While we Android gamers aren’t exactly starved for choice, sometimes there is just nothing quite like the classics. Originally released in 1983 on the Apple II, Lode Runner Classic has now made its way to…
Galaga is easily one of the best classic games out there and it'd be definitely nice to play an updated version of it on our smartphones though. Thanks to Namco, Galaga can be now played on Android smartphones and tablets.
Galaga Special Edition is available in the Google Play Store as a free download. It still offers that same classic shoot ‘em up gameplay we all love, while having been graphically overhauled. This was a good decision on Namco's part since most of us are expecting top of the line graphics in the games we play.
There are many other awesome things in this release. One of those things is that a very wide range of people now have access to Galaga. After all, Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and Android 2.2 Froyo is what the majority of people are running. If your device is running Android 2.0 or higher be sure to snag Galaga Special Edition for free here!
While it's great to see an updated version of Galaga on Android, I'm excited to see Atari's port of Rollercoaster Tycoon though. Its set release is Q1 2013. That's a bit vague, but at least we will not be waiting too long to get our hands on it!
