In the far future the peaceful moon of Lygon has been invaded by an robotic alien race known as the Vorians. The inhabitants of the moon, the Poloids, have been kidnapped and are being held as hostages. Galactic Dan Quicksmart, an agent of the United Planets Bureau of Investigations is being sent to the moon to rescue the hostages. On his mission he has to search through ruined cities, cave dwellings and Vorian installations while watching out for the robot guardians that are programmed to kill anyone that opposes them.

Galactic Dan is an early first person shooter featuring ray traced graphics. The game is controlled with the mouse that the player uses to shoot, run, jump and look around. There are 24 maze-like levels and the objective of each of them is to rescue a set number of hostages and find the exit before the time runs out. At the same time the player has to shoot down or avoid the many enemies that guard the hostages. The mission is failed when the player's energy reaches zero or when time runs out. The player gets a score based on how hostages are rescued, enemies killed and time left. It's possible to save more hostages than are required to finish the level.
