Arcade Classic Galaga Comes to the iPhone in a Remix Version

Namco on Wednesday released Galaga Remix for iPhone and iPod touch. Selling for US$5.99, the game features not only the original 80s era arcade classic but also a Remix version with six boss battles, power-ups, and background images that take players on a journey from Earth to the Galaga system.

The game also features three control schemes -- virtual arrow keys or a slider, or the accelerometer -- and an update to the dual fighter mode in which players can rescue a captured ship from the enemy's tractor beam and gain one of nine power-ups. A Free Play mode lets them replay previously cleared stages.
