If you had the chance to play the first game of this kind, the Space Invaders, you would undoubtedly enjoy playing the classic Galaxian game! Let's see what's this all about.

Similar to its original predecessor, the game is based on the same concept. You should use your spaceship to defeat an enemy horde of aliens. Your mission is to pass through the increasingly difficult levels while preserving your available life-points, with the goal of scoring the highest possible score.

How to play the game

The game controls are fairly straightforward. You only need to maneuver your ship left or right using the corresponding arrow keys. For shooting at the enemies, you should use the spacebar key.

The primary objective in each level is to shoot down all the enemies, as they approach you. At times, this can turn to be quite a challenging task, since the aliens are continuously moving from one side to the other of the screen. You will need good aiming skills to succeed.

Some of the enemies are also able to shoot back at you, so you also have to take care not to be hit by any projectile. Each time you get hit, you will lose one life-point from a total of four which you have at the beginning of the game.

What else you should know

If you allow the enemies to get too close to your spaceship, they will start moving even faster, making it even harder for you to take them down. This is why it is advisable to shoot them down while they are at a considerable distance.

Do not get intimated by their movements, and try to take down first the ones that are shooting at you. This way, it would be easier to take care of the rest.

At the bottom of the game screen, you can also see your score and how many life-points do you still have left. There are also some game controls available, which you can use to Pause, Restart, or turn the sound on/off.

Enjoy playing this retro game and try to compete against your friends for the highest score!

Good Luck!
