Warner Bros. releases Man of Steel companion game

Warner Bros. has release Man of Steel to the App Store, a game companion to the new movie, releasing in U.S. theaters on Friday. The game follows the plot of the movie, as Superman tries to save the Earth from the invasion of General Zod. A fighting game, Man of Steel focuses on one-on-one combat with various enemies, from Kryptonian soldiers to General Zod himself. The game is divided into Story and Survival mode, with Survival more of an arcade mode where you fight different enemies without following the story.

Superman's classic heat vision and super speed are present, and can change combat at a critical moment. After each fight, you gain experience, and that experience can be used to upgrade these abilities, including the damage they do, their duration, and the frequencey with which they can be used. Additionally, you can also use your experience to increase attributes like attack power, health, and block effectiveness. Finally, you can customize Superman with a number of Super Suits, each modeled after the different armors found in the game.

Man of Steel is available for the iPhone for $2.99, while a separate, iPad-optimized version is available for $4.99.
