JanduSoft is well known for filling console libraries with all sorts of game types. Today not only are they dropping Micro Pico Racers on Xboxbut they also cover the full shmup side of things with the launch of Galactic Wars EX.
Available to buy and download today on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, after launching on PlayStation, Switch and PC a week ago, Galactic Wars EX is one of those old shmups who have dominated the scene over the years.
This one costs £6.69 and is unabashedly a retro shoot’em up. With three unique ship types to choose from, you’ll be tasked with smashing your way through swarms of evil buggies, shooting, dodging and shooting more as you go.
Doing it solo is possible, but Galactic Wars EX will also let you shoot them with a friend through local co-op play, helping you achieve high scores. This will all take place via 60fps HD gameplay, with a chiptune soundtrack fueling things.
