On the close heels of the worldwide release of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' movie that stars Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and others, mobile game developer, Glitchsoft and Marvel have come together to release a new gaming app, Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past for iOS devices.
Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past will be a 2D action side-scrolling mobile video game that is a tribute to one of the classics from Marvel comics' UNCANNY X-MEN #141 and #142. This game that is based on the original comics by John Byrne and Chris Claremont tells us about the Sentinel Uprising, the handiwork of the TRASK industries headed by Bolivar Trask.
