Captain America and the Avengers is a side-scrolling, hand-to-hand combat game. Choose one of four characters to battle the Red Skull and his evil army: Captain America, Vision, Iron Man, or Hawkeye. Each character has special weaponry and special abilities.
Characters in Captain America and the Avengers can pick up objects like tires, rocks, barrels, and cars to use against enemies. As with most combat-style games, certain enemies are more difficult to defeat than others.
Between levels, there are flying stages where the characters take to the air to fight enemies. The flying stages require the heroes to destroy ships and flying enemies to advance to the next ground stage.
Each character in Captain America and the Avengers possesses unique abilities. Captain America throws his titanium shield to destroy enemies. Vision uses his mind blast. Hawkeye shoots arrows with his bow, and Iron Man uses his special armor's pulse cannons to do battle. Each character is also capable of a jumping attack. With these special attacks, the character jumps into air, hovers there for a moment, and then fires his weapon against enemies at ground level.
The ultimate goal of Captain America and the Avengers is to reach the Red Skull's island and defeat him before he can conquer the Earth. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
