I don't know what this game is called but it is a 2D computer game that you can (hopefully) play online. The player has a "spacecraft" available to him which stays at the bottom of the screen and can move in one dimension (left or right). From the top, aliens spacecraft keep coming and the player needs to shoot them. At first, there will be a bunch of alien spacecraft and after they are all shot, more spacecraft will arrive. Obviously I don't remember the name of the game which heavily limits google search accuracy but if anyone can find it, I'd greatly appreciate it and we can talk about how many alien spacecraft we shot. The screen initially looks like this just in case it would help anyone recall the game.

The ones at the top are the alien spaceships. There are many rows of them.

Are you being serious?

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Yup. Galaga is the one. You are a lifesaver. Seems like you know your way around games.

I really don't, I just remember playing it when I was 10 or so.

Incidentally, I played a few rounds online after I found it. I don't remember it being so hard to dodge the bullets. Maybe its because the screen is smaller.
