Game|Life's Chris Kohler played the wacky reinterpretation of Galaga
found on the new Namco Museum Remix
, and somehow came out of it cogent enough to describe the surreal experience. Basically, Pac-Man is rolling down a slide in space, for some reason
, and players have to protect him by shooting the Galaga ships that come down to attack him for some reason
. You aim at the little ships with the Wiimote pointer. If Galaga '88
was Galactic Dancing, this is Galactic-- okay, we don't know what it is. We're still pretty confused about the whole idea.
Kohler also played Rally-X
, which was basically a 3D remake of the original arcade game (which itself is basically Pac-Man
). While Galaga
is rife with Wiimote integration, Rally-X
is more staid and relies on the analog stick and shoulder buttons.
