The New 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Game Stays True To The Comic Book Universe

You may remember an X-Men film from last year with the same name as this game, and they do tell the same basic story. The difference, however, is the game is true to the 1981 comic book story line and the movie is... well, not. X-Men: Days of Future Past is also a regular paid game with no in-app purchases.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe In Peril Comes To Android's Aid, Charges $4.99

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril, a game that found its way to consoles in 2013 and other mobile platforms in 2014, has now fought its way into the Play Store. This port has managed to come in before LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, an older title that briefly appeared on the Amazon Appstore and never found its way onto Google Play.

Unlike that relatively faithful port, Universe in Peril is not a copy of the version that originally graced consoles.

Marvel Contest Of Champions Mixes An Interesting 2D Battle System With The Same Old Free-To-Play Grind

There's a new 2D fighter available for Android, and it stars iconic Marvel characters! Now settle down, it's not Marvel Versus Capcom. Nope, this is a new property licensed by Marvel and developed by Kabam, which specializes in that sort of thing. Formerly a browser game, Contest of Champions has an impressive setup for a mobile fighter, with tap and swipe-based gameplay replacing the somewhat impractical on-screen buttons. But once you master the innovative controls, you'll find yourself in familiar freemium territory.

Disney Movies Anywhere Brings Digital Copies Of Frozen (And Maybe Some Other Movies Too) To Your Phone Or Tablet

Everyone wants a piece of the digital streaming pie these days, and some companies seem to be a little too quick on the proprietary trigger. But Disney's solution, which often lets consumers pick between iTunes, Google Play, and their own Disney Movies Anywhere platform when redeeming digital copies, seems to be a pretty good one. Now the official Android app has arrived for easy integration on phones and tablets.

[Ooga Chaka] Marvel Releases A Guardians Of The Galaxy Action-RPG With No IAPs: You're Welcome

Raise your hands if you're excited about Guardians of the Galaxy. Now put them back down, because this is a text-based news story and I can't see you. As usual before a big summer movie, Marvel has released a new mobile game to get fans excited for the upcoming release. But what I'm really excited about is the fact that Marvel published the game itself (instead of outsourcing it to Gameloft) without the usual free-to-play trappings.

The latest Captain America movie is polishing its shield, because its release is inbound. But before that can happen, movie goers first need a chance to experience the action firsthand in yet another Gameloft title. Most of these releases aren't anything to get excited about, but the cel-shaded graphics in this one have piqued our interest. Check them out.

[New Game] Marvel Run Jump Smash Is The Best Superhero Bobblehead Game You'll See Today

Marvel continues its onslaught of games in the Play Store, and this time they've decided to take the well-trodden road marked "endless runner." Marvel Run Jump Smash is pretty typical of the genre, and at first it looks like a carbon copy of Jetpack Joyride. But there's a surprising amount of depth beneath that cutesy exterior, and the 2D art might be enough for the one dollar entry fee alone.

You start off as a basic SHIELD agent, either Nick Fury or Maria Hill, running and jumping through a fairly typical sprite environment.

[New Game] Marvel's Avengers Alliance Jumps From Facebook To Android Bringing Turn-Based Combat And In-App Purchases

Do you dream of leading Earth's Mightiest Heroes into battle... in the fashion of a 1992 JRPG? The Marvel's Avengers Alliance is for you. This game got its start on Facebook before jumping to iOS, and now it's here to grab a few Android users before they go back to re-watching the Captain America DVD.

The game is a lot like Marvel's War Of Heroes, except with a more story-focused campaign and no collectible card game pretense.

Gameloft's Official Game For Thor: The Dark World Teased, Looks Like A Marvel Version Of Diablo

Marvel's march towards complete domination of superhero cinema continues: the second Thor movie (and the second Marvel movie this year) is scheduled to hit theaters in November. Gameloft continues its partnership with Marvel, and the publisher has just posted a teaser trailer for the mobile tie-in to Thor: The Dark World. And it actually looks pretty OK - Thor's doing his thing, kicking some Asgard in an isometric top-down dungeon crawler.
