Galactic Fighter is an arcade style game, with one flying throught space being attacked by aliens, missiles, and meteors/asteroids. After awhile, you go through hyperspace and into a laser trench, where more aliens attack. You also have two smart bombs that will blow up all of your opponents on the screen. The game is somewhat unique in that the first level is done sideways (similiar to Defender), but the trench levels are done in a 3-D style. After going through hyperspace, your ship actually turns around to go into the trench. I believe that this is the first commercial game that Kevin Hoare did, before he started selling through Diecom Products.
