Galaxy Wars is the Super Famicom conversion of an early arcade game released by Universal in 1979. Alien flying saucers are invading again and their fleet is menacing the Earth. The player controls a launching pad and a missile. The goal of the game is to destroy every single enemy ship. However, those aliens are cleverly hidden behind an unpredictable and moving asteroid field. If your missile either gets hit one of them or by an alien laser beam, it will be simply destroyed and you will lose one of your three precious lives, or launching pad in this case. The game also offers some interesting twists, like the ability to push meteors towards enemy lines if bumped at the right angle. This Super Famicom version proposes the original Black and White and Colored versions, this last option simulating the colored bars from the plastic film that was usually glued in front of the original arcade game's screen. More interestingly, a Neo Mode has been included and uses better graphics and planets in the background.
