Commodore VIC-20 - Released - 1984

Galaxian is a shoot 'em up in which the player is at the bottom of the screen, with an arrangement of aliens at the top.

The aliens are classed as Drones, Emissaries, Hornets and Commanders, with those higher up the screen scoring more points when destroyed. At set intervals an enemy will move down the screen towards you, escorting a bomber, which is a moment of high danger. Clear a wave and another is generated.
