A relatively obscure version of Namco's classic shooter Galaga
is coming to iPhone, along with the least obscure version of Galaga!
The newly announced Galaga Remix
contains both the original 1981 game and a widescreen presentation of 1995's Galaga Arrangement
, which features updated graphics, bosses, and various gameplay tweaks. The trailer after the break features footage from Arrangement
Both games will be playable in one of three control schemes: virtual directional buttons, a sliding-based method, and tilting. According to Touch Arcade
, the game "will arrive in the App Store any day now and will be priced at $5.99." This
is what we want out of high technology: the ability to buy and play super-old games whenever we feel like it.
