Sega-Galaga is the only port of the classic arcade game that has a different name. It is effectively a completely different game than the arcade version. While the basic concept is the same, this version has simplified sound and rules, no challenge modes and all of the waves are identical, although the enemy movement increases and decreases in cycles reaching the fastest speed at level 35.

Sega Galaga is the only port of the classic arcade game that has a different name. It is effectively a completely different game than the arcade version. While the basic concept is the same, this version has simplified sound and rules, no challenge modes and all of the waves are identical, although the enemy movement increases and decreases in cycles reaching the fastest speed at level 35.

This run by dwangoAC beats the example high score in the fastest time possible.

There has been a fair bit of discussion about what the best ending would be for this game. One suggestion that came up was to complete the first level in which the high score occurred. This WIP is a few seconds longer than my previous submission but completes all of stage 4 instead of stopping immediately after the high score is obtained. An encode of this file can be downloaded here. Feedback on this goal choice would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy,
