About The Game

"GALAXIAN" is a shooting game released by NAMCO (Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.) in 1979.

You control a GALAXIP and shoot aliens that approach you in eerie curves. Aliens during the assault double your score, and the flagship (GALBOSS) can be shot at in turn, starting with the escort (RED ALIEN), for a higher score.

Deftly dodge enemy aliens and destroy the large formation.

The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.

Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.

Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.

*This game uses the Japanese ROM for the main part of the game.

The options menu and manual are available in Japanese, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
