Galaga Achievements

Perfect Bonus

Shoot down all enemies in a Challenging Stage!  

Follow the “Dual Fighter” achievement in level two and make sure to not get shot or you will lose one of your ships. When level three (the Challenging Stage) starts up, position your craft near the center of the screen and hold down which is rapid fire. Now you will have your Duel Fighter shooting rapid fire right into the path of the oncoming ships. All you need to do now is make sure to shoot down all ships, and the achievement will unlock.

Please see this video for a complete walkthrough of this achievement.

Best way to get this is in the first challenge stage.

Let one of your ships get captured in stage 1 or 2.
Do not shoot your captured ship or the ship that captured it while they hover.
When your captured ship attacks, kill the ship controlling it and you'll have 2 ships side by side with twice the firepower.

its not impossible without two ships but having two makes it way easier. it is rapid fire only if you hit something with the bullet. when the bullets disappear you can fire again making it rapid fire ^_^

Take a look at your friends who have this game (the good players, not the ones who never finish anything)... and you'll see that most people HAVE this achievement (maybe ALL the achievements)!

I haven't given up... but I haven't tried it enough times. Make sure you start at "Stage 2" so you don't possibly lose a ship (or two) before you get there! I suck at this game! I'll keep trying every now and again, until I get it.

I bought this YEARS ago... thinking it was "Galaxian" - a game I love, and am pretty good at! Where's THAT game???

I just got it!!! Start at "Stage 2" and form a dual-fighter (read the forum for details on how). When the "Challenge Stage" begins, stay in the center of the screen and hold the "B" button (it's rapid fire). YOU WILL NOT FAIL!

As soon as I learned about the "B" button, and staying in the center of the screen (when the dual-fighter is formed, you are placed there automatically)... I did just that and I cleared the stage for the FIRST TIME, and got the achievement!

NOTE! The achievements unlock when you lose your last ship and the score tallies.

I tried staying in the middle with the dual fighters rapid firing, and still get screwed on that second wave because of the bugs that take 2 hits >=[

#13 was dead on, stay perfectly in the middle. I started holding B whilst it still said the words, and it popped when I entered my initials after Game Over.

I can switch gears in my car faster than rapid fire's fire rate.
this achievement alone brings the game to a 4/10 difficulty and all levels past 22 add another 2/10.
been trying for days to get this effing achieve using the dual fighter method and i still miss 2 to 3 guys right at the beginning.
this game is a perfect example of why i never went to arcades as a kid.

Just got the game. Got all the cheevo's this morning except this one. Been trying for the last hour to get it. Always 1 or 2 damn ships get away!!!! And that's with me having double ships!!!! I'm done for now. I gotta get ready for work. Maybe I'll try later. I know I'll eventually get it, but it's a pain in the ass.

Just got it this morning. Not too bad after three or four tries. I just stayed in the middle of the screen with double ships and held down on the B button (rapid fire) when the enemies appeared on the screen. That's it.

I know it's been said before, but what you want to do is get your double ship on level 2. Make sure the enemy that captured your ship is the last thing to die, as you get reset to the centre of the screen. Hold 'B' as soon as you get your ship, before the first bonus level starts. DO NOT MOVE and continue to hold 'B'.
