Galaga Wars is a free mobile arcade game based on the classic Galaga series of shoot-'em-up games. As in the original you take control of a space fighter and battle wave after wave of alien creatures. Periodic boss battles see you facing off against huge enemies and one of the most famous features -- the ability to lock two ships side-by-side and create a double-shooting super-ship. Gameplay is simple the graphics are colourful and the action is fast-paced.
A classic at its core
Galaga Wars is essentially a shoot-'em-up of the traditional style with a few modern bells and whistles in terms of graphics. The touch controls are simple helped by the fact that the controls in this classic genre have never been complicated. Some of the extra features are fun such as the ability to play as the fighters from shoot-'em-up classics like Starblade or Xevious. You can upgrade your ship's abilities using coins earned during play. Like most free mobile games of course this one has in-app purchases static ads and video ads. These are well-managed but still a little intrusive.
If you enjoy the tense fast-paced swarm-zapping gameplay of classic shoot-'em-ups you'll find plenty to enjoy in Galaga Wars. Its gameplay isn't complex but it's an enjoyable good-looking way to pass some time with plenty of Easter eggs for classic arcade game enthusiasts.
