The third game on our website
Finally we’re adding a new game! Besides the admired "Battle City" and Pacman, we invite you to join the entertaining shooter named Galaga. Thousands of people shooting aliens for already 40 years can’t be wrong!
In October 1979 there was released a hit game named Galaxian by the Japanese Namco corporation. The shooter gained instant popularity both in Japan and North America and has gone through several sequels. Thanks to the Midway corporation, the game was re-released in USA (1981, 1984, 1987) under the name of Galaga. That is the name which is widely known by the Russian players.
Aim of the game
The essence is very simple. You’ve got a spaceship under control. This spaceship is confronted by hordes of UFOs, trying to destroy you with shots or just by colliding with you. The spaceship which you control can attack aliens controversially, and it can also move left and right to avoid collision.
By the way Namco made a real revolution in its genre, because Galaga was not only the first game in color, but also the first game where opponents do not have a strict scenario, but they have individual models of behavior. Popularity of Galaga exactly lies in this: the game seems simple, but in fact it has a difficult and complicated gameplay.
Moreover, you can watch a video by a man, who was playing Galaga for more than 4 hours and managed to reach level 384. Hope you will enjoy Galaga!
