At Startselect we love games and we love apps. For years Telltale has been one of the best series to satisfy both the gamer and app fanatic inside us, bringing us high quality games for our mobile devices. The release of Telltale's new title, Guardians of the Galaxy, is therefore something that we have been looking forward to for quite a while. Since yesterday we can finally accompany Star-Lord and his friends in an epic adventure. Here's what you need to know about this new game. 


A new addition to the Telltale series

If this is your first Telltale game, an introduction is in order. Telltale focuses on telling episodic stories where tough choices play an important role. Telltale's version of the Walking Dead is the most well known in the Telltale franchise, but other series, films and games like Game of Thrones, Batman and Borderlands have received their own Telltale adaption as well. Guardians of the Galaxy is certainly in good company. 

Gameplay is what we expect from a Telltale game: quick time events, some point-and-click and a ton of choices to be made. The consequences of choices do not become clear in the first episode of the game, but we can expect there to be consequences in later installments. In any case, it's interesting enough trying to keep your arguing bunch of allies under control. Although there are some action elements in the game, you shouldn't expect a space-shooter or a first-person shooter. Choices, character and storytelling are still the most important part of this game. 

Guardians of the Galaxy, a little different

Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy tries it's hardest to keep the humoristic, somewhat cheesy style of the popular movie alive. The game succeeds in this for the most part and doesn't seem to take itself very seriously: almost everything in the game comes with a sarcastic quip or a cheesy joke. The game still manages to set up an intruiging story, however, and introduces the characters in an attractive way. 

Although there are differences between Telltale's versions of Guardians of the Galaxy and the versions you might know from the comics or the movie, the characters are largely what we expect them to be: Star-Lord is arrogant and sarcastic, Rocket is witty and Groot... is Groot. Gamora differs quite a bit from her movie-self, but if you don't expect a replica from the film, this should not be a big issue. Don't be deterred by the fact that this Star-Lord doesn't look or sound like Chris Pratt; The Guardians of the Galaxy are still the dysfunctional, murderous family we love. 

Play on your favorite platform

Like we are used to with Telltale games, Guardians of the Galaxy releases in five episodes. You can buy the episodes seperately or get the season pass. Episode one is now available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, IOS en Android. The price varies between platforms, but is mostly between 5 and 7 pounds. Do you need more credit to grab this game? You can get your Itunes, Xbox and PlayStation credit right here at Startselect.
