The description at CHAMP Games Fan Page says it all about this excellent remake of ATARI’s classic arcade shooter Galaxian: |
"A great version of the famous arcade classic game - CHAMP Galaxia. Based on CHAMP Galaxian, this version offers superb graphics, Soundblaster support and enhanced gameplay that truly makes you feel like you're in an arcade! A completely re-designed user interface is now easier and more powerful than before. A complete remake of the look and feel has created a truly enjoyable game.
The object of CHAMP Galaxia is to destroy the Galaxian fleet and save the earth. With each ship you destroy, you score points.
....The Galaxian fleet attacks in waves, each one harder than the last. Flags are used to show that a wave has been destroyed. You must pilot the command ships right and left to dodge Galaxian attacks while firing back to destroy the aliens. When a Flagship is destroyed while in flight the rest of the fleet stops firing for a few seconds of mourning.
Get ready to destroy the Galaxian fleet and save the earth. Note that there are two different game modes: Classic mode plays more like the arcade game, CHAMP Mode includes the Classic Mode with more enhancements, including more patterns, shields, and different enemies!"
CHAMP games are notable for excellent graphics, faithful recreation of arcade originals, and a smooth, addictive gameplay that brings the much-loved classic to a new generation of gamers, as well as old-timers who will enjoy the CHAMP levels. If you love the arcade original, you will doubtless enjoy this wonderful remake from one of the best shareware companies in the business. Two thumbs up, way up!
