Galak-Z: The Dimensional is a fun way to kill a few hours. The crazy flight controls feel good, enemy variety is spot on, and the laser customization really lets you shoot the way you want to. Any fans of older shooters like R-Type should have a blast, but you don’t need to totally get the retro vibe 17-Bit was going for to enjoy Galak-Z. It does well enough to stand on its own, and finds ways to keep you playing the same episodes over and over without feeling repetitive. That’s good design.

In spite of these frustrations, Galak-Z has the heart of a truly compelling shooter. I wish 17-Bit had taken its elements and laid them out in a game with a more natural progression, or added a greater level of variety to Galak-Z's extensive randomness. However, even when the game feels unfair, I couldn't resist returning to these pinpoint-accurate flight controls and tense dogfights.

Galak-Z is the very definition of awesome. Playing it makes me feel like the badass intergalactic pilot I always dreamed of being as a kid, and I love it even more because it makes me work for that ecstasy. No battle is scripted, nothing is choreographed – my skills do all the talking. 17-Bit’s physics-based space roguelike is a truly special experience on PS4, one that has the potential to become the flagship indie title on a platform bursting with incredible creations.
