In 1981, Stedek Software (the guys who also came up with their Star Castle clone, Star Island, in which was converted by Paul Lay just last year) was first with their Galaxian clone for the Atari 8-bit computers, titled Galactic Chase, in which is also available for the 5200. Then Atari came up with one of their own for Big Sexy (and also the A8) the following year, during the launch of our favorite unit. But I was just wondering, having played both what your favorite is???


I have included both ROMs for you to compare the two for yourselves.

Galactic Chase was one of the first games my brother and I ever owned for our Atari 400.  It came in a ziplock-style plastic bag with a cassette tape and black and white manual.   It was released well before before Atari released Galaxian, and Atari's version wasn't as good.
