Galaga flyer

Galaga is a shoot-em-up game in the vein of Space Invaders, but it's much better for simple reasons like being able to double up ships and having distinct enemies in the formation that had actual movement patterns instead of simply moving left-to-right and advancing rows. It's the second game in a shmup trilogy; the other two games are Galaxian and Gaplus, neither of which are quite as acclaimed or well-known.

Still playable in arcades (often alongside Ms. Pac-Man). Seriously.
