Avengers Alliance Facebook Game Launches

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

If you're looking for another online distraction that could further fuel your love of comic books then the all-new Marvel: Avengers Alliance Facebook game might be just what the doctor ordered. We previously reported on the game when we got our first look at what it had to offer, but now the game is available to the public. That's right! No more waiting to create a team of your favorite Avengers to play alongside your customizable Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., now you can actually play with your friends.

If you haven't yet checked out the game and all it has to offer, then take a look at the behind-the-scenes trailer from Playdom for the game which features a little bit of the creative process as well as some actual game-play footage. Be sure to check out images from the game itself. If you are interested in the game, you can play on Facebook for free by checking out and becoming a fan of the Marvel: Avengers Alliance Facebook page. What do you think of the game? Have you tried playing it yet?

I really though this game sounded really fun, but after looking at the screen shots, it wasn't what I was expecting. I wonder if it's any good?

Been playing it for a while Just look for AGENT MANCHINE. Its only been available a couple of days.

#13 Posted by Andy Steven Summers (4987 posts) - - Show Bio

Meh

Wish there was more customization for 'our' Agent. In fact I wish we could of just built our own super hero instead.

Looks really generic

I'm feeling this game. I like it.

#18 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I stopped playing. It keeps telling me I need more energy, and I don't have the gold to buy it. I don't want to be that guy who keeps requesting my friends for it either.

Also, it takes a really long time to level up. Been playing for over an hour and Black Widow's still on level 1.

It sounds ideal. I wouldn't expect anything superior, it is an online app after all. I won't be playing it. Aside from Facebook being a check-in-and-out email now, I avoid any part of the screen other than my messages due to their love of posting pictures of babies muted by the drug Paxil. I would say Eric Schmidt should be the final boss, but I remembered that Facebook already pretty much beat that foe, so it wouldn't really fit.

I've been playing this for over a week..

anyway, it's alright for killing time. It's pretty laggy and buggy on occasion.

i've been playing this game and it really takes time to earn A points to get a new character. I really think you need to buy gold if you wanna be able to play your favorite characters and get to the next stage.

I'll play it when bored on facebook

That's a pitty. Looks like I won't be playing any more...

@Cafeterialoca: everyone is a avenger now

#26 Posted by GothamBat (644 posts) - - Show Bio

It's not great, but for a facebook game, it's probably one I will play for awhile. Though, the constant need for energy and whatnot is a drawback. I'll keep playing for now.

#27 Edited by zmanm407 (135 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't do ANYTHING at this point in the game!

Not enough energy, not enough command points, not enough SHIELD points, not enough gold

Buy more?

No I will not pay $100 for 500 pieces of gold that I don't even believe could buy me every character for my team.. It certainly wouldn't be capable of doing that, conducting my research, buying crew for my jets, buying updated weapons and suits or buying me enough energy to go run through my missions a second time!

I was really hoping I could enjoy this game for free, and at first it seemed I could but I haven't even completed Chapter 1 and I feel constricted for the need of gold.

I must say, the bits that I played before I felt limited by that were pretty awesome, though.

That would be something like Champions or City of Heroes both free. This is a app game very very limited.

I play all day

Does it make me want to get on to facebook more? not really?

#36 Posted by Andy Steven Summers (4987 posts) - - Show Bio

@Manchine: I know exactly what those two MMO's are, and I know exactly what App games are capable of. It's not they it can't, or could not of been done. It's that they chose not to.

Yea, what I did to avoid that was I made one dummy account, so that if I REALLY need the avenger credit things I can gift them. They should be easier to acquire. But keep in mind the more bettles you do the more stuff enemies drop during the fights you can pick up. And if ou have facebook allies you can 'visit' their area of town and get stuff once a day. Also on the bottom where you see your allies, there should be 'Tony Stark' click him, 'visit' Stark Tower, and then get money/energy tokens/aveneger point things and a distress call.

thought I'd throw in the advice I have to give :p

Overall, I'm rather liking this game, even if it's slower to progress through than I'd like. But, that's how most social games tend to be, especially when they're nominally free.

Still, they've done a good job capturing the strategy-superhero RPG vibe. I'll probably be playing this for a while... :)
