A Personal Favorite

Except perhaps for rescued ships leaving on a timer, this Galaga port has everything I could have hoped for in a modernized version of the arcade classic. Finger control on the iPad is excellent (with the possible exception of variations in bonus coin pickup by the different ships between levels). It is challenging, but possible to play totally for free, and as you save up, acquire and max out each of the unique ships, you can enjoy a nice variety of playing styles. Just be patient. I have done so for every ship, have over 300,000 available coins, 2800 warp capsules, and over 2600 replay tokens, and have never spent a dime on the game, not because the pricing was unreasonable, but because I didn't have to! To help provide some financial reward to the developers for their work on this great game, I have watched videos for daily bonuses, but can play entire matches without doing so if the need arises. I daily add 11 replay tokens to my total by playing all 11 levels, a task that normally takes around 15 minutes. My personal favorite ship is Starblade, but I enjoy the variety of options on each of the ships. I look forward to the next ship release, so I can add even more fun to my play experiences. I highly recommend this title!

iCloud Sync! 🎉

I am so happy about I cloud sync! I can't wait to try it. Not having it was a real problem.

This also will make it easy to fix the space issue. Over time, its cache just grows. Now you can just reinstall the app to fix that. Easy. It's still a problem, but with a makeshift solution.

I guess the only bad thing I can say is that the Xevious and Galaxian ships feel under powered. For instance, the Xevious omni-shots are too slow to effectively kill probes for 👑 coins; the Galaxian's bomb has weak offenses, forcing you to dodge rather than aim. I always start with the Xevious ship so that I can kill it while paired with a better ship.

Second, I just saw that they made a compromise on the high score rewards. I'm actually ok with it as it now is in the hundreds. That may be a fraction of what it was, but this more lives, an opportunity for higher scores is created.

Old Review:

It's a fun game, but killing the high score hurt. I finally fully upgraded the new ship. Not bad. Not perfect, but decent and free. You have to really like the genre to like the game. It takes a minimum of around 45,000 coins to deck it out, but less than 90,000 to insta upgrade everything.

What makes that problem worse is this: it takes up almost a gig of space over time.

Okay game

I love Galaga! I’ve been playing since the 80s! The PSP version was a ton of fun and then the mobile platform took the works by storm! I like this game but the gameplay isn’t seamless. I shouldn’t go out of the game after I die once just to say continue for the 2nd life... who thought this up! Then I PAY for the Katamari character and he comes with an extra life but guess what I HAVE TO WATCH A VIDEO OR PAY 100 COINS TO USE THE EXTRA LIFE! I’m what Galaga world does that make any sense!! I get it, you’re looking for every single angle to collect currency for this game but you’re going about it the wrong way! Clean the game up! The three lives shouldn’t cost commercial breaks and should be seamlessly in the gameplay. Going from one sector to the next shouldn’t cost me something if I have already beat the boss!! Come on! You’re better than what you’re putting out!! Katamari was the reason I even opted to download this game! You should point out that you have to BUY him since you’re using him to promote the game! You can’t win him or earn anything to get him, you have to right out pay for him, which I did!
