App description: Create your own superhero and cross paths with up to 150 other heroes & villains in the ultimate shared universe! Decide where your loyalties lie and fight for control of every corner of Super City as your own unique story plays out. Inheriting an above-average combat system from the Wrestling Revolution series, this game supercharges the action with new powers, technology, costumes and locations!

Upgrade to the "Special Edition" to save your changes to all characters and make the world your own. This includes starting with a character of your choice and never ending until you choose to. You can also enjoy setting up your own "Fight Scenes" to blow off steam with no pressure!

Look out for in-game hints, but the basic controls are as follows:
A = Attack (on its own to aim low, with a direction to aim high)
B = Block
A+B = Grapple
R = Run (double tap to jump or fly)
A+R = Big Attack
P = Pick-Up / Drop (with a direction to throw)
R+P = Set fire
T = Taunt, use prop, release hold
S = Special power
* Tap the portrait to transform (once activated).
* Touch the clock (or bottom of the screen) to pause the game.
* Tap the speech bubbles to speed through conversations.
* Pinch the middle of the display to zoom in or out.

Super City depicts a fictitious universe. Any similarities to real characters past or present is purely coincidental.

Haven't tried this yet, but I LOVE games that give instructions to controls in the app description. To me, it's like renting video games from blockbuster or other chains circa the late 80s early 90s and picking up the box and looking on the back to tell you the same button sequences to move for every game, ever... That alone is worth 3 of 5 stars not just for scratching a nostalgic itch...

That said, will test gameplay later

I just spotted this and look forward to trying it out. Although it's safe to say I will probably enjoy it since I am a fan of the other games in the series Hard Time and School Days. Having a superhero twist on the formula sounds like a great time and it looks much bigger in scope than his previous games.

Note: The iPad version is Super City XL which offers larger sprites for tablets.

This is the standard MDickie game, but with superheroes and a lot of sceneries to fight in. What's the objective? The iTunes description says "Decide where your loyalties lie and fight for control of every corner of the city as your own unique story plays out". Does that mean crash everyone you see?

Ok, so I've been playing this around 10 minutes now and it's very addictive. In the MDickie line, but you choose what path to follow: reign of terror or the good guys. Out of all the MDickie titles, this is the one I enjoy the most. I'm buying the "special edition" (premium version) right now. I'd rather have that one instead of the free + IAP.
