Not only will the DC fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us be available for home video consoles a free-to-play mobile game is available now for iPad, iPod touch and iPhone. The mobile game features 3-on-3 tag team combat with a collectible card game-like combat scheme. Players of the both the mobile and console versions of the game will be able to unlock content via registering for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID).
The console version of the game will be available April 16th on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the WiiU. You can read the entire press release for the mobile version of the game below.
A few weeks ago, I was provided a download code for Skylanders Cloud Patrol, the new iOS game in the Skylanders franchise. Skylanders Cloud Patrol is an on-rails shooter, where you’re a Skylander and you are shooting trolls, sheep, balloons, coins but avoiding mines at all costs! Gameplay is super simple, simply tap the screen where you want to shoot – but while gameplay is simple and straightforward the game is fast paced and can be quite challenging.
As with the Skylanders console games, you can add other Skylanders to the game by inputting a code from the character card, in game purchase, or by leveling up. Using different Skylanders as you go through the game gives you the opportunity to complete different character specific challenges. It’s a smart way to tie in the existing Skylanders characters and universe.
Visually the game is bright, colorful and the character design is chock full of fun. I’m playing on my original iPad (I know, ancient technology) and have had no issues with crashes, glitches or anything of the sort. While I’m still not very good at the game, I’m having a blast with it. If you’re a fan of the console Skylanders games, you should check this out – and at $0.99 its a steal. You can find Skylanders Cloud Patrol in the app store and catch the trailer below.
I guess that it’s also app night here on AwesomeToyBlog, as I also wanted to pass on the news that Lego has their DC Super Heroes Movie Maker app now available on iTunes for free. This app lets you create a LEGO stop motion movie on your iPhone. It features simple tools and guides allowing you to shoot, edit, score your movie and save it to your phone to share. Check out the trailer below, or just go to iTunes and download the app – its free, so you’ve got nothing to lose!
A little over a week ago, I shared some screen shots and news of the iOS Skylanders game Skylanders: Cloud Patrol. I’ve had the chance to play the game and it’s actually a good bit of fun. I’ll be posting a full review in the next few days, but until I get a chance to do so – check out the trailer below. If you feel like giving it a go, the game’s just $0.99 in the iTunes App store.
