'Galaxians' is an absolut classic both in the arcades and on the speccy.
But this version, however, has a big letdown. It turns out that our shots here are like guided missiles, when you move the ship, you move the shot as well, and of course it makes the game too easy. Also the graphics could be cleaner.
A shame because the game had everything to be the next version of choice on the spectrum after the brilliant '82 release.
