Personal review

The Galaxian Famicom Disk System version could only be obtained via the Disk Writer method where you bought an empty disk and could copy a game for a small fee at certain copy stations/kiosks. The game is identical to the cartridge version with the exception of different copyright dates on the title screen. In the six years that lay between the cartridge and disk versions much happened in the video game industry. Sure, the disk version was much cheaper and the gameplay has the same classic feel to it but in 1990 this game already must have been mostly played out of nostalgic feelings I would guess.

Official description

The Galaxian Fleet has invaded and it's up to you to stop them. There's two-way action in this game; as you fire at them, they're firing back at you! All that is required of you is quick reflexes and an accurate aim. Can you destroy the Galaxian Fleet before they destroy you?
