A conversion of the arcade game of the same name, Captain America and The Avengers is a one or two player (simultaneous) side-scrolling fighter in which four Marvel Comics licensed heroes (Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Vision) team up against the evil Red Skull.
The object of the game is to defeat The Red Skull and crush his evil schemes. Each player character has a different weapon or power that can be used throughout the game while fighting. Captain America uses his shield, Iron Man uses his repulsor rays, Vision uses his solar beam and Hawkeye uses his bow and arrows.
The game has five stages. The other supervillians in this game are Klaw, The Living Laser, Whirlwind, The Grim Reaper, The Wizard, The Controllers, The Mandarin, The Juggernaut from X-MEN , Ultron and Crossbones. The game ends when the fifth and final stage has been completed.
There are also additional superheroes such as Quicksilver, The Sub-Mariner, Wonder Man, and The Wasp that will appear in certain parts of the game to assist the player characters.
