The Challenging Stage appears through all games. It randomly comes up on the third stage and every fourth stage thereafter (for example: seven, eleven, fifteen, nineteen, twenty-three, and so on). The player can expect a challenging stage usually after three or four levels in any Galaga game. Challenging Stages become more challenging as the player's skills grow.
