GALAK-Z: The Dimensional (PC) Review

Nov 11, 2015

There’s certainly not much that can be said about Galak-Z: The Dimensional on PC that has not already been said about its very recent PS4 outing back in August. See here for the original review this article is an extension of. However the PC edition does have a few quirks and niceties that I think bare worth bringing to light. Mainly just things that I personally like to know about before purchasing a video game.

GALAK-Z: The Dimensional Review

Aug 04, 2015

Marcus Tullius Cicero said, “The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” For each death that you will experience in Galak-Z, it will give way to your next life for a chance to start over with having learned something. Galak-Z is a different kind of space shooter than ones you’ve been used to before, and the major difference is the way it progresses. It’s a smart, funny, highly replayable adventure that recalls upon your childhood fondly.
