Top 5 Film Tie-ins on iPad

Best ways to continue the big-screen experience on iPad

Ah, the mucky world of film merchandise. You've seen the movie - now buy the lunch box!

Video game movie spin-offs are different (in the main), though. Here, you get to absorb yourself in the fiction even more, and to take ownership (not to mention control) of the characters you love.

Read on as we throw ourselves into the scene and bring you the Top 5 film tie-ins for iPad.


Herge's famous tufty-haired detective made a triumphant big-screen debut in Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin, and Gameloft's iPad tie-in more than does it justice. Stealthily sneak past guards, engage in sword fights, and pilot a plane - anything the boy detective can do, you can do, too!

Through Telltale's entire series of Back to the Future tie-ins, we've been able to immerse ourselves in a beloved universe, with plenty of point-and-click adventuring thrown into the mix. Weaving in and out of the classic trilogy's narrative, Episode 5 brings matters to a satisfying climax worthy of Doc, Marty, Biff, and the rest. Great Scott!

Gameloft nabs a second spot on this list through The Amazing Spider-Man, an iPad tie-in for the relatively recent franchise reboot. The Webbed Wonder has always been one of the coolest superheroes around, so the ability to swing through the city, crawl up walls, and beat up hoodlums yourself results in a mightily fun game.

Most people probably haven't heard of Army of Darkness - it's a bit of a cult classic from the early nineties, and the third part of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead Trilogy. Fans will love this playful homage, though, and even the uninitiated will be able to get on board thanks to its intuitive (and highly entertaining) castle defence gameplay.

Temple Run: Brave distinguishes itself by not just being a movie spin-off, but also being a video game spin-off at the same time. In this title - which uses the popular Temple Run engine - you must guide Pixar's latest heroine Merida through a breathless 3D dash across the wilds of Scotland. New to the Temple Run mix is a series of archery sections, in which you're challenged to tap targets for bonus coins.
