Super 16-bit gaming: ‘Captain America: Shield of Justice’

Marvel has gone 16-bit with their latest online game that puts you in the shoes of Captain America as he takes on Red Skull and his evil cohorts in a side-scrolling arcade-style adventure.

Battling the forces of Hydra, Captain America: Shield of Justice looks like it was plucked right from the early days of console gaming, and the retro sound effects and music are way too perfect for this easily addictive game.

Since I’m also addicted to tower defense games, I’d be remiss if I didn’t suggest one of Marvel’s other hot games: Star Tower Defense which features Iron Man and four other Marvel heroes against Moleman, Modok, and Dr. Doom.
