Shoot'em up games have been present in the world of video games ever since the beginning of times. There are loads of legendary titles such as Galaga or Space Invaders, two classic references, the formula of which has hardly been altered over time: a 2D battlefield on which we'll have to face up to never-ending hordes of invaders that move horizontally or vertically and that we have to wipe out.
Over the years, the graphics of these games have been improved but not excessively if we think about the fact that arcade machines reached their highest point in the 80s'. Nowadays we can still download these kill'em all alien spaceship games in APK format for Android and one of the best on Google Play is definitely Galaxy Attack: Alien Shooter.
A shoot'em up game for Android from yesteryear
With such a name, we can't expect anything else other than what we've described: we'll pilot a spaceship that has to face up to waves of aliens that we have to destroy. We'll start off with a rather humble vehicle but as we destroy our enemies, the rewards will allow us to improve the level of our spacecraft and also our firepower.
The game has plenty of pace but without being too frenetic (at least during the first level) so you can learn how to play without resorting to cheats. However, to be to download the full version of the APK, you'll have to resort to the online store from where you can improve different aspects of the game if you're not patient enough to wait to win them on the battlefield.
A game that never goes out of fashion.
- Multiplayer mode.
- High image quality optimized for tablets and large-screen devices.
- 60 levels of increasing difficulty.
- Three game modes: campaign, endless, and boss.
As we mentioned, the game offers us a classic combat system that's identical to that of historical titles of this genre that caused an uproar almost 40 years ago on arcade machines.
