Originally released in 2015 for PC and PS4, Galak-Z Variant Mobile, as the name suggests, is a modified port designed to work for touchscreens, letting mobile gamers enjoy Galak-Z's evasive combat and relentless enemies, both mechanical and alien.
Perhaps the most critical aspects of Galak-Z that seperates it from other hectic shoot-em-ups is its combination of stealth and transforming mech actions. Enemy ships have line of sight and your ship makes different amounts of noise based on movement, so you can flank enemies and ambush them from behind for extra damage or just hide to avoid a particularly tough foe you can't defeat yet.
Or you could transform into your mech form to deflect incoming missiles with a shileld, slice away with your laser sword, or grab enemies and fling them into other ships or lava pools. Mastering when to tranform and use the abilities of each form is key to surviving Galak-Z's traps, hordes of alien threats and rival pilots, and the game's looming bosses.
Upgrades and relics let you improve and customize your ship to become a effective one-pilot-army, while daily challenges and multiplayer squadron battles let you test your skills against human opponents.
