Last week, Disney and Marvel soft-launched a spinoff mobile game for the upcoming movie Guardians of the Galaxy, and as of today that game, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon [appprice url=""https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/guardians-galaxy-universal/id834485417?mt=8"] is now available worldwide. Following an original story inspired by the film and comic series, The Universal Weapon features gameplay similar to the original Battleheart which sees you controlling a party of characters and line-drawing to combat enemies in real-time. In addition to the five main characters from the film, there are 20 more Guardians of the Galaxy characters to unlock and play with through both single-player Story campaign and an Arena mode.
One other thing worth mentioning about Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon is that it's a premium game, selling for $4.99 with no in-app purchases. It also doesn't require any sort of constant internet connection to play, though it does utilize a connection for things like Game Center. It's a bold move for a movie tie-in game like this, which could very easily have been free to play, so hopefully the game is well-recieved. The one negative so far seems to be the actual size of the app. It's roughly a 70 mb download initially, but upon launching will download additional assets and balloons to nearly a gig, so be prepared for that.
