OK so I'm probably being a bit thick but how do you fire!
Got really excited about playing and could only go left and right.

Great although the wife was not impressed by my frantic space bar bashing while she was trying to read.

Maybe my reactions have actually improved over the years, but that's much easier than it used to be.  Good fun though

Good stuff.

My all-time favourite classic arcade simulation has to be this one...

Galaga

Having spent many, MANY hours in my youth playing this game, I can say this is a very faithful reproduction.

X Box my arse.

STU you have a lot to answer for...apparently Mr B was very good at this back in the day, I can now hear him bashing the key board accompanied by duh duh duh duh ("yes I have to have the sound on") and the occasional "SH!T!" when he is hit *rolls eyes* I am a space invader widow

LOL

there have been a few "oh dear me's" from my direction too, B.
