Galaxian is a 1983 Atari 2600 fixed shooter video game developed by General Computer Corporation and released by Atari in the USA on March 6, 1983. Galaxian expanded on the formula pioneered by Space Invaders. As in the earlier game, Galaxian featured a horde of attacking aliens that exchanged shots with the player. In contrast to Space Invaders, Galaxian added an element of drama by having the aliens periodically make kamikaze-like dives at the player's ship, the Galaxip.
