Galaxian/Galaga series - Cane and Rinse 388

Post by JaySevenZero »



October 1979 saw Namco’s brash, dynamic and eye-scorchingly colourful Space Invaders spiritual successor landed with a loud bang in arcades. Leon, Michiel and guest Dan Clark recall the thrill of swooping alien robo-moths and – tracing the Galaxian series along – the power-fantasy fulfilment of double ship and even triple ship play in Galaga and Galaga ’88. Along with contributions from the community we also look at many more sequels and spin-offs, popular culture cameos and incoming cartoons from the world of Namco’s enduring space blaster lineage.

Music used in this issue:

1. Galaxian sound FX – Namco

2. Name Entry music – Galaga ’88
