Funny sounds, quality animation, quality graphics, really addictive
Difficult to play without in-app purchases
Batman & The Flash: Hero Run for Android is probably the best runner game I’ve played next to Subway Surfers. Both games are similar, but this one adds superheroes, superpowers and superbadass fun.
Batman & The Flash: Hero Run is killer. Run through the streets of Gotham, jumping, sliding and collecting coins, all while fist pounding bad guys and flinging your Batarang. The game has a lot of speed and intensity to it. Obstacles come up in your path at a moment’s notice so you have to react quickly. Jump atop tanker trucks, duck under roadblocks, smash through pylons and collect loads of power ups and special abilities.
The controls are very responsive and accurate. I ran into no glitches and surprisingly, this didn't seem to kill my battery or make the CPU run hot. The graphics are excellent and really has the look and feel of comic book Batman and classic Joker. There's also plenty of options to play with alternate suits and looks depicting the span of Batman mythology.
Still not tempted? Wait, there’s more!
You can also run as The Flash. Who better? I don’t know where he’s running but the locale looks like some demented jungle setting. It’s actually funny to make either superhero go splat; they literally do the ol’ Wylie Coyote and face plant with a thud, then flop to the ground, unconscious. Too funny.
The downside of this excellent game is the pricey upgrades. It’s 20 bucks just to buy The Joker alone!! There are MANY cool options and gizmos to choose from, so if you get addicted to this one, which is likely, be prepared to shell out some coin. But I guess it’s all a small price to pay for truth, justice and the American way.
Simply put, Batman & The Flash: Hero Run has a lot of Ka-Pow, Biff and Thwack. If all that sounds good to you, you’ll love this game. Highly recommended.
