Arcade Space Ships

August 15, 2012

In Arcadian, I said that the space ship in Galaga was the best in all the arcade, and I stand by that.  The colors, the lines, and the little gun barrels at the bottom make this look like a sleek Buck Rogers or Battlestar Galactica ship.

 

This ship is so cool, it has been featured in the Day in the Extra Life series.

 

This awesome ship, though, wasn’t the only ship in the arcade.  There were several others.

The Galaxian ship.  Not nearly as sleek.  To me, it looks more like a cargo vessel.

The Pheonix ship.  Again, more cargo vessel than fighter.  But it did have the benefit of shields.

The Defender ship.  Now this one could give the Galaga ship a run for its money.

The Space Invaders ship.  This one wasn’t a ship at all, but a laser base.

The Asteroids ship.  Pretty sleek, but it fought asteroids, not alien invaders.

There were dozens of others.  I think it’s safe to say, though, that the Galaga ship was among the best, if not the best.
