Words from the company: Galaforce Worlds is a challenging space game packed with impressive features and thrilling edge-of-your-seat action. Compare this game with any other space action game: • 4 alien worlds comprising 66 increasingly difficult stages, including homing missiles and asteroids zones. • 24 different alien types plus 4 power-aliens. • One-player mode and two-player team mode, where two players can simultaneously play the game, helping each other to defeat the alien hordes. • Superb atmospheric music – two talented composers have created some of the best space music we have ever heard! • A very sophisticated galaxy creator and editor which includes: a formation editor, a pattern builder and a galaxy builder. The design possibilities are endless. The best way to succeed in this exciting game is to plan your strategy against each alien wave – it is usually appropriate to vary your strategy as you encounter each new formation of aliens. Watch out for the all-important pickups: there are double cannons, quad cannons, power cannons, anti-cannons, shields, mega bombs, smart bombs and bomb disarmers available as you advance deeper into the four alien worlds!

The Review: Normally we don’t do too many only buy type of games but this one intrigued me. Galaforce reminded me of an old classic I used to love playing at the arcade called Galaga and I used to play if for hours on end. Galaforce is very similar in nature and graphics as well. The music ads a bit of tension while you are playing and because of continuous firering your hand can become numb after a while.
This is one of those games that will make you play just one more round till the next level.. I recommend that you get it and give yourself some agonizing cramps in your hands, just for the fun of it.
