Remember Salt? No, not the tasty mineral humans require in moderate amounts, but the Angelina Jolie movie from this summer. Way late for the theatrical release, but just in time for next week's DVD and Blu-ray retail versions, Sony Pictures has released an iPhone and iPad game based on the film.

The good news is that the side-scrolling action game is free. The bad news is the game. See for yourself after the break.
