Galaxian (갤럭시안) is a 1979 arcade shoot-'em-up originally released by Namco. It was not officially released for any Sega consoles (though has appeared as part of Namco Museum for the Sega Dreamcast), but HiCom brought to the Sega Master System in South Korea without a license.
This version is based on the MSX one, handled by Namco themselves, meaning that the Master System version is surprisingly accurate to the arcade original. It does, however, run in the SG-1000 graphics mode, and so doesn't have as wide of a colour palette. It is currently unknown when HiCom ported the game to Sega's console.
Galaxian's sequel, Galaga was be released in the form of Sega-Galaga for the SG-1000, and the Galaxian arcade hardware was used by many arcade games of the time, such as popular games like Frogger and Moon Cresta, some of which Sega and Sega/Gremlin distributed.
