Lego Marvel Super Heroes demo now available to download

Remember demos? They were totally a thing once, before the lizard-people that control the games industry conspiracied them out of existence. Thankfully TT Games, among others, have kept the fire alive - their latest demonstration version offering a chunk of the biff-happy Lego Marvel Super Heroes. The demo contains one level, giving you the chance to step into ripped trousers of The Hulk, and the sweaty, sweaty super-suit of Iron Man.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is out 15th November, so you have a few weeks left to brush up on your Marvel heroes and villains before smashing your way around a sandboxy version of Manhattan for yourself. TT Games have already done DC Comics with Lego Batman 2, so what's next for the Lego geniuses? 2000 AD, hopefully.

If you can't imagine what a Lego Marvel game would look like, it sounds like your imagination chip is failing. Here, have a trailer:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
