The DC Comics universe has come together on iOS in the newly released Lego Batman: DC Super Heroes, now available in the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The iOS version is based on the 2012 videogame of the same name, and brings the same great experience to the touchscreen.
The Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder are joined in their quest to save Gotham City this time by a bunch of other characters from the DC universe. Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, all join the fight against the likes of Lex Luthor, The Joker, Harley Quinn and The Riddler. All in all 80 different playable characters are available either by way of in-app purchases or by playing through the games numerous levels. The control system comes with a 'classic' and a 'touchscreen' mode, and it's a pretty fine playing experience in the touchscreen environment.
The Lego series of games offers a lighter side to many different franchises, and Batman is no different. There's just something about playing it Lego form that makes beating on the bad guys less violent. We've only been playing it a short time, but if you're into comic books, super heroes, or just like great looking, great playing mobile games, you'll want to take a look at this. It's a huge download, but if you give it a try be sure to jump into the comments and let us know what you think.

First game that I totally forgot I was using my phone, love it
This appears to be a pretty cool app. Thanks for a great review!
unlike Lego Batman 2, which supports two-player mode and has been positively labeled as family-friendly, this iOS version only supports single-player story mode. http://ios.appsgoer.com/lego-batman-dc-super-heroes-review-5338.html
