Throughout the early 80's, Galaxian's arcade hardware was commonly used in pirated arcade games. It was very easy to clone when compared to other titles, and as such they could be mass produced easily. Many (rather poor) conversions of popular arcade games like PAC-MAN and Donkey Kong were released at a much lower cost than the official machines, and were common in less wealthy parts of the world.
Known Galaxian Conversions Edit
Something notable about Galaxian hardware bootlegs is that many elements, especially colors and sound, will be very off in some cases. Another notable point is that while most games are direct copies of other arcade titles, some are programmed from scratch.
