Tried looking for a video, but only found a console trailer. And the WB web site does nothing - it loads to 100% showing the WB logo, then just sits there like that. Not very helpful...

BTW, KiddToKmart, if you do [appinfo=all], it will include the app description as well.

Just picked it up. Will post impressions in about an hour.

By the way, this was developed by the same folks who made Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2 for iOS.

Looking forward to them.

At least Warner Bros didn't pull a Gameloft by releasing this app a week after the movie's release

Okay, I've played through the first three levels (out of 9 -- not a long game) and it's basically an on-rails, level-based 3D shmup, somewhat similar to the first Iron Man game and ExZeus. You control Hal Jordan across the screen by direct touch, then tap to shoot, tap-and-hold, and tap-and-drag to fight enemies. A quick tap sends out a bold green energy; tap-holding sends out a more powerful bolt, but you can also drag to other enemies to do combo attacks. Tap and dragging initiates an attack that draws the enemy towards you and set him up for you to do Green-Lantern style melee attack, which you can use to throw him at another enemy for a combo hit. You also have access to a shield, which you active by tapping and holding your character (without moving).At the end of a stage you get a short dodge sequence. Based on your performance through the level you get a score and "will points" that you can use to buy upgrades. Level 3 ends with a boss, which you circle around (by pressing on arrows to the left and right of the screen) to find its weak point.

Those expecting a console-style story-driven game will surely be disappointed -- this is definitely an arcade experience. That said, the game has a decent amount of polish and it's fairly entertaining, if not a bit chaotic. The highlight for me so far was the boss fight (which I have yet to finish). It's only 9 levels long, though there are multiple difficulty settings and an upgrade system encourages replay. At this point I can't say I that I regret the purchase, but it's not a great game by any means.
