Superman the official game now available for iPhone and iPod touch [Updated: iPad too!]
The mighty Man of Steel, the Last Son of Krypton, the Tomorrow Man himself has finally landed in the App Store with the official release of Superman for iPhone and iPod touch by Chillingo Ltd. This isn't a movie tie-in or flashy 3D flyer/fighter, this is a fun, casual, decidedly 2D adventure with an almost old school, retro platform feel to it. Check out the video above and the details below.
- Soar across the Metropolis skyline and use all of Superman’s most iconic powers, including heat vision, super-breath, super-strength, and super-speed. When the threat is a little further from home, fly into outer space to stop meteors and falling satellites in their path.
- The 18 levels of superpowered action offer a perfect playground for putting Superman’s abilities to the test. Save Metropolis from the villainous mastermind Lex Luthor and his army of thugs, mechs, choppers and even more menacing enemies.
- Beat score challenges on each level to earn bronze, silver and gold achievements. Bronze is a piece of cake, but do you have the power to claim gold?
- Original story and comic book panels give you the authentic Superman experience.
Note: Chillingo states that the game works on the iPad too. This is true however it is not a universal binary so you will have to run it in 2X mode which is never a great experience. Let's hope they get an HD version into the App Store soon.
$0.99 - App Store link (opens in new tab)

So i guess the people just walking nonchalantly on the streets aren't bothered by the Giant Robot.... cool
I wouldn't be worried either if I knew Superman had it handled.
hahaha, looks fun actually. and is only $.99, so it's not a huge commitment. :)
It's sad to say it, but this might actually be the best superman game ever.
Why does this look like a remake of an Atari 2600 game?
horrible looking graphics and what's up with the terrible music !!! I like Superman as much as the next guy but there has not been 1 good superman game ever made
The HD version is already in the app store and it's $2.99. #Fail
