Guardians of the Galaxy game for Windows 8 and Windows Phone on sale

Guardians of the Galaxy, the movie version, opened in theaters on Thursday night and is already looking like it will be a major box office success for Marvel Studios and Disney. To celebrate its release, the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon game for Windows 8 and Windows Phone are both on sale for $3.99 and $1.99 from their respective app stores.

That's a pretty nice price cut compared to their normal $7.99 and $4.99 cost. Just a reminder: the game is not an adaptation of the James Gunn directed movie but uses an all new storyline for its RPG title. Here's the quick description:

"Players will initially take on the role of Star-Lord as he rallies his rag-tag crew—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon with a quick draw and an even quicker temper; Groot, the tree-like humanoid who packs a punch; the deadly and enigmatic assassin, Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer through galactic locations and real-time strategic combat. Marvel fans will recruit and train additional heroes, engage in gesture-based team combat, and unlock each piece of the story to unveil the identity of the Guardians' shadowy nemesis."


Will you be purchasing and playing the game this weekend while also checking out the movie (which is pretty awesome, by the way and you really should see it on the big screen)?
