Man of Steel, the game based on the popular superhero movie of the same title, is coming to Android and iOS devices. This is somehow expected since we have seen previous efforts to launch superhero games right after the release of their movie counterparts. We saw Batman and Spider-man games for Android and iOS, and we even saw an Ironman game.
Warner Bros., the outfit behind the reboot of the Superman franchise, is also the outfit behind the Man of Steel game. The game is available on the App Store for iOS devices like iPhone and iPad and on the Play Store for Android devices.
Man of Steel is a third person game with a gameplay that mimics the popular game Infinity Blade. Users need to swipe the screen to attack enemies and press buttons to dodge attacks. After dealing with one enemy, another one emerges. That’s what the game is generally about so if you get bored with this type of gameplay, you may skip Man of Steel and look for another game instead.
Man of Steel is not free, which I’m sure will make a lot of people sad. We’ve been used to getting games for free and when premium games like this one comes along, we get depressed, at least that’s how I felt. In any case, if you’re a true fan of the movie Man of Steel, or of the Superman character and franchise, you may still want to get the game. If you’re getting the iPhone version of the game, be ready to pay $2.99. The iPad version is even priced higher at $4.99. Maybe the tablet version is better, maybe it’s just a marketing gimmick. If you download the iPad version, kindly share your thoughts in the comments section. For Android users, you only have to deal with a single version that’s priced at $4.99. If you want to go far in the game, you might need to pay for in-app purchases.
