The game follows all five Guardians, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot, on an all new adventure where they discover an artifact of unspeakable power. " Each of the Guardians has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands," according to the official App Store description.
In the first episode, the Guardians agree to visit a Kree planet after Thanos is spotted by the Nova Corps..
In the game players must interact with both words and prompts while following along with the story. Player's decisions and actions decide the outcome of the game, so choose wisely. The official App Store description promises a brand new story set to the beat of awesome music like the original film.
