What's New in Version 2.1
Feel compelled to write this review, as the gameplay has left this, in my opinion, clumsy, awkward. To fire you must first let go of "joystick", which is far. From fluidic , in fact very touch and go, stop, go. Not playable otherwise , just like the original which was a step up from "Space invaders", the best pub game ever and grossed more than "S.I." Don't they have game testers? Two buttons for lateral movement would be far superior in my opinion.
Would have been 5 star had it been playable. 🌞✌
Give it time!!
To fans of this classic I say download it. Yes I agree that the controls are disappointing but persevere and you'll get used to them. On the whole it's an excellent version of this classic shooter. To the developers - give the option of alternate controls and you have a winner on your hands.
UPDATE - thanks for adding the joystick but no thanks for adding the worst joystick ever, what the hell were you thinking? Have you actually play tested it? 1 star and 1 deleted App. Good bye.
Poor attempt at a great game
I wish I had read the other reviews before buying. When I first loaded the game it was great to hear that familiar Galaxian sound again but then I tried playing. It's impossible to control using the joystick which takes away any pleasure from playing. I persevered for about 3 or 4 games and then gave up. Don't buy this game. If you've ever played Galaxian then you will be disappointed.
