Tieing in with the launch of the movie of the same name, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is available today on Android for $4.99 from the Google Play Store. Despite the tie in, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon is an original storyline and falls into the 'action role playing game' genre.

Players will initially take on the role of Star-Lord as he rallies his rag-tag crew—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon with a quick draw and an even quicker temper; Groot, the tree-like humanoid who packs a punch; the deadly and enigmatic assassin, Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer through galactic locations and real-time strategic combat. Marvel fans will recruit and train additional heroes, engage in gesture-based team combat, and unlock each piece of the story to unveil the identity of the Guardians' shadowy nemesis.

With over 60 levels to play through, players will have no shortage of entertainment. And it looks pretty nice, too. The movie may not be out until August 1 but if it sounds like your sort of thing check out the trailer below and hit the Play Store link up top to snag yourself a copy.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy arrive on Android


So StarLord dodges enemies, slides under things, jumps over objects, turns left and right and gets powerups from the rest of the GotG as he endlessly runs after some bad guy that took the Universal Weapon, trying to get it back but never quite reaching it?


Seems to me that's what all mobile gaming heroes are doing these days.
What ever happened to running straight ahead! They only go sideways now!

heck i'm just gonna buy it as my little way of showing these companies that it's a good idea to just pump out a decent game at a reasonable price without all of those crazy IAPs.
