Haaaaaaave you heard about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY yet? If not, you’ve been living under a rock and not paying enough attention to ComicUI. We’re excited for the movie to release at the end of this month and now they have a new game released for iOS to help you get excited too.

The game is called Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon and can be picked up on the iTunes store for $4.99. Now, I understand that is a steep price for a game but it seems to be chock full of characters from the Marvel cosmic universe, including ones in the upcoming film. Who doesn’t want to shoot bad guys as Rocket and then beat them up with Groot? Exactly. The title also stems from Ronan, the accuser’s hammer, the Universal Weapon. This may give away some plot details for the upcoming film, or could be generated specifically for the game, we’re not sure.

As a bonus, there are NO in-app purchases and an internet connection is not required. This may help justify the price point, rather than having to chuck more dollar bills at the game to progress.

I’m currently playing the game today and will come back with more details as they arise. Until then, enjoy the screenshots and pickup GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: THE UNIVERSAL WEAPON today.
