If you enjoyed Twimon or Super Twario, which are both past attempts at combining a Twitter client with some gameplay, you may want to check out TweetHeroes - a new iPhone Twitter application that's housed inside an role-playing game.

Playing as one of the patron saints of ancient China, you have to recruit troops from your online buddies, train them, and lead then into battle en route to conquering the entire world.

You can quickly jump out of these battles and into your Twitter feed with a simple tap.

TweetHeroes is currently available for iPhone priced at 69p / 99c. You can either grab it now, or wait until June 26th, when it will be free for a limited time.

Check out the screenshots in our gallery above.
