REVIEW: THE LEAGUE OF SUPERHERO GAMES BY SCHOLASTIC

Books are something I rarely cover or review, but like in the case of WRONG! Retro Games, You Messed Up Our Comic Book Heroes! by Chris Baker, I make the exception when a book addresses what is covered on this site: Video games based on comic book properties. I was made aware of the existence of a…

MARVEL: AVENGERS ALLIANCE AND ITS SEQUEL TO CLOSE AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER

Back in early 2012 when I started Comic Gamers Assemble, one of the games I was reporting on was the progenitor free-to-play Marvel title, Marvel: Avengers Alliance that initially launched on Facebook but has since been ported to mobile devices and even received a sequel this year, Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2. Avengers Alliance was the first in the string of free-to-play…

FACEBOOK/MOBILE GAME GETS SEQUEL IN MARVEL: AVENGERS ALLIANCE 2

Back when it was released on Facebook back in 2012, Marvel: Avengers Alliance was the first game that would transition Marvel’s interactive division from a company who released traditional games on consoles and handhelds to one who more or less solely focused on mobile and free-to-play offerings. Now close to four years later, the game that started…

MARVEL’S AVENGERS ACADEMY CHARACTER TRAILER

The Clone High meets Marvel mobile title Avengers Academy, scheduled to arrive in early 2016 from TinyCo, just received a new trailer that still doesn’t show exactly how the game looks like when played, but provides a glimpse of some of the reimagined Marvel cast including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Loki, Hulk and Black Widow. While not shown…

MARVEL ADDS NETFLIX STARS DAREDEVIL AND JESSICA JONES TO MOBILE GAMES

Never one to not promote their movie and TV business in their mobile games, the main protagonists from Marvel’s 2015 Netflix series, Daredevil and Jessica Jones, will be coming to both Marvel Contest of Champions and Marvel Future Fight. A six part story quest will arrive in Contest of Champions this month that not only will add the two characters,…

NEW MARVEL MOBILE GAME AVENGERS ACADEMY TAKES YOU TO SCHOOL IN 2016

Despite what your feelings on Marvel’s mobile video game portfolio, personally I wish they would make traditional games like WB Games does with their Arkham franchise, you can’t deny that their offerings have not been diverse: There’s a puzzle/RPG hybrid in Marvel Puzzle Quest; A fighting game in Marvel Contest of Champions and an action-RPG in Marvel Future Fight among many others. Now…

THE MARVEL PUZZLE QUEST ON CONSOLES CONUNDRUM

Fall is the time of year when people throw down big dollars and all the AAA releases that publishers flood onto the market, your Call of Duty’s, Assassin’s Creed, Halo’s, etc, however for me this past weekend, the game I couldn’t take myself away from was Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign on my PS4. It’s an incredibly simple, yet…

ALL NEW SPIDER-MAN AND SPIDER-MAN 2099 COMING TO SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED

Say what you will about Marvel’s reliance on mobile games being less compelling than say, the brilliant Batman: Arkham Knight, but their ability to update their current slate of games to what’s going on in the world of comics is pretty amazing. Case in point, today it was announced that the new Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099…

ANT-MAN CONTENT COMING TO MAJOR MARVEL FREE-TO-PLAY PLATFORMS

It looks like Zen Pinball isn’t the only platform that’s getting some Ant-Man love this July. Much like Marvel’s Age of Ultron before it, Ant-Man themed content is heading to Marvel’s catalogue of free-to-play and mobile titles starting July 9th. Look for the small hero in Marvel: Future Fight, Marvel Heroes 2015, Marvel: Contest of Champions, Marvel: Avengers Alliance as well as Marvel: Puzzle…
