Captain America and the AvengersSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Captain America and Hawkeye must track down their fellow Avengers, Iron Man and Vision that were taken as prisoners by Red Skull, Ultron, Crossbones and Wizard. Their legion of thugs will always be on your way during the 15 levels of the game. Fortunately, those levels are pretty straight forward. Captain America (or Hawkeye) enter in particular areas (selected from a map) throughout the United States and fight the foes moving from left to right. The exit of each level is hard to reach since you need to find and open a specific hatch and collect a little red glowing ball that will activate the exit. Those hatches are everywhere in the maze-like stages. Also, those hatches will offer you some power-ups that will be very useful as you progress. Captain America's main weapon is his the powerful shield he throws at foes while Hawkeye is using his deadly bow and arrows. The controls respond well, without any particular glitches. Captain America needs to jump over several platforms in each stage and this is quite easy as the controls are not clumsy and they are reasonably set. Note that some levels start with Captain America and some others with Hawkeye as the main character. Apart from the arcade mode, the game offers a Versus mode as well, in which you choose either Captain America or Hawkeye and fight with one of the game's big bosses in a one-on-one fight. In this mode you can jump on platforms to avoid enemy fire.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game offers some nice colorful graphics with plenty of animated backdrops and well designed sprites. The open and the indoor areas are beautifully shaded although some areas are repeated but with different colors.The sound is composed of "catchy" -but rather repetitive- tunes along with a variety of sound FX.
