It's been a couple months in coming, but the first in an episodic series of Avengers games is live on the Play Store now. In case you've forgotten, this edition features the Hulk, leading the effort to round up a number of supervillains that escaped during a breakout of The Vault. To celebrate the launch, Marvel and NVIDIA are offering the game for a special promo price of $4.99 (normally $6.99).

Owners of Tegra 3 devices will notice some extra effects and battle damage, but the chipset is not strictly required. However, there is a pretty sparse collection of supported devices. Here's the full list:

Keep an eye out for our review of the game coming in the near future. In the meantime, you can try it out for yourself right now. As of this writing, the $7 price still seems to be up on the Play Store, so if you're not seeing the promo sale, we'd recommend holding off until it drops. Update: The promo price is now live! Refresh if you don't see it.

On the subject of the delay, Disney had this to say on why it took so long to release the Android version:

"With all the devices we just wanted to make sure the game was as optimized and compatible with as large a set as we possibly could."

So, there you have it. Pretty typical response from the game developer, but it's an empty point now. It's out, so let's make with the smashing already!

    Nexus 10 also...

    $6.99 currently in the US for me, also, looks like it's compatible with my Nexus 10. Well, it doesn't display the "not compatible with your device" text for my Nexus 10.

      How do you like your N10? Have you used an N7? Is the form factor better/worse? Thanks.

      • http://www.binarytuberculosis.com BinaryTB

        Haven't used an N7, but coming over from an iPad3. So far I love the N10 more for regular usage (plus being able to use the same apps I already bought for my Galaxy Nexus). Two things I don't like about the N10:

        1. No smart cover, no good covers/sleeves/cases at all right now actually.
        2. Not as many board/card games for Android as there are on iOS, slowly changing, but still annoying.

        Way too many other pluses kind of offset the previous 2 issues though, so still happy. Will probably keep my iPad3 around for gaming though.

        The form factor is good too, I've noticed I use my iPad in portrait without realizing and my N10 in landscape, which makes sense due to screen size and how the apps orient themselves (e.g. Plume on N10 in landscape is perfect).

        • Greyhame

          Thanks for the feedback!

  • Joe DiPrimeo

    Looks to be nexus 4 compatible.

  • Cebastian Rosing

    woah.. I might just.. But I've already bought quite a few games this month o.O

  • Robert Geistlinger

    Seeing the 6.99 price and oddly it shows compatible with my MyTouch4G, but not my TF300 in Play.

  • Julio Melendez

    Shows compatible with my Nexus 4 also

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    The price has been updated to $4.99. You may not see it right away but if you click Buy, you'll see it there correctly.

  • defred34

    Runs with lots of stutters. Tepid progress....am bored and regret my purchase already!

  • EightRooks

    It runs on the Nexus 10, but it struggles. Either it's not optimised for that big a resolution or the GPU simply isn't up to it. It's playable, and the crispness is certainly neat, plus some of the textures look very good at that resolution too - but 60 FPS this ain't.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      On a display this hi-res, I'm not surprised.

  • http://www.facebook.com/duartomas Tomas Duarte

    It says that will work for Moto Atrix 4G. But only for ICS. emmmm we don´t have ICS official yet and its not spected to have ICS....

  • epitomia

    Oddly enough, I have a Tab 7.7, yet it's showing as incompatible...

  • http://twitter.com/add119 adam

    It doesn't work on droid 3,bionic wow smh ! this lack of support after I fb them in sept will turn some customer to ios for iphone or ipod touch

  • http://www.facebook.com/roman3d Román Rodríguez

    Looking good... Unfortunately, I don't own any of the devices listed up there. I have a WT19i and I don't think it would support this game. :(

  • wewewi

    Lets give it a shot.. looks nice.. and I kinda like the exclusivity =)

    (Got a Tegra3 OneX and a Tegra2 GalaxyTab10.1 so.. )

    BTW: Most expensive game I ever bought on the Play Store! (Previous was 3$ Bards Tale)

  • John O’Connor

    damn, limited device support. doesn't even work for ny note 10.1 and also throws my transformer 300 out of the running as well. Would be great if this worked on the Nabi for my nephew, I'm certainly not letting him play with any of my phones

  • EightRooks

    Aaand pulled for the Nexus 10. Awesome! Yet another "this game is incompatible with your device" because incompetent publishers can't upload to the Play store properly. It's not 'incompatible': it's right there, see? I can run it! Not like I need the money back, but users of any device shouldn't have to be thinking "Oh, look, that game I really want is out... but I'd better wait another 24 hours at least before I buy it, to see if this was a mistake". Rockstar did this exact same thing with GTA III and that was nearly a year ago now. Nice to see the games industry learns from its mistakes, eh?
