Hands-on with Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, the free-to-play RPG-lite arena battler

By , on July 10, 2014

Here's a curiosity for all you Marvel fans: Guardians of the Galaxy is getting an iOS game all of its own. Who would have seen that coming a few years ago, eh?

What with the new movie on the horizon - which looks ace, by the way - it's been seen by the bigwigs at Marvel and Disney that it's only right for smartphones to get a tie-in. The game - named Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon - isn't out at the moment, at least not globally, but it has been soft-launched on iOS in Malaysia's App Store.

It's an arena battle game in which you control a team of heroes and must fight wave after wave of bad guys, and then level up your heroes and kit them out with new gear.

Here's my early impressions of the game...

I wouldn't have made a GOG game like this, but I think it is a good formula and looks like it works well. I really like the comic book cutscenes. Excited to give it a try. Reminds me of Battleheart, which worked well.
