the difference that i see from the final version

 

date on start up still 1982

when the aliens fly off the screen ( and come back on) the screen shows 2 aliens for a second or 2.

also not every time but after a round it sometimes kills u . and u loose a life.

 

im doing this on a black and white tv so color might be different.

the sound is about the same i dont notice any differences.

 

also the text looks normal and the point system seems normal.

Unlike the 1983 version, The lines that flash next to it doesnt do so right now.

Umm... It's a WIP version of Galaxian. I told you this already. What else do you want me to say? :?

 

And it's Tempest or Matt, not 'Tempy' :ponder:

And why couldn't the 8-bit Galaxian have had the nice text graphic like the 2600 version?

Programmers preference I guess. There's no reason other than the programmer chose not to put it in.

 

Looks like a legit proto to me. Congrats.
