The Guardians of the Galaxy mobile game was recently released with "The Universal Weapon."
I managed to take the App (priced at $4.99) for a spin and found it to be rather entertaining.
The game starts off with the Guardians as prisoners on the Kyln, with Cosmo helping them escape (movie spoiler, maybe?).
As you progress through the game and gain experience, you can unlock more Marvel characters that are playable.
It's an easy enough game to play: You drag a line from your character to the enemies to perform actions and gain power-ups along the way. Usually after each level, there is a story-mode in the form of a comic strip, and sometimes "Hooked On A Feeling" plays after finishing a level.
Below you can check out the full list of unlockable characters via the screenshots where I was happy to find Mantis, Beta Ray Bill, the Planet Hulk characters, as well as Hulk himself, some of the original Guardians of the Galaxy characters and even Wraith from Annihilation: Conquest.
If you have been a fan of this site for a while, you probably won't be surprised that I wasn't too happy to see Fake Phyla, the Quasar replacement (good news is the real Quasar, Wendell Vaughn, is back).
I also don't see Richard Rider Nova who actually was Marvel's choice to spearhead the Marvel Cosmic universe the movie is inspired by.
We also see Angela shoehorned in their as well.
We do see that two characters are coming soon; so hopefully Richard Rider Nova will be one.
All-in-all the game is pretty fun.
