I’m “working” on a pretty massive iOS review at the moment (in the sense that it threatens to consume 20-odd hours of my life). All going well, the beef should be served on Thursday.
In the meantime, here’s a quickie to keep things tiding over (that’s what she said). Ever heard of Super Hero Matching?
If you’ve guessed that Super Hero Matching involves matching pairs of cards with little superheroes on ‘em, you’ve just earned yourself this many bonus points: none. The clue was in the title, and – even more obviously – the screenshot above.
And, uhm, that’s pretty much all there is to it. Super Hero Matching remembers your fastest time, which opens the door for “Try to beat my time – I DARE you,” type shenanigans.
But otherwise, Super Hero Matching is utterly bereft of alternative game modes, levels, power-ups, settings, options… You name it, Super Hero Matching doesn’t have it.
Interestingly, I’ve just noticed that Super Hero Matching seems to have disappeared from iTunes – both here and in the US. That might have something to do with blatantly – and presumably unofficially – featuring superheroes from the world of Marvel and DC.
Among others, there’s Thor, Hulk, Batman, The Flash, Daredevil, The Punisher, Wolverine, Spiderman, Captain America, Green Lantern, and Clark Kent. They look pretty cool, in a sort of cartoonish South Park type way.
Super Hero Matching was free, with ads, and would provide a fun distraction for kids. Er, if it was still available.
- Looks good
- Kinda fun spotting superheroes
- It's free
- Nothing at all in terms of options
- Seen it all after a couple of minutes
- Uhm, not available any more
Summary: Super Hero Matching is/was an oddly endearing card matching game, cheekily including superheroes from the Marvel and DC universes.
