About

Brand New features!! The Void DLC offers endless gameplay, Online Leaderboards, and a Daily Challenge that allows players to compete worldwide for the top score.

Prepare for the bar to be raised on deep-space 2D dog-fighting! GALAK-Z is a modern, A.I. and physics-driven open-world action game, viewed through the lens of the classic 16-bit space shooter. Powered by the next-generation Cyntient AI platform, GALAK-Z puts players in control of anime-inspired spacecraft inhabiting procedurally generated worlds.

In GALAK-Z both stealth and skill are required to defeat truly intelligent enemies. You will be forced to outsmart enemies that think, react and cooperate like seasoned pilots! Master your ship’s sublimely-honed controls as you blast enemies, unleash missile salvos, and even toss your opponents, mech-style, to their explosive demise.

Recently added, Arcade Mode lets you replay failed missions any number of times without losing all of your saved progress. Rogue Mode retains GALAK-Z’s original white-knuckle roguelike challenge that harkens back to the 16-bit era of gaming. Rogue mode will always be available if and when you’re looking to test your skill and bravery by putting everything on the line, every mission.

Players will be forced to outmaneuver, outgun and outsmart enemies that think, react and cooperate like seasoned pilots. Both stealth and skill are required to defeat enemy squads in a brutal game of cat and mouse. Prepare for an enemy that comes alive like never before!

Game of ships by missions, with freedom of movement (no scroll). Learning to control the ship perfectly requires some practice, as it has many different movements. Various powerups can be found or purchased that improve the ship, give extra moves and shape choices of the shot. To catch with a low, it is worth to enjoy flying with the Navecita. Pros:-The movement of the ship with movement by rear drive (the style of Solar Jetman or Asteroids), it costs at the beginning of controlling, but allows epic maneuvers like turning off the engine turn and shoot. Running backwards while you shoot... Etc... -Good Control with command (without command the difficulty must be abysmal)-The gameplay perfectly reflects that you are a fighter and not a military ship that tank, requiring to flee, use the terrain, confront enemies against each other or ambush to face many Enemies at once. -Objects and enemies are random, allowing you to replay, with different improvements that force you to play differently. Cons-La Estetica anime off missions meets, but approves Justito. -The transition menus between missions are a still image and the choice of improvements is very basic (flat color background...) and lacks clear descriptions.

The truth that I was very disappointed in the game, wait a lot more of him. Play another game of the developer (skulls of the Shogun) that I loved, and I put many expectations in this title. Leave a bittersweet sensasion the experience, as it has very good things but unfortunately the whole does not end square. Not bad game but at the time of recommending a game is always the same question I ask myself:-Would I buy it back from having to do it? And the answer is, NO. Pro:-The graphics and designs are correct for the game style. -At Difficulty Level I find it quite balanced, has a mode for those who do not seek to complicate and another a little more demanding. -The gameplay is very satisfying, at first seems somewhat difficult to control but soon we realize the possibilities of handling the ship. Cons:-Although The designs are correct are repetitive, the spatial theme is not an excuse. -The same goes for enemies, they differ quite a bit from each other but are few for a game of this style. -The campaign is short, repetitive, and there is no reason to replay it once finished. The missions are little inspired in their majority. -If The campaign does not invite to replay it imagine the infinite mode that does not even have missions (although not that would be worse...) Only recommend on offer, 6/10
