Top 5 Superhero Games on iPhone

Best of the iPhone superhero games and tie-ins

With X-Men: First Class and Green Lantern 3D showing in cinemas at the moment (to vastly different receptions), and more metallic 'Bayhem' in Transformers 3 just around the corner, the summer blockbuster season is in full swing.

Clearly, the world remains obsessed with spandex-wearing crusaders and protectors - else the studios wouldn't be commissioning 'em! - so what are the highest rated iPhone superhero games?

Step away from that radioactive spider in the bathroom for a second and focus on Qi's Top 5 superhero games for iPhone.

And when you've finished rescuing all the damsels and preventing nuclear meltdown, get a load of one of our previous Apps of the Day Marvel Comics. The Joker would be so proud.

Whilst we salivate over details of The Amazing Spider-Man movie reboot due next year, we can get to grips with Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. Your arachnid-powered web slinger must overcome not one but six of his toughest nemeses in Gameloft's arcade-platformer adaptation. Andrew Garfield will only have to face two. Probably.

Michael Bay's films tend to polarise opinion (i.e. disgust critics), and the aforementioned Transformers: Dark of the Moon looks unlikely to buck that particular trend. Glu's Transformers G1: Awakening on iPhone restores some of the series's lost pride by pitting archrivals Autobots and Decepticons against each other in strategic turn-based skirmishes. Roll out, indeed.

Instead of going to the gym and actually putting in any kind of hard work, gain the muscular physique of a Mr. Incredible clone by downloading this entertaining romp. In The Hero – 2nd Edition, you fly around town saving babies, putting out towering infernos, and saying 'hi' to your adoring public at every opportunity.

Arguably the most beloved Marvel comic book franchise in history, X-Men transitioned to the video gaming world as smoothly as one of 007's one-liners. This iPhone remake of the classic 2D side-scrolling fighter doesn’t disappoint. Take control of Storm, Cyclops, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Dazzler, and, of course, Wolverine and battle past hordes of sentinels en route to the main man Magneto.

Whereas most freemium titles require you to sit and wait as gauges fill over time, Hero Project is much more engaging. In the tight-fitting boots of your own personal superhero, you must complete missions involving RPG-esque battles. It's free, so why not give it a bash, eh. You have absolutely nothing to lose and some major hero kudos to gain.
