Thanks to TUAW for the heads-up on a game that passed me by when it was released in June, but which looks like a lot of fun for Marvel fans! As the game is currently on sale for $2.99 for the HD iPad version and $0.99 for the iPhone version, it seemed like a good time to check it out. Basically it’s a series of very simple mini-games where you get to use the powers of Marvel Super Heroes to fend off the attacks of cyber-bot versions of some of Marvel’s greatest Super Villains. For example, you can slash with Wolverine’s claws, rebound blasts with Captain America’s shield, capture with Spider-Man’s web and smite the hapless with Thor’s hammer. The game, which is made by Smith & Tinker and Marvel, features 23 classic play levels, three boss levels, an Arcade mode, and Game Center leader-board integration.
It’s very simple to play, and could get a little repetitive, but I can see Marvel fans enjoying the art style and gamers in general enjoying the pick-up-and-playability of the game. Free updates are promised too with new Super Heroes and Super Villain cyber-bots.“Marvel is thrilled to work with Smith & Tinker to offer this casual mobile game that includes some of our most beloved Super Heroes and villains,” said TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment. “Our new release features all of the game play one would expect from any Marvel title and we look forward to allowing fans of all ages the chance to take on new and exciting adventures with Marvel KAPOW!”
