Galactic Patrol Special Assignment Announced
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Over the weekend, MonkeyByte sent word they are working on an expansion to their popular shareware space shooter, Galactic Patrol. The game is a 3D take on many early arcade classics, and now fans of the title will have a chance to play through more levels in Galactic Patrol Special Assignment. While no new game styles will be added, the overall difficulty is sure to increase along with the number of enemies and levels. Here's an except from the press release:

You have asked for it and we are bringing it on! Number 2 in the series, Galactic Patrol Special Assignment hits the net with new aliens and all new levels.

"We heard from more than a few people that Galactic Patrol was too easy, well we fixed that," said President/Designer Nicolas Murphy. "It's much more of a challenge." Also different in this offering are the views. GPSA is top-down only. "This view selection also satisfies numerous requests from our fans, but don't think it's going to be like this for GPII."

So it seems that there will be a full-fledged sequel to be released some time after Special Assignment. For more on both games, stay tuned to IMG. And if you haven't yet tried the original Galactic Patrol, download the demo at
