Namco Bandai released today the 30th Collection of Galaga for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This collection is the result of Galaga’s 30th anniversary and is bundled with a free copy of Galaxian. Those interested can download it from the App Store. As you’d expect, this new Galaga version features updated graphics and optimized touch-panel controls.
As the press release reads:
The Galaga 30th Collection universal app will act as a hub for the Galaga universe across all iOS devices. iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners will be able to experience the celebrated Galaga franchise at the tips of their fingers. The title features redesigned modernized remakes of all 4 titles in the Galaga series: Galaxian, Galaga, Gaplus and Galaga ’88, available now in one upgradable iOS application!
The new Galaga features updated graphics, optimized touch-panel controls and more. With the new Galaga Points system, players can earn Galaga Points that they can spend on items to toughen up their ships, to create the meanest fighter in the systems. Players who become Galaga experts can collect achievement pins across the whole game series to boast their in-game accomplishments.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
