    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 --> StarAttack!

    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...
