About

Pilot a gun ship and battle aliens, pirates, and other villainous enemies, to gain levels, skills, and most importantly, discover unique and potentially more powerful weapons. Through the unique cgNEAT content-generation technology, new weapons are constantly created by the game automatically. Experiment A key objective of this game is to explore the potential for automated content generation technology to intelligently create content for games. In GAR, all player weapons are generated by the cgNEAT algorithm based on weapon usage statistics. However, cgNEAT does not simply respawn weapons that people like. Rather, it creates new weapons that elaborate on those that have been popular in the past. Game Mechanics GAR combines elements of old-school space shooters like Star Control, action-RPGs like Diablo, and open-world space adventure games like Freelancer. The graphics are fully 3D but in top-down or "2.5D" mode. The chase camera and movement interface is similar to many online RPGs such as WoW. Earn ranks and credits by completing missions and destroying enemies. Use the credits earned to upgrade and customize your gun ship. Galaxy The game progresses through different and increasingly challenging solar systems. Throughout the galaxy are various factions, both friendly and hostile. Game Modes GAR game modes include (1) single player campaign mode, (2) instant-action system defense mode, and (3) multiplayer mode for up to 32 players with both coop and PVP. You can run your own Galactic Arms Race galaxy by downloading the standalone server. A simple windows GUI makes it easy to administrate your galaxy.

Galactic Arms Race reviews and comments

Translated by

Galactic Arms Race How do I best rewrite "Galactic Arms Race"?! A "Diablo" similar Game in the Sci-fi setting with 2.5D graphics and RPG share ... It comes very close to that. "Galactic Arms Race" combines Single-player and Multiplayer, packed in a single Universe where we can move freely and travel from one Galaxy to the next. Here, each Galaxy corresponds to a certain Level Of level. When we start the Game in Singelplayer, we start 1-5 In the Galaxy with Level limit and complete our first Missions. Here comes the first Highlight of the Game, depending on our Approach, our completed Opponents drop other Weapon systems. These present themselves in line with our Strategy. Everything else we cheer sell in place. The further you get in the Missions, you should be careful that our Level also fits that of the Galaxy. Here it can happen that you get "full Pounds on your Mouth" on Arrival;) Thus, we immediately arrive at the RPG share, by selling our Prey Pieces, we accumulate credits and Material that we can spend in better Ships or Upgrades at our served stations. The Stations we have in every Galaxy, and offer ourselves just when we want to try ourselves in a Galaxy that is too high, Protection or Repair even times, for a few Credits, our Ship. We also find our Portals in the next Galaxy or Multiplayer there. To the Game Modas, there are three Pieces, the Campaign, a Survival Mode and The Co-Op or Multiplayer. Co-Op, because you can team up with another Player in The Multiplayer for a Season. As already written, single and Multiplayer can be reached at any time via the Travel System. This results in a fluid Transition between the two Modes. To the Graphic, it looks nice, the Effects of the Weapon systems are quite cool and look good. But it is not an "X-Rebirth";)-wants to and should not be. It's kept simple in terms of Stations and Ship Models, but to expect more for the Price would be almost cheeky. The Sound of the Effects is also rather minimalist, so the Soundtrack has very modern Beats to offer and sounds very good. The Control is also very good, the Ship is controlled by WASD and the selected Weapon system we control with the Mouse. Here, perhaps, you can install three Systems, the Highlight here, which can be adjusted by 360 Degrees in the Fire Angle. Very awesome. "Galactic Arms Race" gets a Recommendation as it's Plentiful fun for the Prize, as a Casual Game for in between. Graphics: 05 out of 10 Sound: 04 out of 10 (Soundtrack has what) Game Time: Variable Idea: 05 out of 10 Story: No
