Galactic Patrol Released for OS X
11:14 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

After an efficient round of beta testing, MonkeyByte has announced that the Mac OS X version of Galactic Patrol, a 3D take on the arcade classics of old, is now ready for public consumption. The game sports relatively low RAM requirements and takes only 3 MB of hard disk space. Here's a description in case you're new to the title:

Galactic Patrol is a new 3D homage to the classic arcade hits of the early '80s. The look and spirit of such legendary games as Space Invaders, Galaga, Phoenix, and Galaxian pulse through Galactic Patrol's 25 levels in over 300 waves of shoot 'em up fun. Reflex-burning top view action, frenzied side scrolling , and comin' right at ya' rear views are all here in this retro-styled alien invasion.
Head over to MonkeyByte now to grab a demo for OS X. The full game costs $20, but owners of the classic application can upgrade to OS X for only $5. See their site for details.
