A dark entity has cast a deadly shadow across the DC Universe, throwing the worlds into utter turmoil. The only option is to form teams of unlikely allies of heroes and villains – from Batman and the Joker to Superman and Lex Luthor – and destroy the vicious Manhunters and nefarious Nekron once and for all!

From the home screen, tap ‘Story Campaign’ to follow each stage of the storyline. Tap on ‘Battle’ to enter the battle preparation screen, where you can select up to four heroes to take into combat each turn. On the battle screen, the currently selected hero is shown with a blue ring underneath them. Tap on an enemy to attack, or tap the ‘Auto’ option on the top left to toggle the auto battle option on or off to speed up the gameplay.

▲ Each character and enemy has an affinity, shown in the icon above them. Refer to the diagram on the upper-right to see the correlations of strengths and weaknesses between affinities.

▲ Battle across familiar backdrops from the DC Universe as cinematic cutscenes take your battles to new heights!

▲ Collect ‘Hero Fragments’ as you play to gradually increase a hero to 5-star ‘Legendary Status’, which changes their appearance and unlocks new abilities.

After each victory, you can earn a variety of rewards, from experience points to new playable characters. Rewarded heroes can be unlocked by tapping into ‘Heroes’ from the home screen and tapping on their portrait. From this screen, owned heroes can also be leveled up, as well as have new super powers unlocked and upgraded.

Looking to duke it out against friends? Unlock the ‘Wraith Arena’ to access PVP gameplay, which pits your teams against others online. Earn rewards and rise through the ranks of 14 unique Leagues in a fight to the top! You can also take part in daily or weekly missions to unlock rewards to help level up your heroes to Legendary status, and take back the DC Universe once and for all!

Amazing graphics and potential to be amazing, but it has become so glitchy in recent updates. I'm stuck on the third level and I can't level up, so I can't play! Hopefully they fix this otherwise I'll be quitting.

Amazing! The graphics are sooo great, like playing on a PC or console. The only thing is, it's pretty short. Was a little disappointed to find that after level 30 things get really repetitive... so I started it over again!
