How Galacide blends bullet hell shoot-em-ups with match-three puzzles

Watch on YouTube | Subscribe to Polygon on YouTube

Galacide is the perfect game for that person in your life who was born with two discrete brains in their skull. It blends elements from bullet hell shoot-em-ups and match-three puzzle games, both of which require your full attention if you hope to survive the wall of enemy ships and multicolored blocks flying at you. The obvious problem: You've only got so much attention to go around.

Check out the Overview above to see myself and Nick — we've got about one and one-third brain between us — try to make headway in Galacide. If you've got some spare lobes, you can try Galacide for yourself on Steam.
