Galaga - Manual

DescriptionSubmit Description
Based on the insanely-popular Namco space shooting coin-op, this version was designed by GCC (General Computer Corporation) in 1984. GCC is the same company that designed the 7800 system for Atari. Besides the fun gameplay, this game's greatest selling point when it was released was the fact that this title was not available on the 2600 or 5200. The 7800 was known for excellent adaptations of arcade games, but this game gets a little ?wiggy? around level 10 when the enemy speed increases. This seems to only bother Galaga purists. The game's graphics are good but the audio is poor. (Contributed by Cousin Vinnie Vineyard)
