Galastrad - GALAGA-Like SHMUP Game for the Amstrad CPC and GX4000!

Arcade Shooters we just love 'em! From Galaga to 1942, to Xenon and even Swiv. But there's one Shoot 'em up that caught our eye this month, and that's the latest release of ' Galastrad ' for the Amstrad CPC and GX4000. As in the words of the website "GAME RELEASE AVAILABLE. GALAGA-Like SHMUP Game for the Amstrad CPC 464 / 664 / 6128 and GX4000, old-school design for memories". To coincide with this news, Saberman has provided us with a video showing some of the waves of enemies found in the game.

  1. They need to tweak the gameplay a bit i think, the enemy shots seem quite hard to dodge if you try and shoot the enemies. Also some of the continual shooting when they come in a line needs tweaking. The intro stuff is really good. Definite great game here

  2. looks more like xevious than galaga

  3. Music is great. I agree gameplay could use some tweaking, but I am enjoying the high difficulty level.

  4. It's great, but completely not like Galaga...
