Marvel Contest of Champions
A super-slick, super-polished fighting game featuring a whole parade of Marvel heroes. It’s fast, fun and will have you on the edge of your seat for every crunching blow.
Batman – The Telltale Series
Batman gets the Telltale treatment. Solve crimes, make choices and join the caped crusader in a dark and twisting adventure that’s fill to the brim with shocking moments.
Sentinels of the Multiverse
A smart digital version of the classic card game. It might take a while to learn, but once you’ve got the basics down you’ll discover a brilliant and tactical experience.
Marvel Future Fight
A midcore action RPG that sees you collecting heroes and villains from around the Marvel multiverse. You’ll need them all to stop the oncoming end of everything.
Lego Batman: Beyond Gotham
Batman might be dour and gloomy, but this game is anything but. All of your fave DC heroes make an appearance in adorable Lego form. This one will leave you grinning.
On the other end of the DC spectrum, here’s a game that’s all about smacking seven shades of super shenanigans out of sour-faced digital representations of spandex-clad heroes. Grrrr. That’s the noise this one makes.
Marvel Puzzle Quest
Collect heroes, match icons and become horribly addicted. This puzzling RPG is exactly the sort of game that’ll make you miss your bus stop.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
More Lego goodness, this time with Marvel’s roster of powered-up people-savers. Still silly, still charming and still more fun than any game based on a building toy has any right to be.
Another ARPG. This time you’re building up a team of DC heroes to protect the world from another catastrophe. Expect grind and grins galore.
Middle Manager of Justice
Even superheroes need someone to tell them what to do. And that’s you. In this game at least. Manage, fill out forms, and build the strongest superhero business in the world.
Download Middle Manager of Justice from the App Store
Teen Titans Go Figure
A gleeful riff on the Pokemon formula. Filled with jokes and joy, there’s almost nothing to dislike in this tie-in to the brilliant cartoon version of DC’s young heroes.

Powerpuff Girls: Monkey Mania
A solid and entertaining runner starring the Powerpuff girls. It’s not going to change the world, but it will keep you engaged for a few hours and sometimes that’s all you want.
Attack the Light
Steven Universe. RPG. Fun. Those are pretty much all of the words that you need to know to understand what you’ll be getting when you download this one.
Download Attack the Light from the App Store
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars
Fans of the Power Rangers are going to love collecting heroes and villains from the different eras of the show. The rest of us will enjoy all the punching and kicking.
Talking Tom: Hero Dash
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nah, it’s a cat with a mask running on its hind legs. Obviously. This super-powered runner is actually surprisingly good, though.
Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir
Another runner. This one’s based on the popular animation and sees you legging it through the streets of Paris to stop some terrible people from doing terrible things.
Batman: Enemy Within
The sequel to Batman – The Telltale Series. More bats, more men, and plenty more adventuring. It’s like living through a comic book. But with more animation.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn
If you don’t know what Shaq Fu is, then you’re probably young or incredibly lucky. The giant basketball star is a high-kicking superhero in this bizarre beat-’em-up. Worth it for the “whut?” factor.
Comix Zone Classic
A super old-skool action platfomer built around the comic book panels. Still really good, and it works perfectly on mobile.
Fist of the North Star
A mobile game based on the classic Manga. Expect incomprehensible punching and a story that you’ll need a PhD in “you what?” to get to grips with.
One-Punch Man: Road to Hero 2.0
Another game built around a Japanese phenom, and with even more incomprehensible punching. This one’s an idle game, so watch out for that.
Super Stickman Heroes
Stickmen heroes beat the living… sticks?… out of each other. Fast, fluid and actually an awful lot of fun.
Download Super Stickman Heroes from the Google Play Store
PJ Masks: Hero Academy
A smart tie-in that teaches kids the basics of coding. Learning and superheroes? This one has everything. Or, you know, two things at least.
DC Super Hero Girls Blitz
A bunch of kid-friendly mini-games that swoop past in super-quick time. It’ll keep little fingers busy, and that can’t be a bad thing.
Appointment with FEAR
A choose-your-own-adventure story where you build your own hero. Make the tough decisions, roll some dice and try and take down the evil FEAR. Or die and fail horribly.
Download Appointment with FEAR from the App Store
