    Galaxy Champions TV is a smooth shooting arcade game with satisfying gameplay and that itch to play more.

    Galaxy Champions T.V. may not be original or fresh, but it does get most things right and adds enough to make the game more compelling and does a fantastic job of updating a classic game. I had hours of fun with this game and the fact that it costs just $6.99 means that you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck.

    Galaxy Champions TV is an unrelenting take on the top-down twin-stick shooter, but one filled with enough pixel-based charm and tight gunplay to make returning to it never a chore.

    In spite of being pretty fun to play, Galaxy Champions TV is missing the heart and character that made Smash TV so endearing. There’s no loudmouth TV announcer spouting dumb catchphrases; there’s no freedom in terms of how you move from room to room. You exit every arena stage right until you hit the boss stage. The minute-to-minute gameplay is decent, but then you hit a wall and keep playing the same stages over and over again to grind out experience, in hopes that a new perk might be able to give you the boost you need.

    Galaxy Champions TV for the Nintendo Switch is a fun twin stick shoot'em-up that brings a lot of frantic, intense action with a sharp sense of control. It also chokes the player with its rapidly-rising difficulty level, which quickly reaches overwhelming heights with many frustrating moments. Were it not for that challenge imbalance, Galaxy Champions TV could become an instant classic within its genre but as it is, it's a fun but excessively punishing work.

    Overall, Galaxy Champions TV is a decent little game, and an instant purchase for those who miss Smash TV. Otherwise, I feel like this is the sort of game perfectly suited to the Switch. Just something to play during your morning train ride. Simple, engaging for a short time, and rounds are over quickly.

    Developed as a tribute of the arcade classic Smash TV, Galaxy Champions TV is quite enjoyable during the first hours. Unfortunately, the lack of variety really impregnates the game, resulting in the player to look away eventually.

    It's a nice little game. Unfortunately they took out the permanent upgrades and instead you get temporary upgrades. One of my favorite thingsIt's a nice little game. Unfortunately they took out the permanent upgrades and instead you get temporary upgrades. One of my favorite things to do was destroy the first couple of levels with highly upgraded weapons but I can't do that anymore. Expand
