More Info on Chillaxian

A bit of Chillaxian video... playing from wave 31 up until the first boss. As usual, the audio is out of sync because I recorded under Linux.



It's free already here in CE.

Tried this last night and a pretty good classic shooter. Gets a little repeditive redoing the easier levels but its a fun shooter all the same. Controls are good with two arrows on both sides of the screen along with autoaim.

Wow! 944 KB (that's right, less than 1 MB) installed.

Kudos to the dev, this is old school programming at its best!

A portrait mode would be really welcome!

I bought this a day ago before it went free. I don't regret it, it is worth the $2 !

Thanks for the heads up on the freebie. I like how many versions of ios this supports. Amazing (and such a tiny install!)

Truely an excellent game, though it feels more like Galaga than Galaxian to me.

I downloaded Chillaxian today, and haven't stop playing it. Chillaxian has an awesome 80s charm to it, with a hint of modern element (ie: explosions).
Anyone else craving a can of TAB soda and Pop Rocks?

Game play is great. The 1979 mode is a nice touch. Controls are smooth and responsive. Been playing only for a short time, but Chillaxian is a keeper for me and would definitely recommend it.

You have to admit it though, Chillaga just sounds right.
