Become a superhero with the first ever motion-tracking workout game that counts every rep and every calorie of every exercise! Heroes aren’t born – they’re trained.

You’re pilot of the prototype AEGIS One battlesuit, tasked with defending Earth against alien invaders. Your punches become plasma blasts and your abdominal crunches power your suit’s reactor!

Made by Six to Start, co-creators of the world’s bestselling smartphone fitness game with over a million players, Zombies, Run!

Superhero Workout is the *only* app that can use your device’s front-facing camera to track your reps and calories. Prepare yourself for a brand new home workout – more interactive and more accurate than ever!

You’re Earth’s last line of defence, fighting the aliens across land, sea, air, and outer space. Get the most motivating and exciting home workout ever!

We’ve taken the classic “7 Minute Workout” formula and supercharged it with fast workouts that focus on different parts of your body. For the adventurous, there’s our Battle Workout mode – an interactive, motion-controlled endless battle against aliens!

Push ups and jumping jacks are great, but they can get boring. We’ve added mountain climbers, power squats, and punches to the mix – and even better, none of them require any weights or special equipment!

Superhero Workout is optimised for Apple TV, so you can work out in front of a big screen and position your device so it can track you best.

Climb the ranks of the Orbital Defence Corps by earning medals and Gamecenter Achievements for every rep and every workout you perform. Track your progress with detailed stats – we don’t just tell you how many workouts you’ve done, we tell you how many calories you’ve burned.

Would be great if it was customizable...

I desperately want to like this app. I like games, I like superheroes, and while I don't much like exercising I like things that make exercising more enjoyable. I was really hoping the Superhero Workout would do that. Unfortunately, the app lacks a critical feature: the ability to exclude certain exercises from a workout. People with mobility-limiting injuries (or who just live on an upper floor) may not be able to do certain exercises, but the only way to skip those exercises is to sit idle waiting for the timer to count down (or wave your hand a bunch to try to convince the motion sensor you're doing reps). At a bare minimum, the app should provide a "Skip" functionality for each exercise in a workout so you can skip the ones you can't do; and should show a complete list of all exercises in a workout prior to starting the workout, so you can see before starting a workout how many exercises in it you're able to do. Ideally, the app should have a selectable list of exercises so users can tailor their workouts to their own bodies and environment.

+1 star because I love the concept; -3 stars because I can't use it due to a critical design flaw. :(


Where’s the Support!?

I absolutely love this app. It has genuinely saved my life when I was at risk of getting diabetes. I adore the characters, and am fascinated by the story and the universe. Unfortunately, once the main campaign is finished that’s it. I truly want to see some continuation of this games story and universe with other pilots perhaps, in the vain of Zombies Run. Quite frankly I had gotten Zombie fatigue long ago and grew tired of that apps story, and found this one to be extremely refreshing. I doubt you will read this because the developers seem to just be focused on the success of Zombies, Run. But please if anyone on the development team can be spared, I truly believe there are more stories to tell and to expand upon, especially considering superheroes are more popular now than ever. Please, please consider supporting this app once more, thank you!


good concept, bad execution

First of all, app is inconsistent on delivering the biggest promise of counting reps via camera. While it usually double counts, some exercises don't use the counter on the other hand. And you're on your own with calibrating the camera, again which does not have any indicator on whether it "sees" you properly. Some kind of calibration indicator has to be implemented asap.

It also fails on reporting to the Apple Health front, which is a huge bummer when the selling point is the precision and automation. Just integrate it already.

And there is no support whatsoever for any kind of feedback. I don't need the storyline, I'm in for the functions. So, I don't think this is worth the money until these issues are resolved.
