2438. Eleven years after the First Ceti War. The United Interstellar Federation and a secluded alien race from Tau Ceti are locked in a tense stalemate. Fourteen of the best pilots in the Federation have been recruited to single-handedly win the inevitable second war.

Super Galaxy Squadron EX is an expansion/remaster/one-step-from-a-sequel to 2015's Super Galaxy Squadron, and takes the original game's frantic action and modern accessibility to vastly greater heights. New and returning features include:

  • Fourteen ships with unique stats and weapons to suit a variety of playstyles
  • Six stages of classic shmup action (and savage bosses) in Arcade Mode
  • An infinite onslaught to satisfy your scoring itch in Endless Mode
  • A range of difficulty options, from calm and newbie-friendly to basically impossible
  • Fully voiced cutscenes for the two people looking for a good story
  • New mechanics like Overdrive that help you kill things and get points even better
  • A (nearly) complete graphical overhaul
  • Still a whole lot of explosions (like you were ever worried)
Feeling nostalgic, or just want to see what's changed? Super Galaxy Squadron EX includes the original Super Galaxy Squadron, so load up your smaller, slightly less pretty ship for a trip down (one year old) memory lane. Or don't. It's up to you.

I have purchased Super Galaxy Squadron Classic before EX was released. How can I download EX-Version?

It doesn´t show on my Collection. You said it will be free for all who purchased SGS before EX was released.


In fact, I just bought SGS because I wanted SGS Ex. When I had known that it is such pain in the a.., then I would have waited with the purchse.

It should be in the download page for SGS, since it's a second build there rather than a separate item in the collection (from what I've seen, that's the only way to handle it, and if it's not showing up for you let me know and I can just send a code for EX)

Thank you very much. I don´t wanted to be a dick, I just like your game ;-)

Thanks again for this nice shmup and please go on with developing nice shmup´s.



Are you sure you didn't rip the source code off of an arcade machine and port it to PC? Because this is a DAMN fluid shooter!

Everything: graphics, sounds, controls, mechanics, everything is near-perfect!

I don't know what else to say. Love it!
