Galaxian is an arcade fixed shooter game developed by Namco and released 1979 and later imported to North America by Midway. In 1981 a sequel to Galaxian was released called Galaga. You can play it on our Free Galaga site.
How to Play
You control a spaceship named the 'Galaxip', and must destroy the aliens on each stage to go on to the next.
The enemy ships appear in horizontal formation near the top of the screen. There are two escort ships, called the 'Galaxian Flagship' or the 'Galboss'.
The Galaxip has limitations to its fire power. Unlike the enemy ships, it can only fire a single shot and you must wait for that shot to disappear before you can fire another.
The flagships can divebomb with two red escort ships. If you manage to shoot all three you will be awarded bonus points, with additional points awarded for destroying the flagship. As the game progresses the enemy ships will manoeuvre faster and can fire an increase number of shots.
The games stages are indicated by red flags in the bottom right of the screen.
