According to reviews on the App store this is like a bad version of Mirrors Edge. From the write up and screenshots I have no idea how that works. But since multiple people have said it, it's either true or a group of friends have a few minutes to kill.

I thought I'd try it at 99cents. Deleted after about 30 minutes of play.

Gameplay is pretty mediocre and boring. Gameplay is like a copy cat of Mirrors Edge, but it just doesn't have the good level designs and good action of ME. There's not very much challenge to it, and the enemies feels like objects in your way you can easily overcome...it's not fun or exciting like it is in ME.

I can't imagine many gamers really liking this one very much, even Captain American fans. At 99cents...I don't think it's even worth a purchase.

So it really is like Mirrors Edge, huh?

Never saw that gameplay fitting for a Cap. America game...

Although this does make me really wanna buy ME, haha.

Looks pretty good. The post is from about an hour ago; however, when I click the applink, the game is still priced at $5. Any time frame when to expect the price drop?

According to appshopper it was only on sale for a few hours. Sorry about that.

The game model wouldn't be bad if they just paid more attention to the source material. As stated, the level design isn't as good as ME and the controls aren't as great either. ME allows one to transition from a slide to running by swiping up--in this game it causes him to jump. Fighting enemies is a process of tapping a virtual button then swiping multiple times, which breaks up the action rather than enhancing it.

I don't think it's a bad game for $1, but I couldn't recommend anybody pay $5 considering how far that can go on the app store.
