Most superhero movie-tie ins land on the iOS and Android platform a few weeks before the release of the official film. Not so in the case of Windows Phone it would seem, but we are still happy to get a chance to play Captain America:TWS a few weeks after.
In the game you play the iconic hero Captain America who must lead his team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents against villains such as King Cobra, Taskmaster, Puff Adder, the Winter Soldier and others who are intent on carrying on a vicious global attack. You can also call on help from the Avengers when the odds are stacked against you.
As with all superhero games you can upgrade your agent’s abilities and powers, your weapons and Captain America’s suits. Researching skills and items will help you grow stronger and progress faster. For the social gamer, there’s the option to play in asynchronous multiplayer mode against friends, create and join clans and fight against rival players from around the world for leaderboard glory. There are also cool rewards to be picked up if you participate in special limited time events.
The game’s original story is co-written by Marvel Comics writer Christos Gage and the art and graphics are inspired by the comics giving it an authentic Marvel experience. Captain America: TWS is not free to play, although you can demo the first two levels for free and then unlock the full game for $0.99. You will need an active and stable internet connection to play so bear that in mind before you decide to buy the game.
