Galaxian for Commodore 64

Alien invaders are attacking your planet! Protect it at all costs!

Game Notes

  • Objective: Shoot the aliens before they shoot you (or crash into you).
  • All stages are identical in configuration with no new content introduced after even one stage.
    • Difficulty increases by increasing how many galaxians attack at once and how quickly from the start of a stage (immediately in this video).

TAS Notes

  • This is a cartridge version of the game
  • As no new content is introduced after one stage, only one stage is necessary for a TAS.
  • Aims for fastest completion of the highest selectable starting level. (This is equivalent to choosing to the most difficult setting for a one stage run.)
    • Ironically, the increased difficulty causes more enemies to attack. This makes killing them faster than on 'easier' stages as the wait time between shots is shortened.
  • Uses death to save frames.
    • Dying at the end of the video allows for completion of the TAS input earlier than avoiding the alien's attack (requires an additional 8 frames of input).

drd2k9:Canceling--I need to check PAL/NTSC settings.
