The "Man of Steel" official mobile game will be landing on iOS and Android devices on June 14 simultaneously with the latest Superman movie flick from Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released the trailer of the new "Man of Steel" video game on June 7. The game takes inspiration from the iconic DC Comics character and the latest movie directed by Zack Snyder, top billed by British actor Henry Cavill.
"The 'Man of Steel' game allows Superman fans to extend the movie experience and game on-the-go with their favorite characters from the 'Man of Steel' film," said Greg Ballard, Senior Vice President, Mobile, Social and Emerging Platforms at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in a press release.
The "Man of Steel" mobile game was developed by Chicago-based company Phospor Games Studios, maker of the "Horn" and "The Dark Meadow." It will be available for iPhone and iPod Touch users for $2.99 on the App Store while a high definition version will sell for $4.99 for iPad users. Android tablets and smartphone owners can get the game for $4.99 from Google Play and Amazon Appstore.
"Phosphor Games delivered an addictive brawler that lets players feel the power of being a Super Hero," Ballard added.
The superhero beat-em-up game comes with two modes. The Survival Mode feats the game character of the game against hoards of Kryptonian forces led by General Zod who are trying to conquer the planet. Things get more difficult as the game progresses with attacks coming from both the air and the ground. There is also a story Mode that lets Man of Steel fans follow the life of Clark Kent from Smallville to his transformation to Superman who constantly saves Earth from Zod's forces.
"Man of Steel" players will learn new skills during gameplay and will earn points to unlock new Superman suits. They will also be able to share their scores and compare their performance with that of their friends who also play the game.
The trailer showcased the decent graphics of the game but it is obviously not at par with other superhero games such as "Iron Man 3" or "The Amazing Spiderman."
