A short goofy game reworking the classic game Galaxian, September 15, 2017

This game from the IF arcade pack is a reworking of the classic arcade game Galaxian.

It portrays what it would really be like for the main character in Galaxian. Considering that there are also two space invader clones in the IF arcade pack, this game actually was pretty well put together.

It's super short.

For what it is..., December 11, 2014

...I suppose it's not bad, taking into consideration the source material. More could of been done with it, but at the same time it I'm glad it didn't.

Writing is decent, and gameplay is minimal. The gag only lasts for so long until you find yourself sighing wondering if it will be like the arcade game... AN ENDLESS ONSLAUGT.

The only saving grace I found for this title was the fact that I absolutely love the Namco original (and most ports) and found the take amusing... and it's short.

For what it is; I commend the effort. But I don't recommend this title, unless you're curious about it. OR, you're planning to create your own fanmade IF/TA based off an arcade game to grab ideas and see what Cowley has done right and done wrong in this title.

Other than that... meh...


Baf's Guide


A very short work about what it must be like to be a space pilot in a videogame, facing wave after wave of enemies. Utterly minimal, and not very interactive, but at least it has the sense to stop once it's made its point.
