Galaga - An Arcade classic is also coming to the Atari XL/XE!

We've featured Galaga on Indie Retro News a number of times already, there was the Atari 2600 port, the excellent demake on the Amiga by Pink and Fade One and then the more recent C64 release by Arlasoft. Well fast forward to today however and there's another Galaga game to come which I think you'll equally enjoy, and it's Galaga on the Atari XL/XE: An upcoming Arcade conversion by Playsoft that some have said is already better-looking than the C64 version, with better color, very fluid (NTSC), and very convincing audio (arcade-like) on game-start !

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 this preview, rest assured that if you have an Atari XL/XE and enjoyed Playsoft's previous game of Scramble, you'll love this conversion even if it is still as a work in progress.
