That title sounded better in my head..
Galaxia Conquestum is a turn-base arcade game. First you select your faction and enter the galaxy map to strategically choose which galaxy you’ll attempt to conquer. Then you’ll be fighting in space through an arcade scrolling shooter to conquer that galaxy! Be careful, your opponent can also attack you fiercely. Defend your galaxy when attacked and bring the fight to your enemy on the next turn.
The Key Features are:
• Custom game settings
• Choose from 3 factions
• Turn-based and arcade gameplay
• 10 in-game achievements
• All original music
• Partial Xbox 360 controller support
The game has its basic function and isn’t too complex, but you can’t let its simplicity fool you. The game does pose a real challenge, you’ll also have the choice of whether to let the computer fight for you or not. Where is the fun in that, though?
The thing that I really like is how complicated the game could be and the fact that it was just so simple like its original. With improved graphics giving it a slightly 3D look, you fly through-out space dodging and shooting overwhelming odds to an ominous but catchy soundtrack. I also find myself raging at a few moments in the game, and am slightly taken back by the nostalgia it provides. I haven’t played a game like this in so long that I forgot how hard they can actually be compared to the games of today. Complexity of the game mostly came from the fact it was such an old system that you were used to as a kid so going back in you think “spfft.. ” and then 4 rage-fest hours later you’re wondering “HOW WAS I DOING THIS AS A KID!?!?!”
Final Verdict: Overall I had a very good time playing this and got a good challenge at the same time a huge nostalgic rush. It feels good to go back and play such a simple game that used to bring us joy as kids, and some adults. You can play this now for the Android OS and PC. I give this game a 10/10, making it a Platinum RGN Game.
Overall Score: 10/10
