If you really like Space Invaders but sometimes wish those aliens would move a bit faster in the first few levels, it might be a good time to try out Galaxian, especially this portable Galaxian remake from MinionSoft(Select Arcade from the menu on the left).
This game will keep you on your toes! First of all, these speedy aliens are seriously intent on invasion and are well prepared with plenty of ammunition to spare. Adding to the challenge is the lack of cover – there’s no hiding from aliens in this game! Although, if you need a very quick breather, you can sneak over to the extreme left and right of the screen where alien firepower can’t reach, but make it quick: the aliens are moving in fast!
If that wasn’t enough challenge, the aliens don’t all stay fixed in their swarm pack as in Space Invaders. You have continuous assaults from fighters leaving the pack and moving in close challenging you to out-maneuver not only falling bombs from the swarm but also these wild flyers. The starry background scrolls vertically too, adding to all that action.
