Today I bring to you the review of the game Galaxy Guardians 3D. It’s really easy to play, the goal of this game is to hold on as much time as possible, in this case to fly as far as possible. Developed by WildWolf Games and launched at 18 December 2014. Our role in this game is of protecting the galaxy against the attack of alien ships.
Despite having a simple goal and a apparently easy gameplay, we’ll find throughout the game some hardships.
The main goal of the game is to drive a ship the furthest possible (maximum time possible), having as adversaries small ships that will show themselves as we go along the infinite galaxy. To defeat the adversary ships, we have to fire a laser against them. The same happens to the asteroids that cross our path. By destroying the ships and asteroids we earn coins to upgrade our ship and to equip it.
One of the problems found was that at the end of each race we are given the possibility to go to the shop and buy upgrades for our ship, but we can’t understand what we are buying nor how many coins we’re spending. Some colourful cards appear, in which we click, and only after clicking them is when we know what we bought.
Another hard task is the one of destroying enemy ships that travel to the inferior area of the screen (under our ship). As much as we try, it’s not possible to direct our ship downwards in a way we can aim our enemy. In this case, death is certain since several enemy ships can agglomerate in that area, which will eventually destroy us. The only way — and in many cases it doesn’t work — of destroying some of those ships is using a missile (the button on the right side of the normal laser). The same happens with items that appear throughout the game, the only way to catch some of them is by using the missile.
This game is endless, having as objective to increase the distance travelled as we improve the ship along the way.
Graphics and Sound
The graphics of this game are fairly simple, reaching the point of being too simple. Taking us back to the arcade games that had figures with several vertexes and irregular geometry.
The game’s background sound is pleasant and adequate to the type of game. The only downside is the sound of shooting , which becomes unbearable when we unlock the quick shot.
The game has two sets of controls. On the left side we have a circle with the commands to steer the ship, and on the right side we have attack controls. As the game progresses, and the ship improves, the type of attacks that will be unblocked will show on the right side of the screen, above the initially available simple shot.
Besides those controls, on the upper right corner we have the pause button and the turn on/off sound button, and on the upper left side is our ship life gauge.
Advertisement wise, the only existent one is a small rectangle in the middle of the screen base (between the game controls), not interfering with the game itself, nor existing the possibility of clicking it unintentionally.
Despite the gameplay being really good, and the commands answer being quick and fluid, some of the hardships found throughout the game and the graphics quality displayed, make it an average game and maybe a bit frustrating.
For those who like this type of game it doesn’t cost a thing to give it a try and take your own conclusions, but for those who don’t like this type of game, this one certainly won’t make you change your mind.
