Thanks for the gameplay video, Sanuku ! One quick question, though: does the game require a constant online connection? The description of the app didn't mention it, but that "Connecting to Server" bit at the start of the video filled me with trepidation...

Sadly (?), the old Battleheart still outpolishes this in every way.

Playing now: World of Tanks, Boom Beach, SimCity BuildIt and Duolingo (come on, it's fun!)

The original was so buggy and crashy that it was barely playable for most of its early shelf life. You can say a lot of good things about that game, but not polish.

Playdom did a great and profitable job with the F2P online only Avengers Alliance because the IAP is really optional. Since this is possibly offline, how much does it cost? And do the IAPs feel optional?

Out now on Android. Apparently it's a premium app with no IAPs or Constant Connection requirements (the app description points that out proeminently), which are great news in my book!

UPDATE: Available on the AppStore too! Check it out if you're interested (I'll be waiting for the movie to come out before getting this).

Read about it, found it on the App Store, saw it was premium with no IAP, and bought it right away! Seems pretty fun and I'm super happy it's an off-line premium game I can play anytime! Thanks, Marvel!

HOWEVER, one downside... Even though it's only a 65mb download, once you open it the app downloads more. Now it's full installed size is over 800mb! Why?!? Loses one star for that.

EDIT: Scratch that. After some playing, it has bloated to 950MB! Hope it stops growing soon.
