Batman’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, possessing a genius-level intellect and an endless arsenal of gadgets that let him maneuver and solve problems in interesting ways. He’s also known for getting into plenty of fistfights with thugs, and it’s this latter aspect that the iOS version of Batman: Arkham Origins focuses on. While Bats explores Gotham City, unravels mysteries, and terrifies criminals with stealthy scare tactics in the console and PC versions, his iOS adventure couldn’t be more straightforward, as he tackles tap-heavy one-on-one fights against a seemingly unending procession of goons.
