    Gaplus Description

    Another shooting game where you can capture the enemies and make them work for you if you hit the queen ship when it dives. This game is not widely known because it was released during the video game crash.

    Game Introduction

    The game has the same look and feel as the original Galaga. The "bees" were redesigned to look a little more modern. A possible contributing factor to the game's lack of success in the arcades is that it becomes extremely difficult after Parsec 4 or 5. Games end quickly!

      The challenging stage is pretty cool and unique

      I like this better than Galaga (and not just cause I suck at Galaga) I think it's a little bit more interesting with the huge captures you can get and massive firepower but you can lose them just as quickly...

      Edit: Score update

        Its difficulty increases dramatically after about round 5 as well, usually get to round 5 without losing a life, then it can be all over very quickly.

          I like this game, yeah it gets hard & you need a bit of luck, but there's more to it than Galaga. I did have a Namco PCB but sold it because it was faulty, fixed the fault 5 mins before selling it .

          Wish I still had it now, what is the version of this on the 48in1, any difference in gameplay ?. It would be better for me as my mame cab is Horizontal.

          Played on mame rev D so far though.

          Edit: Just noticed the current hi score! Damn thought I was quite good

          Edit: must of stuffed up when I updated score

              It's called Galaga 3 on the 48. Same game AFAIK.

                Yeah, I thought it might be, i'll stick with mame for the scores, maybe just practice on 48 'galaga 3' version.

                cheers, SZ

                    Slowly getting there with this game, find I'm dying a bit cause I'm unfamiliar with things though - like trying to catch stuff that is actually lethal, and expecting the corkscrew capture to give you ships alongside... had a decent run and made it to Parsec 12, updated score.

                    The second challenging stage is weird - you spell Gaplus but then at the end it gives you a random huge bonus according to when you hit the button ? Got 30k for a single button press there, nice

                      Made it to the DOUBLE challenge screen, then a few screens later got the slow down firepower ( I had forgot all about that) the enemies move really slow caught me out

                      A bit of my best but getting back into the swing of this game again, its been a couple of years since I had a really good go at it, now to beat my high score.
                      Man OZstick must be good at this game 690,000

                          Updated score in earlier post, 150k parsec 11 (wtf is a parsec anyhow?)

                          This game gets wild, would love to play some of the later levels, trouble is once I get killed & lose the powerups its pretty much game over.

                            Not going so well at this game, will post a score soon, not getting much higher than 100k at present.
