Are you a fan of Captain America or superheroes in general? If so you're in luck as Marvel Entertainment has released a Captain America game. The name of this game is Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty and it has been released as a universal app. It's a 3D action game with beat-em-up style of gameplay. You will be using various combos and special attacks to take down enemies. The famed Captain America shield, for instance, can be used for up close and personal strikes or launched from afar. Additional action that the game offers includes the ability to execute wall runs and slide under traps. The story revolves around Captain America stopping his arch rival Red Skull from gaining more strength and tipping the balance of power. Captain America has to rescue some captured friends in the process. The game is set during World War II. "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," the app description states. There are 24 levels to play in the game with multiple pathways and secrets. The game's story was written by Marvel writer Christos Gage. Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty is currently available on the App Store as a universal app for $4.99.
