It's a Galaxian / Galaga clone. Didn't want to spend $4.99 on it, but I'll take it for free!

The lite version was one of the first games on my 3G. I played the hell out of it. How sweet to finally get the whole thing. I grew up on Galaga and this is as close as you can get. Plays fantastic. Highly recommended!!!

Thanks for the heads-up. I have Galaga Remix, but this is a great arcade clone and stands up wonderfully! Just got it now, definitely recommend it.

Great game, but totally broken high-score entry. It crashes as soon as you start typing your name (on both iPhone 4 and 3rd-gen Touch, even after a full reboot). Definitely download it anyway in the hope the bug gets fixed, but what's the use of a high-score game that doesn't save your high scores?

The global high score was in their last update, They tend to update regularly. Frankly, I'd rather see Game Center on it but at least it's not a forgotten app. I'm sure they'll address it soon.
