Without the original soundtrack, it's not Glaxian. It's a game that looks and perhaps plays like Glaxian, i.e. based on. But, it's not.

If they're going to use a possibly still copyrighted name anyway, why not the sound fxs? :confused:

Yes, i know, and I will add that quite soon (possibly today).
Any other critics you might have? I can use all the comments :)

That would be great! It's in my "wish-list", so I'll be looking forward to the update.

I need to earn back all those quarters I spent on the original! I always got Glaxian and Galaga mixed up in my mind. I bought Galaga, and, while fun and nostalgic, isn't at all the same as Glaxian.

(I had a suspicion you were the developer - hope I wasn't to harsh in my criticism :) Thanks for the quick response!)

Hi gr8tfly!

I have added background music and alien sweeping sounds to the game.
Version 1.1 is ready for review in the appStore.
I will put a Youtube video of this new version later today.

I'll check it out. Hope you get a quick review cycle - I've heard it can be frustrating.

I was lucky with V1.0, it took only 10 days (counting the weekend). I heard others had longer times.

Edit: i have put the sound on/off option both to the music and sound effects, i didnt want to make separate options, i hope it will be OK for everyone :P

I found some bugs this week and i had to fix them (the binary is upladed for review), so the review process will take a bit longer, but it will worth it :)

Galaxians will be replaced by StarAttack soon.

This is an enhanced version of the classic alien attack on the player theme.
Features:
- three levels of difficulty
- game sound effects
- game background music
- option between classic / extended play

If extended play is in use:
- power-ups
- harder to kill enemies
- more frequent attacks

Here are some beta screenshots (the app will be posted on AppStore on the weekend). Let me know what do you think of it...
