If you're a fan, or just always looking for something fun and new for your Android device, Disney Mobile and Marvel Entertainment have dropped two Captain America apps for Android in the Market this past weekend.  First up is the Captain America live wallpaper, which features the familiar shield across your homescreen, and a quick tap sends a barrage of bullets to bounce and ricochet.  It should run well on any phone sporting Android 2.1 or higher that supports live wallpapers, and it's free.

If you're looking for something with a bit more action, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty is an HD action game for the Android platform, featuring 24 levels, stunning graphics, and an original storyline from Marvel writer Christos Gage and comic panels by Marvel artists Ron Lim and Christopher Sotomayor.  Battle Red Skull and the evil HYDRA soldiers with combo moves and stealth to save America and rescue your friends.  Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty runs on Android 2.2 or higher, on select Android devices.  It checks in at $0.99 in the Android Market.

  • Hmmm, the game might be my first paid app. I think I'll check it out. Definitely looks like it's worth $0.99.
  • Bought it last night. It's ok. Smooth graphics but somewhat limited controls. Somewhat repetitive. It's more like playing a Super Mario side scroll-er (with a shield).
  • Just downloaded and played it for a few minutes on my Xoom. Fun game, definitely a good buy for .99. Game play is easy to pick up, nice graphics, now if only other big names like EA sports would start making some Football/Golf games I'd be all set.
  • dyastrabI, you just sold me on the game by comparing it to a mario side-scroller!
  • It's amazing how many apps are NOT available for the droid x2...
  • "apps not available for the droid x2" ??? Android apps will not run on the Droid X2 ???
  • Hopefully this means a marvel comics app is on the way soon.
  • Sorry for the newbie question: Does this run on tablet's too? Looking into a tablet.
  • Would like to buy it on my SGT 7, but it's not compatible. WTF!!! I love how it says that it's compatible with Android 2.1 and up, but I can't purchase it on my SGT 7 running Android 2.2. With crap like this, I should have bought an iPad...
  • This app is meh... the gameplay works, but the menu's dont. I can't select any stage but the first six. You can't click the tabs at the top (i'm on like stage 15) and then if i click a number from 1-6, it goes to the bomber tab and locks up. Nothing responds after that.
    Sorry Marvel, but your app needs work.
    "Tested on Atrix 4G" my ass. Obviously you didn't try on any qHD phones.
  • According to the podcast App Judgement, this game costs a whopping $5 on iOS.
  • Can I download this when I'm on 3G? What's the size of the content?
  • Says not compatible with my Acer A500, but it is on other tablets? WTF Disney/Marvel?? EDIT: It won't show up in the Market for my Acer, so I installed it on the Evo 4G, backed up using Titanium Backup and restored on the tablet. It works great!
