It’s been a good day for Bat fans. First the epic Batman: Arkham City DLC for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 which brought 7 legendary costumes to consoles. And now the series spin-off “Lockdown” has been launched for Apple iPad and iPhone – bringing all the excitment of Arkham City to portable gadgets.
All the classic villains appear, so look out for The Joker, Two-Face and more as well as a legion of disposable baddies and iPad / iPhone exclusive character Deathstroke (No, it’s not Deadpool). Kick butts while donning a choice of iconic Batman cowls – some of which were included in today’s console DLC, such as the Animated Series Batman. The iOS version features one-on-one combat and individual fighting styles for each boss, meaning new skills will need to be picked up and skills and weapons will increase and become upgradable through lenghty play.
The game is developed by Netherworld Realms and distributed by Warner Bros and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen and iPad 1 & 2 (however one early downloader reports there were complications with original iPad). This Dark Knight adventure requires you to have iOS 3.1.3 or later and will set you back only $5.99 on the App Store. It’s worth it, if like us you’re addicted to Arkham City but really should get out of the mansion once and a while!
