We might have fond memories of hanging out in the computer lab in Junior High playing the Oregon Trail…but those have been erased now that the trailer for the Super Amazing Wagon Adventure has arrived! We only thought we had reached the heights of comedy as we named the settlers after our friends and enemies…we knew nothing of slaughtering scorpions and being devoured by giant ants back then of course.
Somehow this particular Marvel Comics Pinball FX2 table flew in low under my radar and if I hadn’t been looking over some of our readers various Pinball scores I never would have known that Captain America had been released for Xbox Live!
Zen Studios has really been doing just an amazing job with the Pinball FX2 line of tables and of the Marvel Comics pinball I think this is the best one, hands down. From Zen Studios press release:
“Set in the classic World War II environment inspired by Ed Brubaker’s Captain America 65th Anniversary Special, the table engages Cap, Bucky and members of the Howling Commandos in a full assault on Baron Zemo’s castle, where Zemo’s Death Ray and canisters of Adhesive X must be neutralized. As the game progresses, Cap will need to free his friends in the Howling Commandos and defeat several low-level missions as he works to confront the Sleeper before taking the Cosmic Cube from the Red Skull in the final battle.
The Captain America table follows richly detailed designs and offers another action-packed adventure to the critically acclaimed Marvel Pinball tables already available. For the latest Marvel Pinball news and more details on the Captain America table, visit www.marvelpinball.com.”
Does this mean we shall choose Captain America as the next Retroist Pinball Challenge…could be…stay tuned.
