The Original Galaga was a basic wave-after-wave shoot-'em-up with one basic twist the rabbit-eared spaceships that sat on the top row had a tractor beam.

Get sucked up, and use your next ship to rescue the first, and both ships then fight side-by-side. Until you get killed. Which generally wasn't long, because your new ship was twice the width -and when the swooping aliens decided to come back up from the bottom of the screen, there was close to bugger all you could do about it.

Galaga 88 - coming seven years after the original - kept that basic theme, and even allowed you to start off in double formation. It introduced a new range of enemies - some of which took three shots to kill instead of two, if you can imagine that, and introduced the flabbergasting dimensional rifts.

During your battles, you would have to collect canisters, which would be automatically deployed at the appropriate time to tear open reality itself. Anticipating an overwhelming influx of chaotic sensation, players were instead cast into six slightly more difficult waves of creatures that looked pretty much the same. Some of them took four shots to kill, though. If you can imagine that.
