Review: Superman (iOS)

Nov 28, 2011

It’s been a long time since a Superman-based game has been released that is at all worth playing. It’s unfortunate the platform is one that insists on short play sessions and limited depth and overall scope. But at the end of the day, Chillingo has delivered another fun game that really makes you feel like Superman.

The game is simple enough. You compete for best time or most points to achieve varied medals across predefined waves of bad guys, burning buildings, and falling space debris. As an iOS game, it packs the right amount of punch for those times you have 5 minutes to kill while waiting for the bus, train, or your wife to put her make up on. The game graphically and audibly doesn’t live up to the standards of other iOS games, but that’s just fine as it is fast enough paced that you don’t have time to stop and appreciate the surroundings. At $0.99, it’s easy to recommend.
