Editor note
CX-5206. Rarity 1 common. North America NTSC. 1 player or 2 players alternating. When using controllers, player uses a controller in port 1 and player 2 in port 2. When using a Trak-Ball controller, each player takes turns while it stays plugged into port 1.
The game in between Space Invaders and Galaga. This version was originally announced as a "SuperSystem exclusive" but as we all know, Galaxian conversions eventually came live on most home systems. Shoot the formation of aliens and dodge their periodic kamikaze attacks. Or for the ultimate challenge ram them back (the single pixel on the tip of your ship is lethal if used precisely.)
When a flagship is destroyed the fleet will morn by not firing for a moment.
