Description

In Geekwad: Games of the Galaxy the player takes control of the Geekwad Gamer, the best gamer in the universe. To win the game one has to free a king by getting the high score at five video games and trivia. All the games are parodies of classic arcade games like Spaced Solicitors (Space Invaders), Beefender (Defender), Phlegming (the name is like Lemmings but gameplay is closer to Joust), Grogger (Frogger), and more.
