Game Details

Sequel to Galaga - whereas galaga allowed the aliens to capture your ship, Gaplus allows you to catch bugs in your own tractor beam. These bugs would then join you in a line either side of your ship, giving a wide span of firepower - Another tractor beam holds bugs in your line of fire to be shot for high bonuses. Challenge stages involve keeping bouncing bugs on screen for as long as possible by juggling them on your bullets. Later stages grow increasingly difficult with fragmenting bombs getting in the way.

Also known as Galaga 3.
