Smith & Tinker, the Seattle-based mobile game company, and Marvel Entertainment have released "Marvel KAPOW!," a casual action-game now available worldwide on the Apple App Store. Built specifically for touch-based mobile devices, the game puts the power of Marvel’s greatest super heroes at your fingertips.
Players can slash with Wolverine's claws, rebound blasts with Captain America's mighty shield, capture with Spider-Man's web and smite with Thor's hammer as they vanquish an onslaught of cyber-bots based on Marvel's greatest super villains. "Marvel KAPOW!" features 23 classic play levels, three boss levels, arcade mode, Game Center leader-board integration, plus continuous support and free content updates including the release of new hero powers and villain bots later this year.
"Marvel is thrilled to work with Smith & Tinker to offer this casual mobile game that includes some of our most beloved super heroes and villains," said TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production, Marvel Entertainment.
