The original Galaga was a fairly easy game. It let you level select and was very easy to learn. This game however, is the complete opposite. There are two modes, Adventure and Championship. Adventure mode gives you one set of lives and it’s up to you to survive all 5 levels without a game over. This game is unforgiving and relentless. When you first start playing, it will be extremely easy on level one, and you think you are advancing to level 5 as it shows you “level 03” and etc as you progress. Then after you beat the boss at the end of it, you realize that was just one whole level, with 5 different sub levels. Having hardly any lives, you advance to level 2, and realize the reality.

How To Play

With auto-fire enabled you will only have to worry about to controls. Your right and left analogue sticks. Your left will control your ship’s movements. Your right will deploy satellites which are basically the two little things on the sides of you firing. Click the right stick in the direction you want one of them firing, and then the other one can be placed in the same manor in the same or any direction you prefer. This is absolutely crucial that you learn proper placing of these. You may notice blue neon lines at times displayed in different patterns. The game is hinting of the directional movement of the enemy. The orange neon squares/lines are where you want to always place your satellites because it’s the main point of force. If you can always shoot the orb/center of all enemies to make a combo and create an explosion for all enemies attached. The sphere that looks like it has lightning in it is Galaga. Shoot it when you see it to gain a huge advantage! If you miss it I’d almost suggest just restarting the entire level.

Step 1: Championship Mode

This mode let’s you pick any of the 5 levels regardless if beaten or not. To make things easier on you, always be on “Auto-Fire” mode. Keep the skin as original, the other skins will throw you off (they make the ship look different). Pick the levels in order and try to gain the achievements in them. There are videos in the guide to help out. Every level you beat, you will get an achievement and once completing the last one, you will gain “All Championship Areas Clear”. On the first level try your best to survive to gain the One Life Only achievement. I suggest replaying the same level to also get Zero Deployments. It’s easier to do them in separate sessions.

Step 2: Adventure Mode

If you got good enough to actually make it passed all the levels in Championship Mode then you have gotten farther than a lot of people. Now you have to clear all 5 levels without a game over. This is by far the hardest and most time consuming, as well as frustrating set of achievements in the game. The last achievement alone is worth 50 points! Hopefully you have had enough practice in the Championship Mode to die less frequently. Pay attention to the videos and pause often to get a head start on what’s coming your way.


Very hard game, only skilled and patient players will be able to gain all achievements. If you manage to get them all, then job well done. The videos in the guide aren’t mine, but are the only resource/help I could personally find to attempt the game.
