So for any of you who don’t know what Avengers Academy is, it’s an app where you create your own academy for teenage versions of your favorite superheroes such as Iron Man & Captain America as well as a couple of villains which includes Loki, The Enchantress and Taskmaster. The app is available on Google Play for those of you on Android devices. It is also available in the App Store for those of you on Mac devices.
Okay! So to move on to the actual review of the app, I will be reviewing the app using my own opinions on the gameplay, graphics and other aspects of the game.
Gameplay – Avengers Academy is basically a time management tycoon game, you have a list of actions that you can make your heroes (and villains) do to complete missions, missions which give you rewards that you can use towards unlocking a new hero or villain. Some of the actions however take way too long to complete in my opinion, some taking as long as 8 hours. While for many this style of gameplay in an app would get boring, I personally find it addictive so I’ll give the gameplay a 4 out of 5.
Graphics/Art – The graphics in Avengers Academy reminds me of a cartoony video game or even a comic book that was targeted towards children. I personally don’t love this kind of art but I also don’t hate it, I’ll give the graphics a 3 out of 5.
Story – The app has around three different storylines that all occur around the same time. You have a story that involves Hydra, you have a story that involves A.I.M and then you have a story around something called the Timefog. Overall I’m not that interested in the stories and it seems like the stories are just there to be there so I’ll give the stories a 2 out of 5.
Overall, I enjoy playing this game and while it may have a few bugs it seems like the developers of the game (TinyCo) are looking to improve it and make it more enjoyable so I’ll give the app a 7.5/10.
UPDATE: TinyCo has released multiple events since I have posted this review which have not accompanied updates to the main story, but they do completely take over the app while they’re around because of how difficult they are unless you spend all of your time playing it. It has become more of a job to play the game but I will keep playing because of my Marvel Addiction.
