Marvel: Avengers Alliance
Join S.H.I.E.L.D. to kick butt and save the world alongside your favorite superheroes -- Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and more.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance is the latest RPG from Playdom. In the game you are put into the role of an upstart agent in the Marvel Universe's covert operations facility S.H.I.E.L.D. The agency is staffed by regular humans, but they often get tangled up in the affairs of the superhuman community. In the game you are sent off into the field with the help of the likes of Spider-Man, Beast and Thor as they begin to investigate a mysterious new substance known as ISO-8. This new substance has been giving even the most basic thugs the strength to go head-to-head with The Avengers.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance is a nod to the classic turn-based role-playing games that gamers have loved for decades. Your party features three members, each of which will take turns attacking enemies in the battle screen. All of your actions from range attacks to defensive buffs to item uses, use stamina which will need to be replenished before each battle. The mechanics are simple enough, but there is a great deal of strategy needed in order to defeat your foes. There are many different character types in the game and five different classes to choose from.
