Galaxian®

Do you remember those simple arcade video games which involved spaceships and aliens with space as the background? These arcade games were very popular and were a huge success. These games laid the basic idea for many games being produced nowadays.

Galaxian® is also such an arcade game. Released in 1983, this game is a fixed shooter-style game in which the player controls a spaceship at the bottom of the screen and shoots enemies descending from various directions.

The Gameplay

The gameplay of Galaxian® is very simple. Swarm after swarm of alien armies attacks the player’s ship that moves left and right at the bottom of the wraparound screen. The ship only has one shot at a time. The player defeats one swarm, only to have it replaced by another more aggressive and challenging army in the next screen. A colorful star field scrolls in the background.

There are rows of ships floating back and forth at the top of the screen. Small groups of them will periodically break formation and fly to the bottom of the screen kamikaze-style. These are the only ships that can fire at you, and they can kill you either by running into you or by shooting you. Your objective is to destroy all of them before they manage to destroy you. This process repeats and gets more difficult steadily.

Strategy

You can only have one shot on the screen at a time, meaning that if you are firing at something at the top of the screen, you’ll have to wait a second or two before you can fire again.

Difficulty Levels

There are an infinity number of levels in this game. You have three lives. After you lose all your lives the game will end.

Interface and Controls

The interface and controls of the game are very easy. Arrow keys are used to move the spaceship while a control button is used to attack the enemy ship.

Galaxian® is a very simple game. Its unique gameplay sets it apart from other spaceship games. This game is very addictive and is enjoyed by anyone who plays it.
