Captain America and the Avengers Video Game by Data East


I got to play this game in a real arcade this weekend and even though the screen was a little weak, the game really holds up. C’mon, what other game is going to let you play Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye or the Vision. The Vision!

The game was released in 1991 in the arcades and had many ports (my fave was for the Genesis). It was released on the NES the same year, next year the Genesis version came out. In 1993 they released it on the SNES and Game Gear and finally delivered a Game Boy version in 1994. This game has gotten around.

Check out this gameplay from the arcade version.
