The HeroClix TabApp is an interesting, if not all that impressive, app for the iPad that uses HeroClix figurines in conjunction with iOS to make a game featuring the superheroes of the HeroClix series. When it first launched earlier this year, the app featured only Marvel heroes. But apparently the series is doing quite well, because HeroClix has now added some DC heroes to the mix.

There are two packs available. One includes Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, and the other is a “Dark Knight Rises” special featuring Batman, Bane and Catwoman. And the app, as you can see above, has been updated with new content for all of the heroes, so if you buy those packs, you can unlock and play the new games and settings.

Unfortunately, this app isn’t all that great, as I said in the review linked above. But it’s good to see that this is getting more popular. Hopefully we’ll see more and better interaction between the digital and physical worlds in terms of gameplay on iOS.
