Alternate Title

The arcade classic Galaxian was programmed by Bally (Midway), but because Midway only possessed arcade distribution rights and wasn't able to distribute home console versions of the game, it was instead released with the title Galactic Invasion for the Astrocade. That said, there are some revisions of the game that do feature the title Galaxian on the title screen or on the physical cartridge itself.
