Galaxian is a classic Space Invaders inspired player vs. Aliens shoot-'em-up, released in 1979.

Its one of my earliest memories of Arcade Gaming, watching my sister playing it whilst i kept trying to bash the button.

I played Galaxian on my old windows '95 computer, good times,

A curious fact: Once Galaga came out it was so popular Galaxian was inferior, so instead of selling the extra Galaxian cabinets they already had, they converted them into Galaga Cabinets, although not extremely "rare" original Galaxians are less common than most of the popular games.
