Thank you very much for pointing out that i would not be able to use my QUERTZ for this game. So i will gladly pass and maybe there will be an AZERTY comment soon passing through, who knows. We should get those developers some heads up.

Vielen lieben Dank Stephen.

Burni,

Hi Burni, I use a QWERTZ keyboard. It is a gaming keyboard, that has different keyboard layouts programmed into it (Razer Black Widow Ultimate Stealth), so I've been able to select the keyboard most comfortable for what I'm used to. It meant detaching the appropriate keys and placing them in the new positions.

Ah ok, that is a nice feature! But on the other Hand, i need Multimedia Keys like on my Cherry MX Board 3.0, which i can reach fast and use with one hand. I guess that with the Razer Black Widow i would have to use both hands. A problem nearly all the 394 different keyboards on the market are sharing.

And the price, of course. :) Keyboards are expensive like Swarovski-diamond-lined DDR4 memory.
Not worth it for me - and not for this one game here. ^^

Burni,

Hi Burni,

I like the Cherry MX Board 3.0 and have considered buying one as it is slightly cheaper than the Razer. When my latest Razer gives out I may just invest in one. Does it feel well built? I do like the feel of mechanical keys as opposed to the membrane keyboards that are common these days.

The Razer Black widow range have a function key that allows you to change the function of any key plus it also includes five memory keys so that you can program your keyboard with five distinct keyboard layouts. It's one of the many reasons I opted for the Razer Ultimate Stealth keyboard as not only is it a mechanical keyboard, the keys are extremely sensitive, meaning that they only require a slight touch to activate, plus you can activate several keys at the same time if you are dexterous enough. The F keys are also labelled with multimedia functions.

If you like the sensitive feel of your Razer keys then try the MX Red versions.. MX Red has 45grams pressure! I had tested the MX Red and it might work well for you. I got the Cherry MX Board with MX Blacks (65grams) for a cheap 36€ and those keys are much better... really perfect for me!

The real downside of the MX-Board 3.0 is the lack of LED lighting. Some external light to write is necessary, i always miss the u, i, o, p in the dark linux terminal.. And thats the only thing i would complain about this keyboard. I may get some white keys with black markings or some keyboard stickers later if i ever feel like it.

Oh and yes, it feels pretty much well built. Also, a real PCB with soldered components inside. Typing sounds are not too loud.

Burni,

Ah yes, the lighting. I'd forgotten about that.

That would definitely have to be a prerequisite if I was to purchase a Cherry. Not multicloured ones though as i find those a little too distracting (though I like the idea of being able to program specific keys if there are lots of different key bindings required for example, one of my helicopter sims has over 300 key bindings and combinations., so colour coding would be a useful thing to have, but generally as mentioned above i'd find it too distracting..

I have two Black Widow keyboards, one with blue back lighting and one with Green. One is a Ultimate Stealth version and the other is an Ultimate. Apart from the back lighting, the only other difference is the noise made when you depress the mechanical keys. The Ultimate Stealth version is much quieter than the ultimate version; (almost as quiet as a membrane version).

The Game:
I have an important meeting with my solicitor this morning and will be out very early. When I return I will endevour to update the review, but no promises.
Galactic Battles is a nicely rendered simple vertical scrolling shmup (space shoot em up) that is a perfect starter game for those who are not used to playing faster or more difficult shmups. The reason I say that galactic battles is a great starter game is because there are loads of power-ups available; usually one for almost every enemy ship you hit, {at least once you've progress a few moments into the game}. These power-ups resupply/repair your shields, as well as repair any damage you've incurred and resupplies you with rockets that do more damage than the standard lasers, and mega bombs that when they hit are like small nuclear explosions, destroying everything within the blast radius. The rockets can be stored up to a maximum of 10 rockets. The game appears to be an endless single level as I kept going for around 15 minutes, slowly speeding up, both in fire rate and the speed at which my ship appeared to be moving through space.
Galactic-Battles-004

Galactic-Battles-005
The two main gripes I have with this game are that initially it feels a little sluggish, especially when trying to pick up the early power ups; however, once you've been going for a few minutes, it's obvious that the game is slowly speeding up as your rate of fire increases until it appears to be a continuous stream, but in actual fact is still individual laser pulses. You can keep your LMB depressed to keep a continuous rate of fire going. You can see all the key bindings in the third image above. These are unfortunately not editable. The second gripe is that there isn't much variety in the weapons you get and despite there being masses of power ups, especially when the game has sped up significantly, apart from a faster rate of fire, there doesn't appear to be any other upgrades to different weapons, also, the variety of enemy ships isn't that great. This was made with the free Construct 2 engine, which possibly explains the lack of variety. That said, don't let this put you off trying this game. Despite having hundreds of shmups, I will be keeping this one as it is one of the only shmups I've played over the years where I could survive for almost 15 minutes without losing a ship.

Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:
Thanks to Delenn for the heads up on Dog Duty an isometric real time tactical game that's free on Steam HERE at the moment. The deal ends next Monday, on the 11th November 2019. Don't forget that Epic Games have two new games to give away this week, i.e. Nuclear Throne a post-apocalyptic rogue-like top-down shooter and Ruiner a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. Next weeks game starting on the 14th November is called The Messenger a classic action platformer with the main protagonist being a ninja. The game soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor. Finally check out the forum thread I've posted HERE regarding a share of the rewards for subscribing to the Humble Monthly bundle. Though Delenn has mentioned that the Monthly bundle will be changing soon.
For anyone interested in trying out the Elder Scrolls Online for free. They have a free to play event that ends on the 13th November HERE. I play ESO regularly and have clocked well over several thousand hours since the Beta program back in 2013. A brilliant role playing game IMO. I've recently posted a review/ my thoughts on the game over in the forums HERE.
