During the heyday of arcade gaming, when games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong were sweeping the globe, Galaxian made its debut. Galaxian was unique because of its creative gameplay. By allowing foes to break formation and swoop down on the player's ship, it offered a fresh concept and produced a dynamic and exciting gaming experience.
In Galaxian, players were entrusted with protecting Earth from waves of alien invaders while controlling a spaceship at the bottom of the screen. The player had the ability to turn left or right and fire projectiles against the approaching alien fleet. Galaxian was unique, but the adversary behavior was equally as important as the game's mechanics. Galaxian was more difficult and entertaining than its predecessor Space Invaders because of the aliens' more intricate movement patterns.
