To celebrate the release of
Sex on a Stick: The First Avenger Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel has released a fun little flash game called Captain America: Shield of Justice. The game is not unlike Thor: Bring the Thunder, which Super Swede reviewed back in May; in fact, it's basically the same game with Thor sprites replaced with Cap sprites. This is fine with me, though, because it's a cute, fun little game. Captain America is on a generic mission to take down Hydra, and he does so using his shield with three different types of moves: melee, long-range and a special power-up move. The whole campaign can be played in about 30 minutes, which is appropriate for a Flash game. The levels are divided into three sub-levels, with the third concluding with a boss battle. It's fun, mindless and wisely gives the player unlimited lives and mid-level checkpoints. The game is nothing special, but it doesn't have to be.
Personally, I'm looking forward to the film and will gladly gobble up any fun stuff to hype me up. I mean, who isn't looking forward to watching a sweaty, beefy Chris Evans kicking ass and taking names?
