GALAK-Z Variant S is a new free-to-play top-down space shooter now available on the eshop. Players take control of a fighter pilot who has just emerged from a space void and must help form a rebellion against the local empire with the help of a former comrade. You can play as much as you want without having to worry about waiting for energy to regenerate before you can play another level, but a steep difficulty curve and grindy upgrade parts require players unwilling to invest money in microtransaction schemes to engage in hefty amounts of grinding. You can watch Andrew (@playcritically) play the first hour below.
