Namco Classic Collection Volume 1 is a arcade game collection that was released by Namco in November 1995. It is a collection of three popular Namco arcade games - Galaga (1981), Xevious (1982) and Mappy (1983). In addition to the original games, there are "Arrangement" versions that are essentially sequels to the original games, with updated graphics and sound. Super Xevious (1984) can be selected from the "Xevious" menu. Gameplay: -The gameplay is basically the same as the original Galaga, except that: Rounds have been named; one is called the "Asteroid Field", and the background varies (such as asteroid belts, nebulas, etc.). -When a boss Galagan captures a fighter, a player can shoot and retrieve the fighter while the boss Galagan is still in formation. Also, the game does not stop while the fighter comes back. -Boss Galagans have been split into three different types: yellow, blue, and red. When releasing captured fighters from bosses, blue rewards the player with Wide Shot (a shot that can hit two enemies at once, the equivalent of the Dual Fighters found in the original), yellow bosses allow the player to fire as fast as he/she wishes; the reddish boss gives reflective shots: three missiles are fired to the left, right, and center. The left and right missiles bounce off the sides of the play area until they come into contact with an enemy or disappear. -Boss Galagans still use tractor beams even if the player has a special ship; the boss Galagan simply steals one of the ships. Rescuing the ship causes it to turn into the form it was previously in. -In Challenging Stage, there are more varied formations. Also, the screen tilts, rotates, and zooms in and out, giving an illusion to make it tougher to secure a lock on the Galagans. The Galagans do not really follow along with the tilting. -There are more varied formations; Galagans come in different ways now, and there may be 2-3 formations before completing a stage. -A screen (intermission) after completing a stage will pop up, stating destroyed-to-miss ratio and percent of defeated Galagans. When playing in two-player mode, the person with the highest score will have "WIN" written above their stats in neon-blue glowing letters. The person with the lower score will see the word "LOSE" written in glowing neon-red above their stats. -Shooting rules have been considerably relaxed, with the player able to shoot more rounds faster than in Galaga. -Simultaneous two-player gameplay is available. The second player's ship has a bluish tint and appears slightly below the first player's ship to avoid confusion. The two ships cannot collide or harm each other. -Many stages of gameplay, with a final boss at the end of stage named "King Galaspark" (a huge purple and red bug in the "Enemy-Comb Zone", the last zone in the game).
