As promised last month, Gameloft has released its highly anticipated title ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ for iOS. The game is a tie-in to the upcoming Marvel movie of the same name, and is now available for download on your iPhone or iPad.

Here’s a little bit of background on the game’s storyline:

Play as Captain America and lead your S.H.I.E.L.D. Strike Team as they struggle to contain a massive global attack by several nefarious criminal organizations. Stop the attacks and then take the battle to your enemies.

Captain America must use all his tactical skill as he commands his Strike Team to combat threats on every front. Grow your agents into a potent fighting force, and when the odds are against you, call in Black Widow and Falcon to help turn the tide.

And here’s a list of the game’s more notable features:

  • Make clever use of your indestructible shield and skills as a Super-Soldier and an Avenger
  • Face off against iconic villains such as King Cobra, Taskmaster, Puff Adder, the Winter Soldier and more
  • Art and graphics inspired directly by the comics
  • Asynchronous multiplayer: Join a Clan and battle rival players!
  • Climb the league leaderboards
  • Earn cool rewards in Limited-Time Events
  • Enhance your agents and weapons for optimal performance in the field
  • Learn new fighting techniques to supercharge Cap’s attacks
  • Unlock and upgrade Captain America’s suits

While Gameloft has a hit-and-miss track record with its movie spin-offs, this one looks like it might be worth checking out—particularly for those that are fans of the franchise. Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters in the US on April 4th.

As for the game, it’s available in the App Store for $2.99. Note: it looks like the game requires iOS 7 or higher.
