Holy naff iPhone game Batman!
Yes we know that the Lego franchise is solely made for kids, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t enjoyed the odd game over the years. Sadly, despite the low price point, we can’t see how even the most ardent Batman fan is going to get much enjoyment out of this miserable effort, Although it features a fair amount of mini-games ranging from shoot-em-up sections to throwaway efforts based on Simon and pinball, it’s so crushingly dull to play that you’ll soon lose interest. Yes the visuals are fantastic, but slowdown continually rears its ugly head, especially when there’s a lot happening on screen but that’s about it. The accelerometer controls are pretty decent, but the actual touch interface is exceedingly poor and doesn’t always register your touch. Kudos to Traveller’s Tales for trying to take the franchise in a new direction but we’ll be leaving this well alone.
