Legacy of the Beast is Android and iOS games by Iron Maiden Holdings and Nodding Frog Limited. It’s inspired by the band’s album covers art of legendary English heavy metal bands Iron Maiden.
No problem if you are unfamiliar with Iron Maiden and old school heavy metal stuff. You will love the games and the iconic skeleton artwork anyway.
Iron Maiden are a heavy metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris.
I even haven’t born yet at this time. I first know Iron Maiden is by their skeletal artwork that I saw everywhere when I was a kid.
And just found out their music when I was a teenager. I am not a diehard fans, but their music is good and I love their artwork.
