That’s right Warner Bros, DC Comics have released Superman for the iOS platform in partnership with Chillingo and Tiger Games priced at $0.99. The IPad HD version costs $2.99.

This iOS version of Superman opens with Lux Luther announcing his company’s launch of satellite designed to prevent global climate calamity. Obviously Superman smells more of a Lux Luther created calamity. He investigates and discovers a force field surrounds Lex Luther’s satellite. Without walking you through whole plot the game does offer $0.99 worth of fun.
Like a few of the newest iOS games they built control buttons right into the screen with the directional button on the left and the action buttons on the right. You have to fly and fire the heat ray at moving targets which takes some practice. So far we have enjoyed the IPHone version of Superman after playing the first four levels. We will report our progress throughout the week.
