Galaga was the sequel to Galaxian – which in turn was a response to Space Invaders. Both games introduced ‘swooping’ aliens and featured full colour graphics (unlike Space Invaders), but Galaga gets our vote for being more fun to play. You can fire two shots at once, and the gameplay holds up well today. It’s a great game… and great fun to play! TIP: Hit the space bar to get started once the game is launched.
