Who plays 'Watchmen'? You, if you have an iPhone

Need something to do while you're waiting hours in line to get decent seats for you and 12 other people for Watchmen? Obviously I do.

Need something to do while you're waiting hours in line to get decent seats for you and 12 other people for " Watchmen " this Friday? Obviously I do. Thankfully, on March 6, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will release "Watchmen: Justice is Coming" for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

This is a massively multiplayer online game based on the movie, according to developer Last Legion Games. You can create your own character and customize its appearance. Although how detailed you can get is not yet known.

If I ever dreamed about a "Watchmen" MMO, I did not envision it being fully realized on the iPhone. Honestly though, I don't know how I feel about this. On some level it just feels wrong to have a "Watchmen" game, period. I guess there are those purists out there who feel the same about the existence of a "Watchmen" movie though.

I'll try it out this week and report back as soon as I can on whether it's worth getting.
