Pax Galaxia for Mac1.15.3

An intergalactic re-imagining of the popular board game Risk.

What is Pax Galaxia for Mac

Note: Pax Galaxia is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

Pax Galaxia is a fast-paced and addictive real-time strategy game based on the popular board game Risk. You will be amazed at the strategic depth of this game, even if it is extremely easy to learn and play. Conquer stars; break up and force your enemies fleets to surrender; carry out rapid attacks and tactical retreats, and more!

Meh, tried it a while ago, but I'm not sure this one is really worth registering. I'll have to give it another shot and see if my first impressions were off.

The demo is good and it makes a change that this Risk type game is in real-time rather than turn based. The graphics are simple but eye-catching. The presence of a map editor is good as it extends the life of the game. There is also a good on-line community to play against. So lots of game for your buck (or in my case pound sterling)!

I feel strongly related to space battles and am just in the right mood for this kind of game. With a strong imagination the experience is amazing. And even without it is good for wasting some hours. And if the key doesn't work, send a mail to contact@diogames.com which contains the key and get a new one. And now I have to lose myself again...

Seems neat. I dig games that, on the face of it, appear easy but increase in difficulty and require something more than quick reflexes (not to say that such games aren't fun, but a change every now and again is welcome).

For some time now I've played the Lux Deluxe and it is a really cool game! I also tried the American History which is a great add-on. These are well-designed games that offer updates from time to time. I see that now I should try the Pax Galaxia. If it is as good as the Lux it's worth a try.

First of all, I'm impressed that the developer has posted a comment and so helpful. But the reason for this post is that I have downloaded and played the demo in the past and want to endorse it as an enjoyable game. It has great replay value, for the amount of play-time you'll have, is well worth it.

This piece of software has been taking 80% of my gaming time since 2005. Addictive? Yes, indeed. It happens more or less in this way: you beat some levels at normal, then go up and up to Expert. Then you discover that you are facing the first A.I. in the world where "I" means "Intelligence" and not "Incredible dumbness". Then you get kicked real hard. And again. And one more time, even harder. You want revenge, so time for new tactics: retreat on a green star, attack from there and swamp the enemy. Not enough, need more ships earlier. Then balance for a while, capture some ships in a blue-purple binary system, then go. Finally: victory. But this was playing with greens, what would have happened with reds? Not to mention the random galaxies: with some of them you really can't win... maybe. Oh, right, this jewel works perfectly fine on computers three generations old: another demonstration that advanced graphics is mostly a way to disguise the absolute lack of good ideas.

This is a simple but deep game of strategy with beautiful intuitive controls and stylized graphics. You could think of it perhaps as a cross between "Risk" and "Go". It is highly addictive once you figure it out. Unfortunately, the online manual and guides don't spell out the basic rules of the game very clearly and I ended up discovering important details by fooling around with the easy levels. Most importantly, you need to realize that you must aim to *capture* enemy forces by isolating them before defeating them. Defeating a position which offers escape routes allows (almost) all of the defeated forces to restrengthen immediately and to regroup. That same fact can be exploited beautifully for defensive strategies. I didn't warm to the real-time aspect of the game and ended up using the "pause" button systematically to play it more like a turn-based game. I'm sure books could be written about this game and its strategies, but the developers should start by improving their documentation first. As it is, it may take a new user some effort to appreciate this wonderful game despite its simplicity.

Yawn. This may have been worth 20 bucks 15 years ago. But, all you are really doing is funneling ships around. Try it for yourself but, don't get your hopes up. No way I'd ever pay a dime for this.
