Namco wasn’t kidding when they said Galaga Remix would be available soon. Yesterday, Namco released the arcade shooter on the iPhone App Store for the promised price of $5.99.
Galaga Remix includes two versions of Galaga: the arcade version that stole a vast sum of coinage from my pockets, and a new remixed version. The remix version has updated backgrounds, more bosses, more power-ups, a free play mode that allows you to play the levels you’ve completed again and finally, “dual-fighter” mode.
The App Store, sadly, does not accept quarters or Chuck E. Cheese tokens as a method of payment. You’ll have to whip out the plastic if you’re down with reliving Galaga with touch controls. (Chuck E. Cheese still has tokens, right?)
