Galaforce 2 is everything that Galaforce was, and more - more aliens, more patterns, much more speed, more features (including collectable capsules - some help, some hinder), excellent sound effects and music.

Playing The Game
You are a lone fighter pilot in a sixteen galaxy battle for the supremacy of the universe. You must fly your starfighter through the hordes of oncoming aliens, each galaxy containing several formations of enemy fighters. Avoid them or shoot them down to stay alive!
Watch out for the alien Capsules. These may be collected by shooting them twice or colliding with them. They all contain special features: e.g. extra laser power; extra life; or they may contain harmful features such as no laser power or slow movement.
The feature last collected remains until another capsule is captured. The capsules are released in strict order, so it is useful to note which capsule contains which feature.
You have three spaceships to start, but can have a maximum of five.
