After a bit of a delay, the first episode of Batman: The Telltale Series [Free] is now available on iOS. The game was delayed on mobile after releasing on console and PC, and there was no word just exactly when the game would finally release on mobile. With episode 2 actually out this week, it seemed odd that the mobile version still hadn't hit, but surprise! The first episode is out now, though the Android version hasn't shown up yet, and the second episode is "coming soon."

This is Telltale's M-rated/17+ take on the Dark Knight himself, with a 5-episode season planned. With the investigatory/detective nature of Batman, the character should be a good fit for Telltale's narrative ambitions, with plenty of characters for Telltale to call on, with Catwoman being among the cast for this series. And the dulcet tones of Troy Baker will be behind Batman. The second episode of the series isn't available on mobile yet, but hopefully the app catches up with the console and PC versions soon...

    How's the gameplay

    Good game, very stylish. I appreciate the iCloud save game support ...started it on my iPhone at bedtime but will likely want to have it on the bigger scrrrn.

    I'm finding it very buggy. Long pauses, loading screens go on forever, poor texture/visual quality. I'm running it on a 9.7 iPad Pro. Whatever optimizations they were doing that took this long to implement, it's enough but only just barely by what I'm seeing. Still fun, still playable, only one game-exiting crash, but lacking some polish it seems. There's a lot of conversations in this before the title screen even, and the faces are just smudgy messes for some characters. Hopefully a 1.01 fix will make things better.

      Experiencing the same thing on my iPhone 6+. Using iOS10.

      I second ornthird this. So true. I tried playing on my ipod6 touch(who has one right?lol) and it heats up the machine soooo much, plus it has loading screens that go on forever and graphics that end up being blurry. They really need to have a way to turn down the specs so it can be any good. It never crashed but itvstuttered a bit. Hoping a patch will solve this.

      Better to wait till the end to play, plus there's likely a sale as well.
