“I am the Law” may be comic book anti-hero Judge Dredd’s trademark line, but you’ll be the one laying it down in the new Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 game for iPad and iPhone.
Taking its cues from the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books of the 1980s, it’s the latest from developer Tin Man Games whose Gamebook Adventures series is proving very popular on the App Store.
An interactive story with a digital dice and stat based combat system, Dredd is out to clean Sector 106 from undesirable underworld perps.
“We’ve kept the traditional melee turn-based battle system and skill rolls from our fantasy series, but also designed a faster and more intensive system for dealing with shootouts,” Neil Rennison, Creative Director for Tin Man Games told Judge Dredd’s creative stable over at 2000 AD.
“As Dredd you get to choose the difficulty of the encounter, which makes the rolls easier or harder depending on your Lawgiver skills. Do you choose to try and take down all of your enemies in one go, or just one at a time, risking getting shot by the remaining perps?”
Judge Dredd fans have a busy summer ahead of them, with Karl Urban donning the iconic helmet for the latest silver-screen outing for the character in Dredd 3D, hitting UK cinemas on 7 September 2012.
