This a super nice mostly original game that is getting real hard to find these days. A nice solid cabinet and all original parts. Not the original joystick, but this one works great. This machine has been cleaned and gone through and is actually more reliable than its predecessor. New florescent marquee bulb, new back door. Monitor has been fully rebuild with new capacitors.

This game was a sequel to the popular Galaga game. It had similar gameplay, but incorporated new "cute" sprites for the game, with some new features: triple ship, choice of starting mode, warps and other tricks discovered through gameplay. The game also supports a continue feature.

The game plays much like the original, but at the beginning you have a choice of heading out with a single or dual ship (choosing dual means having one less ship as a spare). In either case, enemies fly into their formation and you can attack them as they enter. Some waves will have escorts that can be destroyed and some have extra enemies that will fly at you instead of heading into formation.
