GalagaAnother one for the classic games section, I made a reference to this game when reviewing Swarm due to the way the enemies swarmed onto the play field.

Galaca is a Java applet 'clone' of the classic action arcade game Galaga. Originally created by Namco and released as a coin-op amusement in 1981, Galaga was a sequel to the very popular Galaxian (1979), which was Namco's answer to Taito's mega-hit Space Invaders (1978).

And while this Java applet features similar gameplay as the original, there are significant features missing, such as the tractor beam and bonus stages, that keep this from being a game for the purists out there. Still, it's a fun casual game for anyone looking for a quick retro arcade action fix. Click.
