Galaxian was first released as a video arcade game in 1979 and was quite popular during the golden age of the coin operated video machine (1980s) and is important in the history of video gaming. This was the first video game released with 100 percent of its graphics displayed in true R.G.B. color; other prior coin operated video machines used color overlays or other little tricks to introduce color to the games.
