Official Captain America: TWS Game Lands on Google Play, Haters of IAPs Beware

Is a new blockbuster movie on its way? Oh, there is? Is it called Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Well, that means we can expect Gameloft to come out with a new game for it, and in fact, they have. The game is now available for Android users through Google Play, complete with a price tag of free…kind of. 

In Captain America: TWS, you play as world’s most patriotic superhero, leading a squad of S.H.I.E.L.D. assault team members, battling baddies from different crime organizations. Better yet, when you get into trouble, you can call on a member of the Avengers for help, which is a nice touch by Gameloft.

The game features pretty good graphics, as well as a good multiplayer system for fighting baddies with your friends. You can learn new fighting techniques, unlock and upgrade Captain America’s suits, plus research new skills to help your progress through the game faster.

The game’s first two levels are free to play, but after that, prepare to whip out your Google Wallet. The full game needs to be purchased for $2.99, then following that, there are additional IAPs. The ol’ bait and switch. For shame, Gameloft.

    Looks like the classic Freedom Force, the first game by recent defunct Irrational Games. They also made a little indie game called Bioshock.

    Can anyone say “The Walking Dead” but with Captain America and friends…hmmmm. Not very creative Gameloft.

      If their games didn’t have the IAPs and charged a flat $5 fee I’d be more willing to actually try one out

        This x 10000. I’m more than happy to pay a few bucks for a game if it unlocks EVERYTHING. I’d even pay up to $10 for a game but I expect the full game to be available to me after that. Nothing more irritating than in-game currency that moves at a snail’s pace which all but forces you to buy the virtual currency with real money.

    Game may suck, but CA: TWS is one of the best stand alone Marvel movies. I urge everybody to see it.
