galaxian game

Go retro tonight and play the classic arcade shooter Galaxian all night long. Shoot down the invading aliens with your hi-tech space ship in this old-school arcade. How long will you be able to delay your inevitable defeat against the endless swarm of alien invaders? Good luck and have fun trying to win the highest score.

Galaxian is a classic retro-shooter video game that was developed and published by Namco, and was released back in 1979 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The game was released back-to-back with the more popular Galaga. However, Galaxian was developed and released earlier and has fewer features than its more popular brother, which is the game's successful sequel. Gameplay-wise, Galaxian is relatively simple. The player takes control of a space ship found at the bottom of the screen. A group of aliens, in a convenient array, will slowly descend downward, and the player's goal is to shoot down all alien lifeforms before they get to touch the bottom of the screen where the player's ship is located. After defeating a swarm of alien, the group will then be replaced by another batch with even more aggressive ships and tougher hulls. The game repeats the cycle until the player can no longer protect the ship.
