Following in the footsteps of Thor: Son of Asgard
, Marvel Entertainment has released a new iOS videogame tie-in for Captain America: The First Avenger
. Arriving on the iPhone/iPad in the form of one convenient app this week, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty
puts players in control of Cap in a $4.99 platformer filled with 24 levels of running, leaping, punching and shield-slinging. Check out video and images of the title in action after the jump.
Just as Son of Asgard
tapped comic book talent for its story and cutscenes, Sentinel of Liberty
features a story by Christos Gage with art by Ron Lim and Christopher Sotomayor.
From the official iTunes
Sentinel of Liberty features stunning HD graphics optimized for Retina Displays! Play as the Super Soldier Captain America in this epic action game. As WW2 rages, Red Skull is leading HYDRA as they build super weapons that will turn the tide of the war. To make matters worse, Falsworth, Dum Dum Dugan and Bucky have been captured. Go behind enemy lines to rescue them and put an end to the sinister plot. Use your unbreakable shield to battle, block, and maneuver your way on what seems like a suicide mission.
Check out the trailer for, and screens from, the iPhone and iPad versions of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty
