Two Namco Bandai game franchises, the space shooter Galaga and the fighting game TEKKEN, get mashed together in a new game for the iPhone and iPad.

Galaga : TEKKEN 20th Anniversary Edition

Galaga : TEKKEN 20th Anniversary Edition is a free game designed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the TEKKEN series by putting its characters inside a version of the classic Galaga space shooter. Here's what players can expect from this odd mashup:

Tekken and Galaga are teaming up! Take control of the fighters from Tekken as they join the world of Galaga for a frantic shooting game frenzy like you've never experienced! Fight back against the endless onslaught by swiping left and right to blow them to bits!

Devastate your foes with incredible team attacks! Fight to take back your allies back from the Boss! If you're successful the two of you will merge to form one amazing tag team attack! With old school characters appearing from the Namco classic arcade series take out all your enemies in one go!

Amazing new characters! Overwhelm your enemies with Lili's rapid-fire, blast a hole in their ranks with Claudio's piercing shots, or smash them to bit's with Heihachi's giant headbutt! Keep clearing stages to unlock more characters!

But beware, your enemies have increased their ranks too. Watch out for King and his squadron of wrestlers! Face the heavyweight triple thread of Bob, Ganryu and Jack! Xiaoyu, Panda and Alisa! And many, many more! It all leads up to a final showdown against the Mishima Family. Can you shoot your way to victory?

In addition, some characters from other Namco Bandai games, such as Pac-Man, are available as unlockable bonuses.
