The movie ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ can be considered as a success at the box office. It has gained enough following that obviously made its producer agree to create a mobile game out of it. Thus, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ mobile game is now available for iOS and Android devices.
Most analysts think that mobile-game tie-ins for motion pictures usually end up terribly. That is because most of the gamers complain about the in-app purchases that are forced into them. But fortunately, that is not the case for the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ game.
The game is not downloadable for free, though. You have to shell out $4.99 to purchase it as a mobile game download. However, you surely would eventually agree that lack of unnecessary in-app purchases makes it worthwhile to consider.
Role playing game
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ game is actually an action RPG or role-playing game. It features the popular characters of Star Lord, Groot, Rocket, Gamora, and Drax. Those are obviously in the starring role. There are no upsells.
The 2.5D side scrolling combat game can be compared to one of the Battleheart games. Players can make their heroes around the mobile screen for dealing with enemies while they are triggering special abilities as well as generating combos through combination of attacks by the right heroes.
There is also the virtual capability to gain more experience in leveling up and finding new items as you go on. Of course, the idea of those is to make the player more powerful to combat virtual/mobile opponents.
There is an enjoyable challenge. To begin with, controlling one’s team can truly be hectic. However, it can be a very intuitive experience. Simplicity of controls facilitates management of multiple units all at once. Just tap and drag from a unit to the enemy and the attack will start.
This game can be played across several levels in different environments. Virtual enemies would evolve over time. There would be no occasional boss battle that you have to contend with.
The game’s graphics also make it unique. There is a clean layout design, which differentiates it from the typical comic book cell shading style. The characters have a little oversized heads with numerous cartoon-like details.
