Galactic Junk

Author Comments

Stranded in space with a defective engine and countless monsters closing in, can you find the powers hidden deep in the galaxy to unlock the true power of your ship? Galactic Junk is a fast-paced space shooter with simple controls, addicting game mechanics, and unique enemies that are discovered the farther the player travels. With loads of ship upgrades, mission objectives, and built-in high scores, players will find it hard to step away from this game. The controls of Galactic Junk are simple yet challenging. Click or touch anywhere on the screen to shoot in that direction. Your ship in turn will travel into the opposite direction. This means that players must find the perfect balance between shooting and moving to succeed. The main goal of the game is to get a high distance. This is achieved by dodging asteroids and enemies while collecting junk pieces to upgrade your ship for the next run. We have also included missions which will spice up the game play by forcing players to play in new ways.

A pretty addicting quest through the outer realms of space. Nice graphics, smooth controls, bit difficult difficult overall, but still gets you hooked easily. Nice work!


The game is a good example of an hard but addicting game. Good work.
I did encounter one problem though it seems it was fixed by a refresh of the web page. On the public high score not only were the panels for the scores slated, but the scroll also moved slantedly (off the boundary it was supposed to be on), as well as being unable to advance the page. However, as it was fixed by refreshing the page, I won't take it anything off (I would of given it 4.5 stars if that wouldn't happen).
Congrats on getting five stars

quite specific, well .. it is difficult to assess because it is not for everyone

pretty lame since i can only fly to the lower right corner. no steering at all. when clicking the blue box on the lower right corner the ship stops shooting, but i guess that's not the way the player is supposed to steer like this. Please fix that bug. since then, just a low rating because i can't play like this.

Under rated!

A novel concept and a great game.
