Hi all,

Some people already know me because of TrackMe,
a free GPS track application that I wrote sometime ago.

I'm creating a new thread because I just finished writing a game that I wanted to share it with you guys.

Distant Galaxies is a classic space shooter. This game tries to follow the same philosophy of old classic games, but adding more enemies, final bosses, extra weapons and the ability to upload your score and share it with the rest of users in the World Ranking. I tried to keep this game far from other space shooters for PDAs where you can only see bullets, 3D effects and all kind of stuff in the screen that makes playability very complicated. This game is easy and fun to play and that's why I think this game is closer to those old classics.

And yes, the game is free!

DOWNLOAD

Xbox

Windows Phone 7

Pocket PC CAB file

Pocket PC Installation program

Smartphones CAB file

As I said with TrackMe, if people are interested and play the game, I will be adding more levels and other stuff, otherwise I will stop updating the program soon.

Have fun!

A note for Kaiser users. For some reason the game is not a smooth as it should for this PDA. Maybe it's because of the lack of video drivers. On my old
Cingular 8125 the game runs great.

hey, thanks for trying it.
That's one of my concerns about the game. Not sure if it is too difficult. I will change the difficulty if people think it's too high.

Actually, I think it has more to do with me not being a gamer and not very good with controlling things with my thumb yet. It's been years since I had a game system. Does Sega Genesis ring a bell?

he he... I understand. However, I tried to write an easy game that anybody could play. I don't know... I think that maybe it's a little bit too difficult. Let's see what other people say!

Thanks for your feedback.

That looks like an amazing game. I already benefit tremendously from Track Me, so I know that this will be great! Unfortunately, I own a Kaiser (AT&T Tilt) so I know that it can't handle it.

Maybe I'll get my wife to let me play it on her Moto Q Global!

Why can't you use a Tilt? I'm using a Tilt to play it and it's just fine. Just get the Pocket PC version.
