Its based on a similar concept to space invaders
Apparently, according to its name, this is a Galaxian clone. Aside from the fact that you control a space ship and shoot enemies, this game contains little or no resemblance to the original. The graphics don't even remotely resemble the arcade game, none of the enemies fly down the screen and there are no bonus levels.
As soon as you execute the executable file, you are thrown straight into the action and before you know it hundreds upon hundreds of enemy bullets are flying towards you. The game play, in short, is fast and furious - which is a complete contrast to the slow and steady original. Oddly enough, the game play is one of its best strengths. There are power-ups, shields and bombs to collect to help spice things up a bit. Unfortunately the amount of levels in this game is quite small, which means it will not take long to finish (I managed to finish it on my first try, within the ten minute mark).
The graphics, while nothing like the original, are still quite decent and the explosive sound effects only enhances the frantic game play. It is a pity this game wasn't designed with many more (and much harder) levels - because it would have saved it from being below par. With its short length, you will most likely get tired of this game awfully quickly.
This game looks nice. It's quite dynamic and the graphics look quite good for a 2D shoot 'em up. But there are too many shields and stuff happening in the first levels.
This makes it a bit naff, and the star field backdrop moves so quick that your eyes go funny.
However Mr Programmer, it seems well programmed and with a few tweeks it could be very cool!
Very poor game, much better available elsewhere. Just a matter of dodging fast missiles, space ships don't attack, just stationary. The game crashed within two minutes, so I uninstalled it. Avoid!
Galaxian was the first full color arcade game. It was made by Namco back in 1979. Its based on a similar concept to space invaders but has some slightly better features and graphics.
Galaxian was worse than any other game that I've played, even a rubbish one. I think you should delete this game from Acid-Play, it is putting you down.
This is the greatest game ever. I can't stop playing it. Just like the real Galaxian Game. You are the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The best classic game. My favorite, I love it and my father loves it as well. I will never replace it with anything.
