Super Hero Wars
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Super Hero Wars by YaAppz! introduces iOS users to a world where they must battle against well-known superhero villains. Specifically speaking, players in this game are given the role of the superhero “V.I.R.U.S” to ward off evil enemies.
Super Hero Wars boasts of being a fun way for iOS users to battle off evil superhero “bosses.” Featuring three different difficulty levels (“easy,” “normal,” and “hard”), Super Hero Wars is a touch-screen-based app; in other words, this app is fairly kinesthetically interactive.
Players can either physically tap the screen constantly to move their character and to attack the consistently incoming enemies or, if you hold your finger on the screen, the super hero will move and shoot as the same time, making controls much easier. The only time you really need to “tap” is with a second finger, to shoot the stronger plasma blast shot. The developer really tried to make a game with easy controls, and we think they succeeded quite well.
The app also features background music and in-game sounds; both of these sources of sound can be switched “off” if desired, however. Other features of the app include 15 levels in 5 different worlds, the option to connect to various social media networks, and upgrades for weapons and health points.
While I personally found Super Hero Wars easy to enjoy and play, it did seem that the variation between different difficulty levels was not very noticeable, and much of the app seemed to be fairly repetitive. Even though it was a fun game for a short period of time, it was difficult to imagine users playing it for hours at a time. Super Heroes Wars is certainly a well-designed app in some aspects, but it really fails to grab a user’s attention for very long.
Appearance and Layout:
Super Hero Wars is both laid out and designed beautifully. Its graphics are perfect for an app of its type, featuring fun cartoonish-graphics that would look great in a comic book. All characters are easy to distinguish between, and no confusion ever arises of who the “bad guys” are. Navigating through Super Hero Wars is also extremely easy to do; user-friendly arrows and tabs can be selected to teaching them how to play.
At $0.99, this app is a fairly averagely-priced iOS game, and such a price is pretty fitting for it. However, while Super Hero Wars features well-designed graphics and is easy to play, the ease in playing it also makes it somewhat less entertaining. Overall, even though this app is priced fairly, some iOS users might still have a hard time justifying the purchase of it when they can easily get other arguably more fun apps for free.
