Marvel Infinity War is a feature packed old school side scrolling beat ‘em up that features a truly massive roster of characters from the Marvel universe.
A remarkable OpenBOR based fan made project, Marvel Infinity War offers a beat ‘em up experience of epic proportions, with 76 playable characters, 39 support characters, 5 special support characters and 9 extra NPC’s. Pretty much everyone who’s ever been in a Marvel comic is there, including The Avengers, The Defenders, The Guardians of the Galaxy, The X-men, The Fantastic Four, as well as lesser known fan favorites like Carnage, She Hulk and Squirrel Girl.
The main game mode of Marvel Infinity War allows you to choose between five destinations, each of which gives you access to a differently themed cast of characters to choose from. The levels are varied and challenging, giving you just five lives to complete them and offering up a wide variety of baddies to beat up. Thankfully you’re not stuck with the same character all the way through either – you can switch them between stages so you get to experience more of that mouth watering roster. Some characters can even switch to alternate versions mid-fight such as Iron Man’s ability to switch to the Hulkbuster suit.
The main game mode features a lot of content, but there are also a massive amount of extra campaigns and game modes to play through – including a strange Megaman style action platformer starring Deadpool! It really does offer the most comprehensive Marvel gaming experience we’ve ever witnessed. A fan service-filled fighter jam-packed full of content and old school arcade fun.
