Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Arcade version of Galaga appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Release

Galaga was one of the "Fabulous Eleven" launch games for the Atari 7800.

Xbox 360 version

Unlike other Xbox Live! Arcade titles, Galaga includes no additional features or enhancements, just the leaderboards, achievements and some art shown on the sides of the screen. That's unusual, as games like Frogger have a new two-player mode, and Namco had already developed an improved version of Galaga for Namco Museum Battle Collection.
