Galaxian variants

Group Description

Galaxian, developed by Namco in 1979, was the first major evolution in shoot'em'ups after Taito's Space Invaders. In Galaxian, the player ship moves left and right at the bottom of the screen, while an assortment of aliens sit in formation at the top. One after one, the aliens comes swooping down, firing at the player. Different aliens have differing flight patterns; some flying in wide circles, some in tight circles and some diving straight at the player. An alien "flagship" appears from time to time, granting bonus points if shot down.
