iOS And Android Games Of The Week: September 7, 2012
Only one game stands tall across both platforms.
You don't need to perform a super human feat to dominate iOS and Android. Just release a quality game on Google Play and the App Store. Turns out, Marvel did exactly that, captivating our attention in the process.
iOS And Android: Avengers Initiative
In order to succeed with episodic games, you must keep fans hungry for more. Marvel took a step in that direction with Avengers Initiative, a 3D beat-em-up that takes its inspiration from Chair Entertainment's Infinity Blade franchise. Available for $6.99, the first episode sends The Incredible Hulk on a mission to track down a handful of villains that escaped a top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. facility. That said, players control the green monstrosity as he throws down with the likes of Abomination and Wendigo. User-friendly controls make dodges and punches a breeze, while rage attacks and finishers bring out the Hulk's best. Throw attention-grabbing graphics, impressive voice acting and upgrades into the mix, and you have a comic book recipe for success. The fact that future episodes star Iron Man, Captain America and Thor have us drooling.
