Developing a fusion of fitness manager and RPG sounds like a fantastic idea, especially in the aftermath of the crazed walking inspired by ‘Pokemon GO’ that proved games could get kids out and about provided the motivation was there. Sadly this is not the app to inspire anything.

Lili isn’t a new game on the iStore, but it does manage to remain one of the most beautiful, using the Unreal Engine to knock the infamous Infinity Blade series off of the top-spot for most impressive 3D world. It’s a vivid and well realised experience from the moment you first start the game.
DC Universe Online sets itself in the ‘old’ DCU as seen in the comics prior to Flashpoint and the advent of the New 52. If none of those things mean anything to you it summarises easily as ‘Superman wears his traditional costume and Wally West is still a red-headed Flash’. For people of my age that means a lot because ‘my’ DCU doesn’t exist anywhere else any more.
Kemco release RPGs at such a rate these days that some of them are going to miss the mark or be sub-standard. Hit-Point are not the strongest studio under the Kemco banner but honestly I hadn’t expected to encounter such a train wreck of a game when I booted this app up, I’d come in off the back of Alphadia and was expecting something similarly flighty and fun. Boy was I in for a shock.
