Batman Arkham City Lockdown comes out for iOS, lets you fight crime on the iPhone

Are you a big Batman fan? Then you must have enjoyed playing Batman: Arkham City that was recently released for the consoles and the PC. And if you enjoyed playing that game then you will probably love Batman Arkham City Lockdown as well, provided you have an iOS device.

Publisher Warner Bros. and developer NetherRealm Studios have brought the epic action of the Batman games on to the smaller screen of your smartphone and tablets. Batman Arkham City Lockdown makes use of the popular Unreal Engine that was found under the hood of the gorgeous Infinity Blade games and promises to be just as visually impressive.

The controls seem similar too. You play as Batman and control him in a third person view. Whenever you encounter an enemy you swipe across the screen to take him down. As you earn more points, you can unlock additional equipment from WayneTech, such as powered gauntlets, smoke pellets, etc. The game includes characters from the original Arkham City, such as the Joker, Two-Face and more with voices from the original actors.

The game supports downloadable content, so you can purchase and download stuff like additional skins and WayneTech points.

The game is now available for download on the App Store for $5.99 and can be installed on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 3rd and 4th generations and the iPad 1 and 2. You will need a Wi-Fi connection to download it, though, because it clocks in at a hefty 612MB.
