Space Invaders/Galaga Love Child!!

Xxxglasschromaxxx

I worshiped Space Invaders back in 1981 on Atari. It may have been the only Atari game that I actually flipped or maxed the score on. I also loved Galaga in the arcade and it would be coin toss between that and Ms. Pacman. Galaxoid is obviously referencing those two games, but with a nice modern flavor. I love the boss fights, which add another level of difficulty as the gameplay gradually ramps up after you defeat the boss. The little touches of interactive power ups and laser beams are a great addition. While, I can see how some may disagree with your spaceship staying at the bottom of the screen the whole time, I disagree about the touch controls being terrible. they could stand to be a little more like Plasma Sky, but it's fine the way it is. Maybe the addition of an auto shooter could be cool, but it's not necessary. Get this game if you love Space Invaders, Galaga, or modern iOS shmups!! It will have a permanent home on my iPad, for sure.

Fun, however...

A great pewpew kinda game, sort of a mix of Galaga and Space Invaders, very fun. The graphics, music and gameplay will please devotees of the 80's arcade experience.

The two things I DON'T like, however, are that there doesn't seem any way to save one's game, and if one is foolish enough to do something else on one's iPhone with a game paused, that game is GONE. Since a game can be pretty lengthy, this seriously compromises it's casual use, which is what makes so many games great. Also, it doesn't look as though there's any way to upgrade weapons or capabilities...and being a "retro" game that really isn't something that's expected, but I did find myself, after several levels, wishing I could change it up some.

There IS an alternate weapon, the Laser, which is very powerful but a little clumsy to get to. Otherwise, the controls are exquisite!

$1.99 seems a little steep for a game this simple, but I'm certainly enjoying it!

GALAXY WHAT I NEEDED!!

Jayhawk Jim

Sherwood Forest USA is an idiot. This game is PERFECT!! I am right-handed as well and have NO PROBLEMS with the controls. This is typically what you do for controls. You move with your left and fire with your right. Brilliant game. I love the music also. I have Warblade as well, and it's a nice game, but Galaxoid is better. And better yet, Galaxoid didn't cost me 2.99. Galaxoid provides hours and hours of pure gaming fun that harkens back to a time that makes me respond to the question, "Where's the beef?", by saying, "Well, there you go again."
