Galaxian on the Atari 7800 really looks like a fantastic conversion/port!

Galaxian has appeared on Indie Retro News a few times over the years, especially as it is one particular Arcade classic that homebrew developers love making clones of with special effects and bonus power ups added. Well this time we are going back to the original hit from 1979, as PacManPlus is aiming to bring that retro shoot em up classic over to the Atari 7800 with all the nostalgia intact such as the sound effects and animated enemy waves.

According to the wikpedia for this game "Galaxian was Namco's first major arcade video game hit. It was the second highest-grossing arcade game of 1979 and 1980 in Japan, and the second highest-grossing arcade game of 1980 in the United States, where it became one of the best-selling arcade games of all time with 50,000 arcade units sold by 1982. The game was celebrated for its gameplay and usage of true color graphics". So yes certainly a great game for the Atari 7800, and from the look of the latest update on the AtariAge forums this might actually be the final version!
