Galacticon pays homage to games like Joust, Asteroids, and Defender, but adds its own elements to make it feel fresh. The strategy around how to get the best score for each run certainly makes for a challenging and addictive game. My only complaint is that you don't get information about how points are earned until you beat the first level. But for only $4.99 and the amount of enjoyment I've gotten out of Galacticon, this game is worth picking up, especially if you are a fan of arcade-style games.
A great tribute to the classic arcade machines that bring us some of the best memories from 40 years ago when you have only a limited set of coins to achieve the best score. A great example on how a game that appears to be simple can show the basis of how a game should be.
