The game was created by Iron Maiden “Nerds” who decided to put the band’s iconic mascot “Eddie” in a a variety of different situations. They also forced Eddie face challenges along the way just as Iron Maiden did throughout their career. Music is a pivotal part of the game and deep tracks can be heard throughout the game.
