Classic arcade shoot ‘em up Galaga was faithfully recreated for the home in this acclaimed NES™ version.

If your fighter gets captured by an enemy, free it from the tractor beam and combine with it to form a dual fighter with twice the firepower!

This is the US version of the game.

* Romance of the three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire, Tecmo Koei – £5.49 (€7.99)
Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV is a gripping strategy simulation set in ancient China. Devise strategies against foreign rulers and take control of their cities to grow your own empire. Build armies and move your troops across the map, before plunging into the fray. To be a successful ruler you will need not only great warriors but also farmers and scientists; growing crops to keep your people well-fed, and developing new weapons to aid you in battle. But watch out for unexpected events like plagues, floods or swarms of locusts!

This is the US version of the game.
