Top Ten NES Games That Are Still Fun Today

5) Galaga: Demons of Death

This is the NES port of the cult arcade classic, Galaga. For those of us out there that have never seen or played the game; Galaga is a space fighter where the player controls a ship that can move horizontally across the bottom of the screen and fire missiles. Enemy ships will approach from the top of the screen and fire projectiles in an effort to destroy the player’s ship. The enemy ships will also attempt to suicide into the player ship. Any contact with the enemy projectiles or the enemy ships will result in a death. The NES version is very similar to it’s arcade counterpart with a few minor differences: the sounds of the game and the playing area. Galaga’s simple concept and colorful, concise graphics make the game easy to follow; even for someone who didn’t play games in the 8-bit era. Galaga: Demons of Death certainly does a great job of having clear goals, easy to understand controls and a great color scheme which works for the NES. All of these qualities make it a game that you could sink hours into at home, even today.
