Galaxian
Galaxian is another near-flawless conversion of coin-op classic for
Atari. This time the target is Namco’s revolutionary vertical shooter,
commonly regarded as the first truly multi-color video game ever made.
The gameplay is straightforward: anyone who has played Space Invaders
will know what to expect. At regular intervals, which get shorter as you
progress, the alien ships will swoop down in an attempt to zap you with
their laser pellets or kamikaze attack. Killing charging aliens score
more points than the ones flying in overhead formation. Flagships also
score more points when they have red travel companions, depending on
whether you shoot the companions first, and if you get all of them. This
PC conversion captures almost perfectly the feel of the arcade hit, minus
the range of colors. As Trixter points out in his review at MobyGames,
"...most of the Atarisoft conversions of then-classic arcade games were
flawless, and Galaxian is no exception. The lazy arc of the enemies as
they dive to fire at you is identical to the arcade. Like Galaxian? Got
an old PC? You know what to do." A must-have.
