Galaxian was a Space Invaders style game released shortly after Space Invaders Mania took hold in North America. Galaxian built upon the concepts established in Space Invaders (namely aliens that needed to be destroyed) and, rather than having the aliens simply march in an orderly manner towards the earth, gave them the ability to swoop and dive at the player's ship.
