The Cradle Will Rock As I'm Drivin' Down Highway 40 In My Big Ol' Pick Up Truck.
Couldn't believe this when I saw it! Looks fantastic, perfect blend of classic influences and modern (but 2D) art style.
Now I don't get a chance to write about He-Man much in my job (actually, who does?!) but I just had to put together this little preview piece on MSN UK. I also included a link to matty (little reference to the MOTUC classics line there). Feel free to share and enjoy: http://tech.uk.msn.com/features/he-mans-30th-anniversary-celebrated-with-ios-game
Yikes! Some of those YouTube comments are terrible!
Be awesome for Xbox Live & the achievements alone.

I want Mattel and MOTU gamerpics as well. I'll NEVER change my gamerpic ever again if they did something like that.
I just think this is a good step in the right direction. This a new move. Hopefully a cartoon and then a ps3 Xbox 360 game.

That said, I still am loving this. I like the "Store" in the video - I'm really hoping ad-ons will be available - new lands to visit, new characters to play. The "overworld" of the game looks like it was intentionally designed to be expandable. Since hearing you can play as Sorceress, I am so glad they are so open like that - I want Evil-Lyn, Teela, etc.
I also had no hope that She-ra or anything PoP would be available, but there looked like some PoP locations in there, based on those Filmation versions. I wouldn't be surprised at all if She-ra herself isn't available in the initial version, and they add a "She-ra pack" adding her and more levels later you can add-on. While I am ever so greatful it's not a "build your eternia" Smurf Village/Jurassic Park/Simpsons Build Springfield game (those take so much time and/or money using consumables you purchase with real cash), I'm more than happy to shell out a few bucks here and there for updates like new characters or levels for a game like this.
Did anyone see this gameplay video? I think it looks quite interesting:
Man, the more I see of this game, the more I want to play it. Too bad I dont have an I-Pad or even a Smartphone. I am curious about Hordak´s role in the game though. So far every preview I have seen has showed him counted among the regular bosses, treating him almost like he was just another henchman of Skeletor. Hopefully that is not the case. (Actually according to that video, even Skeletor himself lists Hordak as a henchman.)
Also for She-Ra fans, its nice to see that even if she doesnt directly appear in the game, at least she is alluded to as her very first mini-comic cover is one of the collectables in in the game.
Thanks for posting the video, Irian! It looks great! I love the buttonless controls. You don't have to worry about keeping your fingers and thumb in a certain location.
All the extras make this an awesome package. I wonder if you'll be able to unlock or buy She-Ra as a playable character.
Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!
Where is the information regarding the Android release coming from? I am not able to find it amywhere, all the sites simply say iOS as the platform.
My kids played it today at NYCC... pretty cool overall!
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
At the panel, they said they are going to try to have a poll here to chose an additional playable character that would be added down the road. My vote is for She-Ra.
Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!
Controls look very cool. I hope they aren't too crazy to handle on the iPhone, though, since it's considerably smaller.
Still looking cool, but I doubt you'll be able to pull off those swiping special moves in the middle of a boss battle, unless they're pretty slow and predictable. Still looking forward to it of course....but I'm still not a fan of touch screen controls.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Man, this looks really great. I do wonder how the controls will be. I think this approach looks pretty decent, but I do wonder how you'll do some of it when you're holding the iPad in your hands.
They said in the Mattel Panel that if the game takes off, we might see a more robust version coming for the consoles.
I hope they have alternate skins...I've always thought that 200X He-Man and Battle Ground Teela would be the 2P skin if MOTU would ever get a video game.
• 200X He-Man
• Battleground Teela
• Original Toy She-Ra
