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 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.
