Galaga - An awesome Arcade classic over to the C64 by Arlasoft gets a release

We've featured Galaga on Indie Retro News a number of times already, from the Atari 2600 port to the excellent demake on the Amiga by Pink and Fade One. Well fast forward to today however and after already featuring a number of previews prior to this one, Arlasoft has released the final version of his awesome Arcade to C64 conversion of the 1981 classic 'Galaga'; A game that was originally published by Namco Japan and by Midway in North America.

Galaga was developed and published by Namco Japan and by Midway in North America in 1981 as the sequel to the 1979 game Galaxian. The game puts you in control of a mighty spaceship that must destroy waves of enemy formations that are out to destroy or capture you. As for the new version released by Arlasoft, he has done a very detailed write up on his main site, but sufficed to say if you loved this classic game all those years ago at the Arcades, you'll love it on your C64!

Please note there will be no articles tomorrow, as it's my Birthday! YAY :D
