DescriptionGalaga: Wars is a take on the classic 1981 arcade game Galaga for mobile devices. It consists of several levels called sectors where waves of enemies need to be defeated in a vertically scrolling environments. The space ship fires automatically and it can be moved around anywhere on the screen by tapping, holding and dragging it. As soon as the player releases the finger the game is paused.
Initially only the Fighter ship from Galaga is available. The game is free-to-play, but additional ships can be bought through an in-app purchase. There is FX-01 from Starblade, Galaxip from Galaxian and Solvalou from Xevious. Defeated enemies leave behind power-ups that are unique for each ship, except for the one that briefly provides a faster firing rate. The Figher ship for instance has access to a coin magnet, a jumbo shot, a missile barrage and a turret, while FX-01 can briefly become invulnerable through a ghost form, Galaxip has ricochet bullets and Solvalou has a ram shield to destroy enemies. Defeated opponents also leave behind coins that can be used to upgrade each power-up multiple times to enhance the effects. Sometimes a captured ship can be freed and then it briefly acts as a wingman, copying the main ship's movement and firing.
Sectors generally end with a boss or a wave very reminiscent of the original Galaga. The scrolling environment is changed into a fixed-screen one and a large wave of enemies appears near the top in rows as in the original game, with ships swooping down quickly. After completing sectors there is sometimes a bonus flying section where additional coins can be picked up, shown from a behind view. The ship only has one life, but an additional one can be earned by spending coins or watching a video advertisement. An in-app purchase can also provide a coin doubler. Enemy ships drop warp modules. Once a sector is completed, it can be accessed right away, skipping the earlier ones, by spending these modules.
