A new classic.
When Chillaxian was released maybe two or so years ago I played it all the time and loved it. Like most apps, it made its way to the furthest reaches of my iPhone after a few months. I was so happy to see it featured in the App Store as a throwback favorite. I immediately downloaded it again and it's like returning to an old classic — only its brand new and absolutely perfect for mobile.
Oh, and the curved missiles are a brilliantly executed touch. They make you feel like you're throwing big left and right hooks at your opponent while solving the chase problem so common to Galaga.
I'm guess the best I can say about this game is that the developer just gets it.
The Game I've Been Waiting For
Ages ago (in the 90s) a free game came with my Macintosh computer: 'Pegleg II': it was simple, fun, and addictive enough to cause all-nighters of gameplay. .. It was The Stuff.
But come osX out went Pegleg II and I've been on a hunt for the last decade-plus to find a game at all like Pegleg with zero luck ...until now: enter Chillaxian: Very similar concept / feel and VERY fun to play.
With Chillaxian you just maneuver - your ship shoots - this might not Sound intriguing until you get a feel for the controls: they're fantastic and allow the player to become immersed in the wonderfully lo-fi Chillaxian galaxy.
AWEsome game and completely worth the asking price.
Why 5 stars?
Years after release this game is a fully premium, full screen, experience that works flawlessly on the IPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.1. The control scheme is simple but fun and very effective. I love the graphics style and the gameplay. If you have ever played, or grew up playing, Galaxian you will absolutely love this game! It nails the arcade feeling and gameplay perfectly. Even the sounds give off the right atmosphere. Thank you madgarden for a great game!
