Galaga '88 (ギャラガ'88) is an entry in the Galaxian/Galaga series of shoot-'em-ups by Namco. This particular entry has seen its name change several times - it was originally released in arcades in 1988 as Galaga '88 before being brought to the PC Engine later in the year, but was later re-titled Galaga '90 when brought to the TurboGrafx-16. It was later re-released on other systems as Galaga '91.
