Captain America Gets Pixelated to Save the World

on July 8, 2011 4:00 PM

As we approach the release of another Marvel movie and tie-in game with Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: Super Soldier respectively, Marvel has kicked the hype engine in full motion. This extends beyond the trailers, TV spots and slushees however and into the digital realm with another 16-bit game similar to the Thor game earlier this year.

In Captain America: Shield of Justice you’ll navigate a pixelated Steve Rogers against the obnoxiously cute Red Skull in a 16 bit adventure, right on your PC. The gameplay itself is very similar to the Thor game, but also like that game it’s fun enough and a decent way to kill an afternoon. Check out some screenshots after the break, or just go play the damn thing!
