Marvel Heroes Save the Mobile World with Launch of Avengers Alliance
June 14, 2013
Award-winning Facebook game Marvel: Avengers Alliance launches for the first time on iOS and soon Android, bringing missions and special agents to the mobile audience.
Today, the first social game based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero characters, Avengers Alliance, launches on, iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch® and soon AndroidTM smartphone and tablet devices! This release brings the expansive Marvel Universe and original Marvel: Avengers Alliance storyline to gamers and Super Hero fans alike via mobile screens.
Avengers Alliance features turn-based combat in a role-playing experience that features a cast of more than 40 familiar Marvel Super Heroes and 180 Super Villains. The game takes place in the wake of a galaxy-wide disaster known as “the Pulse,” which exposes Manhattan to attack from the world’s most formidable villains. Players are recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the secret peace-keeping organization of the Marvel Universe, to enlist and lead teams of Super Heroes, such as Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Spider-Man and more. Players unlock Super Hero allies and abilities, train their teams, and test their mettle against the deadliest foes the world has ever seen.
All of the epic story developments that have unfolded in Marvel: Avengers Alliance on Facebook are available for play upon its launch on mobile. Players will have no time to lose before embarking on over 60 crime-fighting missions, with additional missions and chapters to come. The world doesn’t stop growing, though, as all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents can expect ongoing updates with new missions, storylines, Super Heroes, upgraded abilities, equipment, weapons and costumes for unlock and purchase.
Today’s mobile launch of Avengers Alliance makes a secret agent out of any mobile gamer and Marvel fan, and recruits them into the most otherworldly adventure they’ve ever experienced. The world needs saving, and S.H.I.E.L.D. needs leaders, so begin your mission today!

Personal Note: I’ve been playing the Facebook version of this with my son and my cousin for about a year and we love it. – Erik Skov.

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.
