I've been very lazy lately to post any updates here on my blog because of the fact that after resigning, I'm currently enjoying a lot of things that I hardly enjoy before like catching up on some TV series, movies and playing games that I missed. Not to mention the Holiday parties I'm attending these past few days that majorly eats all my time for the day. Well now I'm currently catching up on my backlogs but thanks to Marvel, I'm procrastinating again.
Marvel The Avengers Alliance is a Facebook game app based on Marvel's top brand which is The Avengers. The game has a turn-based format that enables player to create his own avatar as a SHIELD agent. Then as he progress in the game, he will be given the option to recruit more characters to expand his party.
What is good about this game is it really uses that old school RPG turn based format as oppose to some facebook RPG that are all text based. The game is more exciting and more addictive. The characters that can be recruited are not all necessarily members of The Avengers but there are also characters from some titles most specifically from X-Men.
Off course classic RPG elements is still present like egipments, skills and experience points but like all Facebook apps, the game has a limitation on usage in the form of energy points. If you run out of energy points, you practically lose the will to fight on battles forcing you to stop playing. Unless you will spend real bucks for the energy points which is extremely pricey.
So far I'm loving the app. But for me who is easily bored by repetitive gameplay, I wonder when will I lose all the interest to play it. Only time can tell. To try the game, login on your Facebook account and go here.
If you're a friend, add me as an ally :)
A fellow Marvel Alliance and FB friend pointed out that sending gifts are unlimited. Possibly a glitch or bug but it is also possible that it is intentional since they are still in Beta Testing. So to those who want to test it, do it now and stock up your avatar with items while the bug is still up.
Been disconnected to the game for almost 4 days after a maintenance. Not really sure what happened why I can't get through the game but I'm glad that I'm back. After several hours of level grinding, I got the chance to follow through with my fellow MAAers pioneers. But something is updated that I didn't like. The price for hero recruitment is revised and it went up several folds. Lucky for some of my FB friends who got the chance to play it while the prices are still down. They got the chance to recruit a lot of heroes. yep, I feel jealous. Oh well, I'll just look on the brighter side of the coin. With lesser ally heroes, I can concentrate more on maintaining them.
Marvel releases an official trailer for the game hinting for the upcoming public launch. Watch the video below.
