If you grew up on Legos like I did, you’ll be thrilled to know that the legacy (or Lego-cy as it were) has entered the digital realm for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
The Lego Marvel Super Heroes, from Warner Bros., adventure takes you through the Marvel Universe, and integrates seamlessly with a world of Super Heroes and villains just waiting to enter the wide world of Lego.
You’ll find Iron Man, Spiderman, the Hulk, Captain America and more with this comprehensive action adaptation.
This app is absolutely teaming with features. Some of the 90 + playable characters include Spider-Man, Captain America, Wolverine, and a whole slew of other classic figures. You’ll be able to unlock more features as you progress through 45 separate missions, and discover new gems along the way. You can use special moves and super power abilities to truly unlock the power of your character, and earn rewards by beating missions and completing tasks.
Simply put, there’s enough to keep you busy with this app. And then some.
Concept and Functionality:
The game runs well and has some stellar three-dimensional graphics. The gameplay itself will keep you at the edge of your seat, and is totally immersive. The only sticking point here is the sheer amount of space that this app needs to run.
At between 1.1 and 2.2 GB (depending on your method of downloading), this is a heavy app that anyone with a 16 GB device is certainly going to feel the weight of. At the same time, to build an immersive world, multiple characters and high-caliber functionality and graphics, it does take a significant amount of space. This doesn’t cause this app to lose points, but it is a caveat for potential buyers.
What’s not to love about this app? The price tag will literally set you back less than an actual box of Legos, and you can play it totally offline. For fans of Marvel, Legos, and especially both, this one is a no brainer.
It’s got enough action based content to keep adults glued in, but still takes a soft approach to violence and is appropriate for children. This is as nice as it comes when it comes to major titles, and we highly recommend it.
LEGO ® Marvel ™ Super Heroes requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
