobile game. Legacy of the Beast has just been released via iOS and Android, and it’s an action RPG that features the band’s mascot, Eddie the Head, as a protagonist traveling through time and space. The game, naturally, features songs from throughout the band’s catalog, including selections from Powerslave, Number of the Beast and Piece of Mind.
