Galaxian 1. These laser bases are used to protect our Universe from alien attack. Together, we must destroy these warmongers to maintain peace and tranquility over the Universe. The Galaxian fleet always flys in formation. As one ship descends from the extreme right or extreme left it drops deadly bombs and then returns to original position. The Galaxian leaders, Flagships, are usually flanked by protective Escorts.

You no sooner join the Intergalactic Warrior Fleet than the explosion hits. Suddenly the planet is under attack. Without prior training, you have to complete your first mission-- defending the planet. On the job combat is the only way to learn, so you have to go out there and do your duty. Shaking in your boots, you accept the assignment and board your intergalactic command ship. You soon find out that this invasion has something to do with a centuries-old interstellar war.
As a result of this war, the Galaxian government lost many planets. Now they are fighting to reclaim their lost territories. The Galaxian invasion starts off with a bang.
Instantly, an entire fleet of invaders descends toward the planet. The command ship suddenly becomes the target of a missile ambush. The Galaxian fleet is fast and strong. They attack in waves, approaching faster and faster with each wave. They swoop downward, firing laser cannons. The majority of them charge in single file; others blitz in groups. Flagships never fly alone, for they are always flanked by protective Escorts. Their colorful uniforms make their ranking order easy to identify.
Drones, the lowest rank, wear blue; Emissaries wear purple; Hornets are outfitted in red; and Flagship Commanders, the highest rank of all, wear yellow. The Galaxian fleet is smart and experienced in battle.
They have special radar that enables them to dodge intergalactic missiles. Their warfare includes tricks to divert attention. The Galaxian ability to pull off unexpected surprises forces you to use foresight and caution, plus cunning and skill. Nevertheless, the initial attack is thwarted. Use your accurate aim and quick reflexes, as well as strategy and forethought.
A foolish move could cost you the battle and the planet. In doing so, you score points--the player with the most points wins. Galaxian battle strategy is to attack in a succession of accelerating waves; each wave fiercer than the last.
Waves are depicted with flags at the top, right corner of the screen see Figure 1 for flags. One flag appears during the first wave, two flags during the second wave, and so on. You start the game with three intergalactic command ships--one at the line of battle and two reserves at the top, center of the screen as shown in Figure 1. Slide your command ship right and left to dodge Galaxian fire. At the same time, fire intergalactic missiles to protect your command ship. You lose a command ship each time it is hit by either a Galaxian missile or a collision with a Galaxian.
When all three command ships have been destroyed, the game is over. The Galaxian fleet lines up in ranking order before individually plunging down, bombarding your ship, and then flying back to the lineup.
The excitement builds as the battle gets tougher. This game requires some quick evasive action and lots of planned strategy. You never know what the Galaxian fleet has up their sleeves. Be on the lookout for just about anything. Figure 1 3. Be sure to plug the controller cables firmly into the jacks at the front of the console. Plug the controller into jack 1 for one-player games; use jacks 1 and 2 for two-player games, or let both players use the same controller.
To share a controller, simply pass the controller between turns. Before starting your first game, initiate the Galaxian fleet by pushing the joystick all the way to the right and left. Slip the tabs into the slots above and below the keypad on the controller. Your choice is displayed in the center of the screen as shown in Figure 4. Game play begins immediately after the button is pressed. Keypad buttons 0 through 9 indicate skill levels for novice and 9 for expert. After the game number is displayed on the upper, left corner of the screen see Figure 4 , the game will begin immediately.
Push the joystick right to move right; push it left to move left. Press the bottom, right or bottom, left fire button to shoot intergalactic missiles. The top, fire buttons are not used. See Figure 5 for controller use. You can probably figure it out without benefit of the actual figure.
You start the game with three command ships. A bonus command ship is earned after the first points you score. When it is your turn, your score appears at the top, center of the screen. The highest score is displayed at the bottom, left corner of the screen, and remains on the screen until the power on the console is turned off. As your skill improves and you survive beyond wave 10, the Galaxian fleet may surprise you with some special screen graphics. The easy version allows you to destroy the Galaxian fleet without them firing back at you.
The only way you can lose a turn in this version is by head-on collision with a Galaxian. Games 0 through 9 offer varying degrees of challenge; Game 0 is relatively easy and Game 9 is very difficult. The Galaxian fleet fires at you throughout these games. In the harder games they fire faster with more missiles. In some games they fire in a noticeable pattern, while in others they fire randomly.
In the case of a two-player game using two controllers, the player using jack 1 is player 1. This is your big chance to get the escorts and any other warriors that you can. This will help you develop skill and strategy. Think fast and scan the screen for methods of outsmarting the Galaxian fleet.
