GalaxyMage is a tactical/strategic RPG. A tactical RPG is a type of role-playing game where turn-based battles are fought on a 3D map. Examples of commercial tactical RPGs include Final Fantasy Tactics, Vandal Hearts, and Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. GalaxyMage is designed to be relatively simple to pick up and play without getting bogged down in the details of the battle mechanics. But it also allows for a lot of character development and customization.

Release Notes: Random map and scenario generators have been added. The AI has been improved significantly: it is much stronger and uses a wide variety of different attacks. New character classes have been added. The engine now supports a wide variety of new status effects; new abilities that use some of these effects have also been added. There are many user interface improvements, most notably joystick support and support for canceling a unit's movement if it has not yet attacked. Terrain smoothing has also been added, which makes slopes on maps look much nicer.
