Default Galaga

Anyone know of a good Galaga clone for the PC? I tried down loading one from softpedia but that site has so much malware and crap took me forever to clean. Want it for my dads PC. He has been playing it on his phone but kinda sucks for the guy at higher levels things are hard for him to see. TIA

I have been trying to get a rom and it's parent working with mame. No luck so far. There is the Namco Anniversary set that contains the game but they want 56 bucks US for it. His computer is Windows 7. What is Radiant?

I dunno it seems to be a mix of Galaga, Asteroids and a schmup.

Too bad. I wish Namco would have released their arcade games separately. I guess I'm stuck buying some mix CD from a crook on Amazon. Better than not being able to get it I suppose.

warblade is apparently a good clone I have not played it and it seems the creator is working on a remake or updated version of galaga as well has demos of both.

Default Free Galaga for PC

You should check it out here.

However, it's not in English language but you can translate the data for yourself. Well, I think it's a good solution for you. Hope it helps. Thanks
