The game spawned several spinoffs, the most famous of those being ''VideoGame/{{Galaga}}'', which greatly exceeded its predecessor in popularity. Both games are staples on ''Namco Museum'' home collections, and have been ported to almost every system imaginable.

''Galaxian'' was one of Namco's earliest successes, and it introduced concepts such as multi-colored sprites and explosions (as opposed to the black-and-white in games that came before it) and running background "music". Sure, [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny these may sound mundane to us gamers now]], but back in 1979 when this first came out, these were a ''big deal''.

A sequel named ''Galaxian 3'' (also known as ''Galaxian 3: Project Dragoon'') was released as an attraction that ran in Namco's Wonder Eggs theme park in Tokyo from 1990 to 2000. Now a 3D polygonal RailShooter, the game allowed for 28 players sitting in 2 levels surrounded by a massive 360 degree screen powered by 16 projectors. A smaller version for 6 players was later released for arcades in 1994, this was followed up by another sequel ''Attack of the Zolgear''.
