Beam Galaxian is a handheld LCD Spin-Off title.
The Plot is the same as Galaxian and Galaxian 2. The first Galaga War is underway, the Galaxians have every one of they're fighters out to take out the Galaga. You fly your Star Ship against the Legions in protection of Earth.
The gameplay is typical scoot around at the bottom of the screen, and shot at targets at the top of the screen, however your shots only go halfway up.(And the Galaga formation's just past the halfway point.) The player's shots aren't as restricted as the original Galaxian. The player has five lives to start with. Although the game uses LCD Graphics it doesn't look too bad for it's time.
- When the game turns on it plays the first the first few notes of the Star Wars opening theme.
