In 1981, Galaga was released by Namco as a sequel to Galaxian, from a couple of years before. A shoot-‘em-up featuring starship fighters battling against enemy aliens, it quickly became one of the most successful titles from the golden age of arcade video games. And now, in celebration of its 35th anniversary, it has been reimagined for mobile gamers and nostalgic players alike in the form of Galaga Wars.
Galaga Wars is both a tribute to and an update of the original Galaga. With its various nods to the classic game’s gameplay, visuals, and sounds, Galaga Wars offers a nostalgic trip to players who have fond memories of playing Galaga in arcades and at home with their old game consoles. At the same time, it boasts expanded mechanics, 3-D graphics, and engaging audio effects well-suited to modern mobile gaming.
Battle the waves
Just swipe on the screen to move your starship fighter around as it shoots wave after wave of invading aliens. Be sure to evade oncoming blasts and avoid enemy collisions or it's game over.
Conquer the sectors
Travel across sectors by annihilating waves and clusters of enemies, including original ones such as Bee, Butterfly, and Scorpion.
Double the trouble
One of the trademark aspects of the original Galaga is the player's ability to rescue a captive fighter and merging with it in twin mode to double the firepower against the enemies. And you bet this is incorporated into Galaga Wars.
Level up your fighter
Collect coins and power-ups as you go to improve your chances at victory. Upgrading your craft gives you access to unique abilities. Play as Galaga fighter, or choose from iconic starships from other Namco games such as Galaxian, Star Blade, and Xevious.
Playable on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Galaga Wars is available on the App Store as a free-to-play game.
