Few classics are still as beloved in an arcade as Namco’s original space shoot ’em up epic Galaga. Now thanks to Raw Thrills and Bandai Namco, Galaga is back and ready for action!
Galaga Assault has two modes: Redemption Mode (default) and Amusement Mode. Since it was first created with redemption play in mind, every Galaga Assault machine ships with an operating ticket dispenser. In this mode, players face down a wave of 100 space bugs. If they survive this, they battle a giant Bug Boss in the battle for the ultimate ticket jackpot!
Improve your chances of that jackpot with the unique ship buy-in feature. At the beginning of each game, the player has the option to pay extra to buy up to as many as 12 ships! The more ships you have, the lower the jackpots (since the difficulty decreases) but there’s nothing quite like taking on the Galaga hordes with an armada of 12 ships on your side! Operators can adjust the buy-in ship cost to your liking.
Amusement Mode was created for venues that simply want an updated version of Galaga for their arcades. It plays just like the old school Galaga that players remember, with wave after wave of enemies challenging your skill. New additions are the sharp HD graphics, the occasional Smart Bomb which if shot clears the screen of all opponents, a chain combo scoring system and every 10 waves, face down against the mega-boss for big points!
Both modes will display a QR code at the end of each game. This allows players to share their best scores on Facebook or Twitter. The game also has a leaderboard with 10 slots and space for up to 7 letters for name input.
