GameBoy Color : Galaga Details
We never fancied that a company could mess up a game like Galaga, but it's happened. While Q-Bert and Frogger 2 had to be considered successful remakes, Galaga is anything but, and will leave players searching for the black-and-white Galaga redux version that came out for Game Boy years ago.

On the positive side, this Galaga is in color--it adds four backgrounds in place of the once starry black night. The game also offers up bigger ships and enemies, but this ends up changing the game by allowing fewer foes onscreen at once. The result is an easy 24 levels, in which enemies fly in the same basic patterns. Once players get ahold of these flight formations, all challenge flies out the door--as does any interest that one might have had in playing the game.
Even hard-core retrogamers should stay away from this one. It's not the same as the original, and it won't test players' finger dexterity. Luckily, there are better versions of Galaga floating around for those who are willing to seek them out. --Robb Guido
