Galaga

Galaga

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.

  1. The Best Game Classic

  2. Why is it so freaking FAST? This is like the original game on speed, caffeine, and NO2 all at once.

    • I don’t like the speed, I can get in a bunch of shots and destroy some fighters, but when they come down at you, they crash straight into you; and you never get a chance!!! >__<

      • Yes that does happens

        • The things wrong with this version:
          -There are no challenging stages
          -Everything (except you) Is way too fast
          -The enemies don’t die if they run into you
          -The sound is absolutely horrendous

    • Yes agreed! Way too fast! Also if you fail to shoot the Galaga alien who captures your fighter (can’t too fast!!), fighter disappears after one pass of the screen. That was not a feature of the original game. Had this on my Xbox 360 but not supported now on Xbox One so really missing this game, anybody know of any other versions?

  3. The enemies were moving WAAAAAAY TOO FAST, there was no option to mute the music (because I have my own music to listen to and as much as I like the music, I like mine better) , there was no way that I could tell to pause the game, so you’re in it till you die, and you have to hit space EVERY TIME you want to shoot, if you hold it doesn’t do jack sh*t

    overall: I like the game, but I’d rather find an arcade and play it there than play it here

  4. tooo fast!!! impossible to play

  5. Great game dudes!

    Most excellent music too!

    Bugs are:

    1. Game takes too long to start.
    2. Double spaceship won’t move side to side.

    Thanks for fixin’ it, dudes!
    See you in San Dimas.

  6. Whoever made this must have never played the original. The aliens move twice as fast as they did in the original game.

    This version is horrible.

  7. Way to fast; imposssible to play. Played the arcade game last night; no comparison.

  8. I was looking for traditional galaga to play

  9. I Loveit

  10. What is the point of making this game ? It is way too fast…. stupid, love this game so much.

  11. this game is awesome i would poo all over it

  12. about 10x the speed of the original. I had the full size arcade game as a kid. Bummer!

  13. Galaga is so fast it’s impossible to play for more than a minute. Is there a way to slow it down?
    Thank you.

  14. well then if you dont like ,FuCK OFF and play a different one then-BITCHES

  15. Your game is flawed. If you make it to only 1 mothership on the board, and no other ships, the game shuts down.

  16. these games are pretty good, bringing back the memories! anyone know where I can find online wizball? awesome game from the early 90′s

  17. I was the midwest states champion on Galaga back in the day. On this game I can’t get through the fourth screen. What the hell is up with the speed. This is closer to the 60 to 70th level on the original old game.

  18. Hey .. its really fast on my Mac .. is there any way to slow the game down?

    • Thanks for mentioning you are on a Mac… we’re aware of the comments regarding speed but have not been able to replicate it as a problem (on any platform). It plays fine to us, and is pretty fast, but that’s how we remember it. We can’t adjust the speed unfortunately.
