Everyone’s favorite first Avenger is coming to the big screen, however, it’s also coming to the little screen. Your Android device that is. The folks over Marvel have managed to bring us Caps’ adventures on our mobile devices and I must say, not too bad. I’ve only managed to play the first six or seven levels but game play is very smooth and the animation was great. Some 3D effects would have been great, but it wasn’t entirely disappointing to play in 2D. The graphics were of HD quality and I especially loved how there were no controls on the screen other than to throw Cap’s shield. You get to play and operate Cap on the full screen using only gestures. The game play was very responsive to my rapid multi-touches and comes packed with tutorials on how to jump, punch, slide and more, along with great up close and personal combo attacks. The pop-ups can sort of become annoying, however, I found them very informative while quick to return me to game play. But if you really wanted, you could easily turn the function off in the settings menu.
Head into HYDRA territory with your sights on Red Skull and reclaim your stolen comrades in this action packed game, all on your Android smartphone. I tested the game out on my T-Mobile G2X and as expected, having a dual-core Tegra 2 on board, the game ran smooth, like butter rolling off the pancake. Ready to download this bad boy? Head on over to the Android Market and give it a test run for yourself. Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s ready for tablets just yet. I was unable to see the game in the market with my original Galaxy Tab, which is running Froyo 2.2 (basically just bigger Android) So, there’s nothing that would convince me that the game is ready for Honeycomb devices. Hit the break for more screen shots and a video demo of Captain America taking names and kicking assets.
