Classic early 80's style arcade space shooter, with a laid back vibe and easy, smooth controls. Just chillax and shoot some aliens for a while.
- Variety of different aliens that swoop down at a nonchalant pace (it gets crazy later on).
- Unique boss every 5 waves
- Shoot meteors, debris, SPACE HIVES
- Scavenge and attach gadgetry to create varied powerups
- Rescue hapless humans floating around in space FOR POINTS
- Every 10 waves passed, you can continue from that point! Each new wave is unique and incrementally harder.
Updated for iOS 12 and latest screen sizes.

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.
It's great (old review), problems (new review)
First, the new review... The new update doesn't allow me to get into the preferences or to pause the game. It crashes every time I try to do either. Perhaps it's because I'm using an iPad 3 with iOS 9.5.3, but it still needs to be fixed. By the way, this is coming from the player with the all-time high score. Beat me if you can ;-)
Now, my original review... I love it! Definitely a blast (pun intended) from the past. It's just hard enough to make it a terrific, retro example of the 80s/90s space genre. Rarely do you get caught in a corner like the old Galaxian game, which is nice. If you enjoy "old school," you most assuredly will like this app. Thumbs up, baby!
