Here's an unusual ode to superheroes and it's the Guess That Superhero app. While this one isn't exactly a game it certainly proves to be entertaining as you try to guess each of the superheroes you're shown. The way this app works is that you're shown a picture of a famous superhero but it appears as a piece of pop style artwork. The images will increase in difficulty as you play and you need to be able to correctly guess the current hero in order to move on to the next level. There are more than 120 heroes to guess and let’s not forget you need to spell their names correctly.
- You are shown pictures of superheroes and you need to name them
- The photos appear as pop style artwork
- The images increase in difficulty as you play
