As soon as you start chucking your quarters into the thing, you immediately notice how loud and nerdy the whole thing is. "THE AVENGERS!" is screamed at you. You then pick between your four favorite heores. The Vision: An albino cyborg-android guy with a jewel in his forhead. Iron Man: Everyone's favorite millionaire alcoholic. Captain America: The star-spangled old man who never shuts up about his old war stories. And Hawkeye: A big purple jerk with a bow and arrow.
And as soon as your hero is chosen, he screams "Okay GO!" with as much enthusiasm as a sophmore cheerleader. Then your off. Off running to the right, fighting as many super colorful bad guys as you can. There are tons of underpaid jerk henchmen in high teck garb to fight. And you can beat them up in a variety of ways. Punch them, pick them up and throw them, shoot them, throw a barrel at them, throw a wrench at them, throw a rock at them....or my personal favorite..throw a soda can at them....(I'm NOT kidding.)....a criminals only weakness. Carbonation.
You meet an entire horde of classic bad guys from the comics. Every loser in pajamas from the Juggernaut to Whirlwind makes an appearance. You fight your way through hysterically named robots. Including a mechanized octopus-like vehicle...which is apparently called a Mech Taco. I can't make this stuff up!!
Your ultimate goal is to find the mastermind behind all this nastiness. The guy with the gross head....Rocky Dennis...I mean....The Red Skull. He apparently has a laser gun mounted on the moon, and the Avengers don't take kindly to putting crap on the moon. So you go up there and beat the crap out of a few guys and save the day. It's your typical situation. It's a beat-em up, side scroller, button masher. But it's fun and colorful and exciting and hilarious when you die because you "can't....move!!"
So if you want a quick game of people in long underwear beating up on anything that moves, added with a liberal dash of hilarity for all the wrong reasons, then give the game a go. Then start thrusting your hand in the air with a cheesy grin and scream some kind of battle cry.
"EAT MY SODA CAN!" always works for me.
