In Playworld Superheroes gamers take on the role of a child
exercising their imagination. Gamers start with a helmet that they cut
the eyes out of. Then they can color it with a crayon. From there we get
a crest for our chests, and then an arm piece. As you progress in the
game additional gear is added.
The cardboard gear we wear completely changes in Playworld Superheroes when we go into an imagination zone. There we are a super hero wearing good looking gear. The graphics in Playworld Superheroes are very crisp and clean. In the imagination zones we fight off enemies. We can shoot them, throw bombs back at them, and fight them up close. This is the portion we spend more time in, and it is on the violent side.
Collecting purple orbs in Playworld Superheroes allow us to add gear to our characters. The more you collect in the levels the quicker you can get better gear. There are no in-app purchases in Playworld Superheroes. This downloadable only app sells for $3.99.
Gamers face multiple waves of enemies in Playworld Superheroes. The game play gets repetitive and boring after a couple of waves. To be fair it is not Playworld Superheroes fault. There is a definite disadvantage to playing games on the iPad due to the limited amount of controls available.
Playworld Superheroes may work better on the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita. Maybe a port will come in the future. As of right now Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy on the iPad. The creativity and mixing of imagination with the game play is really cool.
The bottom line for Playworld Superheroes is it is a creative idea that looks great. The repetitive violent game play mixed with limited action is what holds Playworld Superheroes back. Again I feel that is more system limitation than anything else.
