LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes landed on the Mac last year and now an iOS version is here for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Produced by TT Games under license from the Lego Group and published by Warner Bros. Entertainment, LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes (I hate capitalized brand names so I’ll just write ‘Lego’ henceforth) has Batman and Robin characters joining forces with other Dark Comics heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and others.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to stop the notorious villains Lex Luthor and The Joker from destroying Gotham City. The game scored nice reviews due to its 3D platforming mechanics and light puzzle solving. I’ve include the launch trailer and more in way of detail after the fold…
The game features real voiceover, a first for Lego iOS games.
Players can choose between Classic and Touch Screen controls.
Here’s a summary from a review by TouchArcade:
You’ll run around doing 3D platforming and light puzzle solving, all the while beating up on both bad guys and objects and then collecting the sweet, sweet Lego studs that are left behind, which are then used to buy different characters and other goodies.
And when the included 80 characters are not enough, you can always get additional studs (and stacks of bricks) via in-app purchases.
Here’s the launch trailer.
80 playable characters
Justice League favorites such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash can be unlocked as you progress through the game or accessed at any time through purchase via our in-game store. Have Aquaman, Green Arrow, Cyborg and Hawkman help keep Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Penguin, and Catwoman in check!
Suits, gadgets and super abilities
Master abilities of suits such as Robin’s Hazard Suit equipped with a Pressure Cannon, gadgets such as Batman’s Batarang, and soar through the air with Superman as he fights crime with his Freeze-Breath and Heat Vision!
iPad Retina display compatibility takes LEGO games on the iOS platform to the next level.
Dynamic control styles
Switch between “Classic” and “Touch Screen” controls to find the play-style that suits you best.
