CHAMP Galagon is a DOS shareware remake of Namco's classic 1980 Galaga arcade shooter. Like the other games in CHAMProgramming's series of arcade remakes, it closely emulates the original with two game modes, the original "Classic" and the enhanced "Champ" mode.
The "Classic" mode plays and feels like the arcade machine, with very similar graphics, sound and gameplay: You play a spaceship, moving horizontally at the bottom of the screen, and shooting up at a bunch of Space Invaders-like aliens, which attack you in waves becoming harder and harder with the game. Every third level is a bonus round, where you may shoot at will for extra points.
The "Champ" mode is an upgraded version of the classic game, featuring new graphics and gameplay elements. For example, you can increase your firepower by rescuing former comrades captured in enemy formations. There also is a new device called G-Bomb, used by the alien flagships, which you can get by destroying him and use against the enemy.
Finally, the game features a variety of options -- one or two player modes, three difficulty settings, adjustable game speed, input by keyboard, mouse or joystick (Champ even released a "Champ cable" that allowed you to play the game with digital joysticks), and a high score table to round it all off.
Get ready to stop the Galagon Empire from taking over Earth with Galagon, release from CHAMP Games. The Galagons attack in waves, firing missiles down on your ship. You must avoid colliding into the missiles and enemy ships while at the same time destroying them as fast as possible.
This game offers two modes of play: Classic, which is like an arcade version, and CHAMP, which has enhanced graphics, weapons, attack patterns, and power-ups. Whether you choose the first or second option you will see that the gameplay is in focus and you will get a lot of entertainment from both as well. If you are a bit tired of the regular arcade shooters the CHAMP version offers additional gameplay in a game genre that is a bit overcrowded with very similar versions.
Galagon is overall a decent game and is of the same good standard as any other game from CHAMP Games. Of course there is a few things that could be better in the game and the gameplay is pretty much the same on each level but you can't expect much more from a game like this either.
CHAMP Galagon is a good clone of ATARI's classic Galaga, similar in style and gameplay to CHAMProgramming's earlier CHAMP Galaxia which was based on Galaxian. The gameplay is simple as ever: destroy the waves of Galagon ships that are invading the Earth. As with other CHAMP games, you can play the game in two modes: the Classic mode, which faithfully recreates the fun of Galaga, or the CHAMP mode, which offers new challenges, new enemies, and a more difficult gameplay.
CHAMP games are notable for excellent graphics, faithful recreation of arcade originals, and a smooth, addictive gameplay that brings the much-loved classic to a new generation of gamers, as well as old-timers who will enjoy the CHAMP levels. If you love the arcade original, you will doubtless enjoy this wonderful remake from one of the best shareware companies in the business.
