There's no doubt that mobile games are more popular today than they have ever been, which in turn makes gaming more popular than it has ever been, but for those who grew up in the early days of classic and retro video games, when things were just beginning to flourish, oftentimes there can be a desire to feel something a little bit nostalgic. Games like side-scrolling arcade shooter Galaxy Warfighter can provide that type of feeling thanks to the way it was designed, paying a sort of homage to classic arcade-style Shoot'em Up games from decades ago, but built from the ground up for mobile devices with a touch interface.
The first thing you may notice is that the visuals are not as retro as you would expect even though the gameplay type is designed to be in the classic manner, and although graphics are HD, they still offer a little bit of a classic look, along with some simple controls that make the game easy to pick up and play but challenging to master. This particular makeup gives the game a wide spanning target market which include both beginners and seasoned players who are accustomed to these types of games whether on mobile or another platform.
Although the retro style visuals are sure to be a treat for those who grew up with classic games, the special effects are the real gem, and will provide a delight for the visual senses that will make it hard to put down. Galaxy Warfighter boasts over 100 levels to play through giving plenty of content to enjoy. The game features unique boss fights as well which should pose for a bit of a challenge to make things interesting. You'll also have the ability to upgrade your ship to make it more powerful. You'll start off with a blaster upgrade, and as you play you can collect coins from the wreckage of downed enemy ships after you destroy them, and it's these coins which you'll be able to use for the upgraded parts, however, it is worth noting that you will need to pass certain levels before ship upgrades are unlocked. Galaxy Warfighter is free and has no in-app purchases, but it is ad-based, and the ads seem to launch before the beginning of every play session. Nevertheless, this is a fun one and quite challenging, so if you like Shoot'em Up style games such as this, definitely give it a try.
