One is always astonished at the sight of super-fast jets propelling at the speeds exceeding that of the sound and loaded with super-heavy bombs and artillery that’s enough to turn down the enemy, irrespective of its size, to ashes. We have watched it numerous times in Hollywood especially when there’s an alien invasion or we’re the front runners onto some other planet or maybe other galaxy. It’s a battle of technologies, a battle of sharp minds sitting behind those elaborate machines that supersede everybody and serve as the stamp of omnipotent. With a cup of popcorns in your hands sipping cold-cola in a sophisticated theatre, it’s always easy to undermine the efforts and an expression-of-wonder is enough on your part as a contribution to the struggle. But when you’re steering the giant ship, I don’t think you’d still be as relaxed and unwind; but you’ll be excited, right!


I’m talking about the latest iOS app called Galaxy Fighters Age of Defeat Free that has been developed by Lycidas Soung. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


With Galaxy Fighters, you’re going on an inter-galaxy voyage where you’re going to face uncountable number of enemies coming right at your face with just one prima facie thought in mind – to destroy you. So ambiguity is not an option for you at all. If you’re in two-minds against such an attack, you cannot survive. The key here is to strike the right balance of defence and attack. You have a good sturdy plane to start with equipped with some of the most deadly weapons and you must also maintain a stock of shields that will guard you against the opponent’s attack. Obstacles are laid down in the path like a barrel of needles spilled over the road by cops to puncture your speeding tyres. So there’s no way out, until and unless you destroy their planes and run over them. But there’s a lot of booty too in the form of diamonds. So don’t forget to have your bite at it.


With an old-school arcade theme, the developers have kept the things nice and simple for the gameplay not attempting to penetrate too much down the sea and accounts for the innumerable hours you can play this game continuously. But the graphics department has a certain shift of intentions with lots of glare, flashy colours and bright beautiful lustre being put on display. It might give you a hint of the way you envisage this galaxy of ours and might complement it further. With fast gameplay and lots of levels to conquer in this fantasy world, this journey is “authorized-to-be-awesome”. No doubts about that!

So overall, I don’t think there’s much left to be told about the amazing journey-I-had with this one. The app’s available for free in the App Store. But there are lots of upgrades available via in-app purchases for shields, diamonds, etc. So start shooting and start exploring now!

Pros: old-school arcade gameplay; beautiful flashy graphics; lots of upgrades; collectibles; multiple levels; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
