A Simple, Yet Addicting 80's Arcade
5 September 2005 | by (someplace) – See all my reviews

Today when you go to arcade arenas, you may find an old box shaped machine in the corner of the room. In this box is a screen with an outer space setting, featuring a space ship at the bottom of the screen and aliens flying above it. This machine is the arcade of Galaga.

This was huge back in the 80's. For today's standards, the graphics are simple and there isn't a whole lot that you have to do. That's what makes it fun. While strategy games are difficult and often realistic, it's more fun to play older, simpler games where you can escape reality and play as a little figure on a screen. In this game, you must fight off the galagans in order to defend your planet. This game is very similar to Space Invaders, which is another excellent game. In this game, the Galagans can fly in circular patterns, making it difficult to destroy them, and certain ones can beam you up in order to capture you.

This game may not be real advanced for today's standards, but it's addicting and fun. Out of all the games I've played at an arcade arena, I've never had so much fun as I've had playing this. If you haven't played this yet, find it at an arcade center. While you're at it, try to find Asteroids and Space Invaders at the same time.

Have fun playing. Go to the arcade center and save your world, destroy the galagans before they take over.
