Avengers Initiative​ $4.99 > $0.99!



EDIT: Dangit, just realized I accidentally typed $4.99 in the thread title instead of $6.99... >_> my bad... well, the point is that it's now $0.99!!!

Never played it myself, but from what I've seen in videos, yes it does play like IB.

Reviews mention the heavy handing IAP to unlock simple stuff like other costumes... and that the levels are laid out so one defeat means you start all over (which sounds like an infinite runner to me in a way).

I have sort of wanted this but I think I'm going to pass even at $0.99.

Yup it is IB, with even the same menu button. But it has the Hulk charm in it, and there are skills and finishers included in this one that can make it a decent clone.

Recommended for a buck. It isnt IB, but it's still pretty good.

I think so... If I'm correct I think Captain America was supposed to be next.

People are just used to seeing IAP and assuming a simple grind wont cut, but i finished the game without IAPs and managed to nab a couple costumes after 3 playthroughs.

I got to Lv200+ in IB2 and that took me a while to grind. They are both RPGs, and the grinding is acceptable.

Cap Am's next, but we dont know if it's going to be an update, or a separate app.

The final screenshot of this app says more content is coming soon. To me this implies it will be an update; however long overdue. Fingers crossed we won't have to retain multiple 1GB apps to try out different characters.
