NCS Product Synopsis
Update: April 26, 1996

«©NCSX» Namco tries their hand at an on-rails shooter and creates a sweeping galactic action game with cinematic scope and flourish. An alien force is on the hunt and its up to four gunners to man their mounted laser cannons and shoot at everything that courses through the ether of space. In the arcade, Galaxian 3 allowed up to six players to shoot and dump bags of quarters into the machine. Since the Playstation multi-tap only has four slots, Namco had to adjust the player participation down to four gamers at a time.

   Two missions are included in Galaxian 3 as follows: Project Dragoon which uses broad polygon graphics to convey the action and The Rising of Gourb which is more sophisticated with cinematic flourish and orchestral music. Both missions play a game of "on rails" shooting where the player's ship flies on automatic pilot and all one is charged with is the targeting and shooting of flying enemy ships and massive mother ships. The game presents a dramatic and somewhat intimidating space opera/drama/epic where it feels like one is part of a grand scheme to rid the galaxy of an evil force.

   Excellent players with eagle-eyed shooting skills will help to reduce the amount of enemy fire that the ship takes but poor shooters will eventually suffer along with a damaged vessel that eventually succumbs to the rigors of enemy attacks.

   Four players may join in the fun, provided a multi-tap is present, but lonesome hawks may shoot with a computer-controlled gunner who offers support. Perform in stellar fashion and a better computer player becomes available as a sidekick.

New options in the Playstation game include the option of varying the power of your gunner's laser fire, different difficulty levels, and the ability to save high scores to memory card.
