Stop Enemies from Firing
On most revisions of Galaga, there's a trick that stops enemies from firing at your ship. In Stage 1, kill all aliens except the two bees in the bottom-left corner. Allow the bees to dive down and shoot at you, while dodging their shots. After around 15 minutes or so, the bees will continue to drop down, but they won't fire. Let them drop down another 5 or 6 times, then kill them. After all this, enemies will not shoot at you for the rest of the game.

Wait until one of the top ships(the green ones that take two shots to kill) comes down and fires off a tractor beam(the beam that can capture your ship). Let it capture your ship. Now, wait until it swoops down again with your ship behind it. Simply kill the head ship(the green one), and it will lose your ship. Your ship will then lock on to the side of your current ship, giving you two ships to play with at the same time! Now, be careful. Not only will both ships be firing at you after your ship gets captured, but if you accidently shoot your captured ship, you'll destroy it. Also note, this will cost you one life, but will definately make the Challenging Stages, and perhaps the game itself, a little easier to play.
Note: This works in all non-bootleg/hack versions of Galaga, as well as most of the sequels and Arranged Mode in Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1.

Enter service mode, then quickly turn it off and on once so that an alignment grid appears on the screen, hold down both start buttons and toggle service mode on and off quickly again so that grid remains on the screen. Next move the stick up, left, down, and right four times each to make a hidden message appear onscreen.
Pac Man's parking space
At the beginning of every level/life, Pac-Man is just underneath a T-shape. The right-hand corner of that T is a parking space. If the ghosts aren't chasing you closely, you can pull into that space and the ghost will not find you. You can leave it sit for hours and they won't find you. It gives you a chance to grab a sandwich, take a bathroom break, etc.
