Galacide is an evolution of the shoot ‘em up genre, combining the fast-paced action from classic shooters with the quick-thinking tactics of puzzlers. Choose from a variety of ships, each equipped with unique features and abilities. Embark on your mission to tunnel through the strengthening alien invasion, find it’s source, and save the galaxy! Go it alone or assemble a squad of your friends to battle in the most unforgiving corners of the universe!

Please note, because of Engine limitations, mouse control is not yet supported on Galacide's in-game menus. We hope to bring support in the future.

In Galacide, you must carefully strike a balance between fighting the enemy and tunneling through the encroaching Bitwall, as neglecting either will assuredly result in your demise. It’ll take a combination of skill, luck, and an advanced spacecraft to ensure your success, so choosing the right craft for your piloting style is key:
  • Mining Ship - A retrofitted asteroid mining vessel, this ship has a solid balance of agility, strength, and firepower, and is equipped with a powerful tractor beam used to pull in enemy Scrap.
  • Freighter - A re-purposed cargo-hauler, this ship may not be the fastest or hit enemies the hardest, but it’s as durable as they come, with the ability store & retrieve enemy scrap in its cache.
  • Phase Ship - A top-secret military experiment, this ship is able to move extraordinarily fast and temporarily phase through the Bitwall, while dodging enemy attacks.
  • Military Ship - The accepted standard for military conflict, this ship boasts huge strength and firepower. Homing missiles lock on targets, and the ability to burst through the Bitwall, carving its own path.

As part of your mission to eradicate the alien invasion, you will journey across the galaxy and visit unique destinations like asteroid fields, planets, mining depots, and junk yards - Each location bringing you one step closer to finding the invasion’s source!

Galacide is regularly updated with improvements and new features, and currently has the following functionality:
  • 4 Player Co-op - Enlist the aid of your comrades in your fight to save the galaxy, with 4 player local co-op!
  • Campaign - Fight your way through unique environments and challenges to discover the source of the alien scourge and eliminate it!
  • Endless Play - See how far you can make it fighting through endless hordes of enemies and tunneling through the advancing bitwall!
  • Puzzle Play - Complete progressively more difficult scenarios that challenge your mind, not your trigger finger!
  • 4 Playable Ships - Choose from the Mining Ship, Freighter, and Phase Ship, each equipped with special abilities and unique attributes!
  • In-game Tutorial - Become an ace pilot by going through a quick training program.
  • Leaderboards - Track your skills and see how you compare to your friends and the best pilots in the universe!
  • Steam Economy - Achievements, Trading Cards, Badges and collectible Emoticons.

Galacide reviews and comments

Translated by

It's a Mixed feeling. From the game of the genre of Shoot ' em up when you expect to fall on the head of bonuses like rain and rabid Mochilovo all and all. Want a large selection of pumping, a variety of ships and a sea of enemies, which with each update will kill all the more interesting. But in Galacide you can see the game in a couple of hours. The Gameplay though captures in the first time, but then comes monotony. No Pumping. To Choose from, you can open another three (2-4 hours) In addition to the main ship, and this will expire. I didn't.

Early Access Review Haven't played a lot but I like it so far. The Gameplay is fresh and interesting. The game runs on ultra settings without problems on a 770 GTX. The music is very cool and fits the game perfectly. I like the fact that there are different types of ships to chose from,it makes the game less ''2 dimensional''. It's in early alpha developement so there will be a lot of content to expect (I hope so at least since there is only endless mode and tutorial (which is done quite well,but they should add music to it next patch) so far) Give the game a chance , it is worth the 10 bucks, trust me ;) ~Golden Week

Graphically the whole is very correct although little inspired and the mix shmup/match 4 gives an interesting result that requires a good workout to begin to actually enjoy it, especially in high difficulty. Unfortunately, the low number of levels and the problems of readability penalise the whole and make it a medium game that one will soon buckle up without necessarily wanting to play again later. It remained short of time in early access (about three months) and I think the developers wanted to take it out too fast. It could have been vastly better with additional adjustments.

Product received for free Taken from CitaGamer [citagamer.com], the best games to play as a couple. Galacide is a shoot ' em up by Navesitas side scroller that also combines with Bejeweled style puzzle games. Couple game Modalities: Co-Op Local/Local Coop What He opined: The Galacide is a very interesting game because it combines very well two pretty good game types, the side scrolling shoot ' em ups (I tell You navesitas style because in almost all games Of that type you are a Navesita), with the type of puzzle game or puzzle, in which you have to think to advance. What She opined: The Galacide gives you a different twist in the game experience by combining a side scroller of airplanes with puzzles. The Galacide takes 5 stars because he had never known a similar game, navesitas with puzzles? Bright! Click here to view our full review at CitaGamer.
