Marvel Kapow Offers Fruit Ninja Like Gameplay with Comic Book Twist

Fruit Ninja and Marvel comics fans will have a field day with the new iOS game Marvel Kapow.  Kapow is a Fruit Ninja inspired touch controlled game that features super villains from the Marvel universe versus pieces of flying fruit.  Gamers can use the powers of Wolverine, Spidey, Thor, Iron Man, and the Cap to take on some of the more iconic villains from the comic juggernaught’s arsenal.

Marvel Kapow HD Features Some Brilliant Comic Book Art

The gameplay consists of swiping your finger across the screen to fend off flying heads of villains from each of the heroes respective worlds.  For example, while playing with Wolverine’s claws you’ll defend against Magneto heads, and while playing as Captain America you’ll take on the Red Skull.  I have only played the free version at this point which offers 6 levels of play, but it offers a decent look at what the full package will consist of.

For $3.99 gamers can unlock the full version of the game which unlocks 26 classic play levels, 4 boss levels, arcade mode, and Game Center support.  At this time I’m content with the free version, but I’ve added the full one to my AppShopper app to monitor it for one of those holiday sale weekends where you can spend a few bucks to get a handful of high-quality titles.

Boss Battles Allow Gamers to Use any of the Superheroes

If you’re a fan of Marvel, or comic books in general, I suggest taking Marvel Kapow Free HD for a spin (or for iPhone users Marvel Kapow).  It has addicting gameplay for those times when you need something to occupy your mind before you take out your frustrations on the idiot in line in front of you.  Kapow has a beautiful color palette that will instantly transport you to the comic book world, and the iconic images from the pages of the Marvel world.  It’s not going to blow you away, but it’ll definitely be a treat for your weary eyes.  You’ve been digging all of the comic book love these days…
