Marvel Avengers Academy is a idle base building game from Tiny Co. Similar in some respects to Tiny Co's Family Guy: Quest for Stuff and EA's The Simpsons Tapped Out, Avengers Academy allows the user to take control of a school campus that hosts a variety of Marvel heroes and villains.

Gameplay

Basics

The objective of Avengers Academy is a simple progression of constructing new buildings and facilities on the player's campus. Players can gain access to new buildings once they have obtained enough experience points and credits. Both of these resources can be acquired in chests, which are earned after completing missions with the player's available heroes.

New heroes are also gated behind the cumulative experience of the player. After reaching a certain level in game, the player will be given a new set of missions within the story to "recruit" another super hero. Once the new hero sets foot on the players campus, the player is then instructed to collect four or 5 different resources to make the student join the player's academy.

As an example let's use Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America. Players not invite him until they reach level 6. After he is on campus, the player needs to collect: 35 Keepsakes, 40 Avengers Textbooks, Retrieve Cap's Shield, and 1,545 Credits. Keep in mind, that getting Cap's Shield requires using an in game item called Pym Particles that are rewarded through successful missions.

Currency

Like most free-to-play mobile games, Marvel Avengers Academy supports in app purchases with the introduction of their specialized premium currency called "Shards". This resource allow players to bypass the time limits and restrictions created within the game to restrict. Certain items, costumes and, characters are only available through this currency.

The shards in game are obtained through leveling up or by using real money. The bundles are listed in game as such:

$1.99100 Shards
$4.99260 Shards
$9.99550 Shards
$19.991,200 Shards
$49.993,200 Shards
$99.997,000 Shards

Customization Options

Marvel Avenger's Academy also features the ability to dress the players heroes and villains in various costumes and design the layout of user's campus.

Mission Structure

The mission board consists of 3-9 missions depending on the users in game level. Each individual mission can require at least 1 hero, or maximum of 3 separate tasks to complete. Each task will require a set amount time to complete. A task can be for a 1 minute duration, or in the longest cases up to 8 hours.

Typically the game will request one of four different missions. A story quest (which does not occupy a mission board slot), a heroic (whichever takes multiple hours to complete with a higher reward), a boosted mission (requires a premium character to complete a task) , and an regular mission (tasks that take only a few minutes to complete).
