Galaxian was an arcade game where players faced a horde of aliens in a formation above their Galaxip, which would leave their formation and attack the player's ship. It would later be ported to many home game consoles over the years.

Galaxian from Minion Software is a remake of the original Galaxian.

It can be confusing to new users to wikis in regards to submitting new pages, but it's fairly simple for creating new pages for the most part. Most situations for submitting new material to this wiki in particular will usually include:

Writing about a game. In order to create a write-up about a game, programmer or gaming platform that does not have a page yet, users can perform a Search (at left if you're using the MonoBook skin, or at top center if using the Wikia skin) for the subject you wish to create an article on, which it will read "<Create the page "_____" on this wiki!>", which will be in red if using the MonoBook skin; if using the Wikia skin, just click on the Contribute button at the top right. Click on the red area if using MonoBook, or if using Wikia, then click on Add a Page, which you will be taken to a new page and you can start typing to your heart's content.

If there are any questions, either leave them on this discussion page or this wiki's founder's page. There's also the How to write an article page (as mentioned earlier) to read up on formatting for this wiki in particular.

Thanks, and good luck with writing and editing!

And stay at the bottom!
