Galaxian Namco Limited / Atarisoft 1983

Release Date: 1983 Galaxian is a shoot 'em up in which the player is at the bottom of the screen, with an arrangement of aliens at the top. It's a port of the popular 1979 arcade game which was designed as a competitor to Space Invaders. A later sequel, Galaga, also proved very popular. The player moves left and right to aim at an alien, then shoots a bullet up the screen, and the alien it hits is killed. The aliens are classed as Drones, Emissaries, Hornets and Commanders, with those higher up the screen scoring more points when destroyed. At set intervals an enemy will move down the screen towards you, escorting a bomber, which is a moment of high danger. Clear a wave and another is generated.
