A well emulated copy of Galaga, with notably easy achievements.
Lack of any desire to improve the game for Xbox Live.

Retro gamers will no doubt remember Galaga. Galaga is a fixed view, space shooting arcade classic that was released back in 1981, where the aim of the game is to shoot down insect styled aliens using a spaceship that can only strafe left, right and shoot a three-pixel bullet.

Now everyone has a chance to enjoy this classic shooter on Xbox Live. Whilst the overall title has been emulated well, this is basically all that the package consists of. You have the addition of leaderboards and achievements but no sign of graphical upgrades, additional features or even online play. Because of this, Galaga XBL is likely to appeal to retro gaming fans only.

The game has also been designed so that it is extremely easy, allowing you to even pick which level you begin on and how many lives. Due to this, it could be argued that Galaga has been designed this way to entice achievement collectors. With that in mind, Galaga is without a doubt one of the easiest games for gamerpoints.
