Images of Galaga

Images of Galaga

The Xbox Live Arcade title Galaga was released earlier today for a price of 400p, and Microsoft released these images to show you some more of the game. The demo is of course free and who doesn't want to try out this classic?

In addition it does not have Xbox Live gaming.

Crappy game, wouldn't pay a dollar for that. Frogger was also really bad. I'm waiting for good Arcade Games.

nice classic... good challenge... I will download as soon as I'm arriving home

First Frogger, now Galaga, next pacman... Keep coming them all! ;)

I liked the achievements for Frogger... I hope galaga have good achievements too.

I remember this one from the old days.. Was a really popular arcadegame, you saw it everywhere, from arcadehalls to hotellobbies.. :)

I'll play the trail-version for sure, and then make my mind up if I'm gonna buy this..

And here I am thinking images of Street Fighter 2 was insane.
This is more insane. LOL!

I love seeing "New Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting Images" and can someone tell me why I click on the damn link?

I love the "How to Play" screen! Is it really that hard to figure out?

I'm not sure that's true. Two things happened in the demo that I never remember seeing before in any version of Galaga: 1) The enemies "pulse" and scale bigger/smaller, trippy effect; 2) One of my ships was "captured" and then started shooting back at me.

I will buy it.

Old games like this should really only cost 200 points , i'll stick with the demo and use my points on bigger games like SF2...

I hated it on NES,i hated it on XBL arcade,shame,cause everyone else has told me good things and has good memories of this classick.

Well this, if anything, is an ancient relic of gaming. What did you expect? It's like dusting off a muzzle-loading pee shooter from 1882 (its not a rifle, there was no rifling in the barrel) and expecting a 50cal sniper rifle.

But ouch, that static, razor-sharp, high contrast background will hurt some older plasma screens.

And also, I'd like to get the option for the non-bilinear upscale (called power of two) as seen in the "how to play" screens. Blurry pixels dont do it for me.

It's amazing how difficult it is for these people to quadruple one pixel into four without filtering.

I guess I was the only one expecting original content on XBLA because it seems everyone's comfortable with overpriced rehashes

We're getting original content too. If they cancel all these arcade ports it wouldn't make the other games get finished any faster.

I think some of these overpriced rehashes are a fun way to use XBLA in between releases of real games like Cloning Clyde and Mutant Storm Empire.

these old old arcade games will catch the attention of people that alredy went through that face of videogames.. Me on the other hand my very first console was an atari 2600 and after that was the 16-bit world..
Thats why some people dont like these games! there is no past conecting them (incuding my self).. To us is just another really old game.

My first was a Nintendo I sat on it all day to play super mario and ghost & goblins. Galaga is awsome!! I had Namco Museum for N64 and bet my older cousin for money I could get to level 24 and up and still today he ows me 205$ ;)

Looks fun!
Commented on 2006-07-27 12:41:07
Hmmm if this is the quality of games coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade at those prices then people are going to look to the Wii. I'd rather pay them prices for an old Nes game than Galaga and Pac-Man

Here are my questions to Microsoft in a list!
1. Why would you make people pay for games they played years ago?
2. Why do you make us pay for crap that already cost as much as our cable bill?
3. Why is Bill Gates so happy with all that money? hmm....

I don't think they can make you do anything, but you did state that "Galaga is awesome!!"

The rest of your questions deserve no answer.
