Description: As a spaceship moving left to right at the bottom of the screen, shoot up at enemies as they enter, assemble in formation and fly down at you. If you allowed an alien to capture one of your ships in its tractor beam, you could shoot the foe later and double your fire power! Moving along the bottom of the screen, you shoot at the enemies (either in formation or as they fly about). Most enemies are destroyed by one hit, but the Galagas take two hits (they turn blue when hit once). You must avoid being hit by enemies and their fire.

" My mommy tells me not to accept rides from strangers. Galaga is to Galaxian what Sonic the Hedgehog is to the traditional platformer. Seriously, Namco sped the gameplay up so that it's Galaxian on cheap trucker speed. The protagonist spaceship can turn left and right faster than the speed of light, right?
