There are also challenging logic, strategy, and resource management elements at play.
Summary: Galactrix is a game full of possibilities. Packed with places to explore, items to craft, shops to haggle in, strategies to execute, and aliens to engage in diplomacy, this match-three title throws features at you from all sides.
