Summary

The Commodore 64 finally gets a good version of Galaga that it always deserved with Arlasoft’s implementation of this arcade classic. A lot of attention to detail has been spent to ensure that the game plays as close as possible to the arcade version while still looking and feeling like a C64 game.

Most avid fans of the arcade game are in raptures over Galaga 64 and even though I am not the greatest fan of porting games that are readily available elsewhere – it is hard to deny that this is well done even if the shooting mechanism feels a little sticky and the game contains the odd glitch here and there.
