Galaxian (Apple II) review
"It's hard to imagine an arcade game I hate more than Galaxian. In fact, after completing a couple of levels on an arcade machine(free, no less,) I walked away out of exasperation. The Apple version, however, is patently different. It's faster and more intense, and the aliens swoop maniacally at you. So Galaxian feels more like Galaga than its arcade namesake, though without the memorable bonus rounds. You feel it shouldn't be hard and can vacillate between "this is easy" and "oh no, going to die..."

Andrew Schultz used to write a lot of reviews and game guides but made the transition to writing games a while back. He still comes back, wiser and more forgiving of design errors, to write about games he loved, or appreciates more, now.
