Guardians of the Galaxy movie tie-in arrives to Android, no in-app purchases

The Guardians of the Galaxy: the Universal Weapon has now arrived to Android. Unlike most movie tie-ins, this is a premium title and does not offer in-app purchases.

What is one thing nearly every movie-tie app has in common? If you said, a freemium model littered with in-app purchases, you are correct! Thankfully this doesn’t seem to be the case with Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, a premium game that will set users back $4.99.

While the game is in fact a tie-in to the movie’s upcoming release, the story here isn’t the same as the movie. The game is essentially an action RPG that allows you to play as Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax. You can also unlock 25 additional characters, all of which can be upgraded with new talents and skills.

In total, there are 60 levels in the story mode, and there’s also an arena mode that pits you against various foes. And best of all, there are NO in-app purchases, and you don’t need to be online to play. To check out the game for yourself, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.
