If you love the Batman Arkham games series, but at least a little part of you longs to play a bad guy, we have great news for you. The newest Batman title for iOS, Batman: Arkham Underworld, puts players in control of Batman’s enemies in as they work their way up through the Gotham City criminal ranks.
In the game, players take command of iconic super villains such as The Riddler, Harley Quinn, and Killer Croc in the base-building title, recruiting and training an army of henchmen along the way. As a player’s empire expands, the stage is set for a face-off against Batman himself.
The game’s events are set before the happenings in Batman: Arkham Asylum, and a series of the missions in the game tie-in with the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie. Voice actors include Kevin Conroy from Batman: The Animated Series as Batman, Tara Strong from several Batman computer and console games as Harley Quinn, and Dini Andrade returning as The Scarecrow. Sorry, the Joker doesn’t make an appearance in this one.
