Space Invaders on steroids! Galazer Deluxe - Free today from the Amazon Appstore

Galazer Deluxe
By James Richardson on 13 Aug 2014 06:47 am EDT

Just a quick heads up for you on todays free offering from the Amazon Appstore. Galazer Deluxe can be downloaded for BlackBerry 10 (here in the UK anyway) and after playing it for just a few minutes I can say it's a beauty.

It's a similar concept to Space Invaders but with a modern twist. The spacecraft that you need to shoot down will fly around the screen and only become static as you collect bonus items, which also include weapons. In addition, there are meteor storm levels where it's just a case of avoiding them as they hurtle towards you in varying sizes - all rather hectic, yet fun.

When it comes controls, you just have a left and right tab at the base of the display - although you can switch to one handed within the settings if you desire. Galazer Deluxe really does feel like a classic arcade game so if that's your kind of thing, go and grab it.

If you're seeing another app that's free today on Amazon please sound off in the comments?

So sad to see that cb is so dedicated to reporting on andriod apps, and not native blackberry 10 apps

Classifieds Canada and GeoYeo B4B Apps all the way!!!

There tons, in addition this is supposed to be a blackberry fan base club, not amazon app of the day got nothing better to write about andriod app promotion platform.

(mildly off topic here). What I have found is that while there may not be 125 versions of the same app, there's one or two and they work well. In that light, do you need to have a large numbers of essentially useless or redundant apps to have a healthy ecosystem? I would argue that you don't need numbers, just quality.

Considering it has been around since BBOS days as I had it on my Bold 9700, I would beg to differ that it is an Android Port

I'm with you on this one. This site is becoming an android fan club. Even Kevin left to go play as the head of the HOA and use his iPhone.

Yes it's kinda sad.

I miss Chris Umiastowski's articles too, but he doesn't use BlackBerry ether. The dark side is getting to many of these guys, they need to come back and see the light...

The light shines brightest in the darkness...

Agreed I really don't come here to read about Android and there new games. Besides they use a ton of battery life.

Actually works ok on Q10. I didn't think it would, but I'm enjoying it on the Q10's "smaller" screen.

Frosty white Q10/

It's nothing to do with Space Invaders, the reporter has obviously never heard of Galaxian (hence the name Galazer), dating back to the 70s.

Well, since we got that deal between BB and Amazon, I guess it's your "duty" to write about various Amazon offers. But I would also like to see much more native apps beeing presented/reviewed here. And it's not that there isn't enough of them. In this relatively short time with my first BB device, this amazing white Z10, I discovered many great native apps, in almost all categories. From file managers, to productivity and office, to system utilities, to backup, to photography, and whatnot...

Welcome to BlackBerry! I have a Z10 and my contract is up. First time I haven't jumped right away to a new phone.

Articles comment on special offers and free apps in BBW too when they happen. The point is that Amazon's free app of the day is worthy of comment, when something good pops up.

I used to use the Amazon app store and loved the FAOTD but when the android phone I had at the time started running out of resources and I force closed the Amazon app store APK I learned any apps purchased/downloaded from it didn't work unless the app store was running. Since I don't use Apple because of these types of tactics I felt Amazon didn't deserve my business any longer either. I'm curious what kind of overhead the Amazon app store will be on BB 10.

This has been available for a longtime in BB World. I guess there it's not free though so you've got that going for you which is nice.

It's actually more related to Galaga. I love it. Shame it's not native like it was on bbos and pb

C00121953 channel for car freaks!!

Totally Galaga / Galaxian. Amazon store is the new reality sadly for gaming. Not going to be a lot of native games going forward. I will pay for good native though - hint to developers.

Yep agreed would spend money for quality and even donate some if I really use the app a lot and like the dev.

I just downloaded GT Racing 2 from amazon app works totally fine, seems like all the big brand game makers (gameloft, EA.... etc) had 4goten BlackBerry totally it's real sad

Ya'll bitch because of the app gap and now you have the choice to have a lot more apps and you still bitch. Until BB becomes mainstream again the native apps will be in short supply. You guys already knew this and yet you bought the product anyway. If you are gonna complain about apps, Get an iPhone. no shortage of apps there.

No offense to those who don't like it.
But when BlackBerry officially announces it's new partnership with the Amazon app store any apps in that store are fair game for reviews since we will be able to download them.
It belongs on crackberry because BlackBerry has made an agreement making it so.

"I love when people boast about their its a pissing contest"

Blackberry user are complaining about android apps? A while back, that's all everyone was talking about. HAPPY to get those apps that couldn't be found in the appworld, lol. Now look at you! You should be happy you have the best of both worlds, and are not stuck with just one choice.

Why do I need newer or faster blackberry 10 if I can't use all the hardware on it? I'm on Q10 and I love it but I need native apps and games just like all of you.
