And here's the iOS game...

New 'Superman' Game Arrives for iOS Devices [Video]

It's been some time since fans had easy access to a modern Superman videogame -- let alone one they actually wanted to play -- but from the looks of Tiger Games and Chillingo Ltd's newly released Superman iOS title, the wait might finally be over... at least for fans with iPhones, iPod Touches and/or iPads. We saw a few images of the game prior to release, but video (as usual) seems like a better indicator of what's in store for players. See new video and images from the new Superman iOS game after the jump to get a feel for what it's all about.

Here's the lowdown from the Superman game's iTunes listing:


Soar across the Metropolis skyline and use all of Superman's most iconic powers, including heat vision, super-breath, super-strength, and super-speed. When the threat is a little further from home, fly into outer space to stop meteors and falling satellites in their path.

The 18 levels of superpowered action offer a perfect playground for putting Superman's abilities to the test. Save Metropolis from the villainous mastermind Lex Luthor and his army of thugs, mechs, choppers and even more menacing enemies.

Beat score challenges on each level to earn bronze, silver and gold achievements. Bronze is a piece of cake, but do you have the power to claim gold?

Original story and comic book panels give you the authentic Superman experience.

At $0.99 on the iPhone and $2.99 on the iPad, the new iOS Superman game is currently cheaper than even eBay's least expensive Superman 64 cartridge. I'm not an economist, but if you've only got a few bucks to spend on a Superman game that probably won't make you want to curl into the fetal position and weep openly, there's a certain value here.

Check out video and stills from the new Superman iOS game below:



I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
