Galacta  1992

A ridiculously hard shooter, but more than just a Galaga clone. Hostile aliens have destroyed Pluto, Neptune and Uranus, as well as the defense force that was sent to engage them. This game is so difficult that you get seven ships to fight them with. Galacta adds power-ups like shields and lasers, occasionally an asteroid will enter the playing field, and the enemies don't merely enter the screen in formation, they fly in formation for the entire level. That means that enemies are never standing still, and the screen frequently fills with enemy fire. The first episode was shareware and there were supposed to be two additional episodes for registered users, but they were never created.

Episode 1: The Battle for Saturn
Episode 2: Last Stand on Mars
Episode 3: In Defense of Earth
