Galaxy on Fire 2 is a space based RPG/shooter that a lot of folks have been waiting for to arrive, and now that it has, it definitely doesn’t disappoint. It easily has the best graphics I’ve seen for an Android game and it’s also a large game, so you should be able to play for a while. Unfortunately, I couldn’t run it my Captivate, but was lucky enough to have a brother with the Droid X2, so I still got to spend some quality time with the game.
The controls are fairly easy to get the hang of, and you’ll be able to use the Accelerometer or Touch Controls to pilot your ship. The gameplay is rich and there are plenty of things to do with over 20 solar systems, and 100 space stations to explore. If you’re a fan of games with a storyline, Galaxy on Fire 2 has one of those too with around 10 hours of gameplay. There are plenty of missions, and you can also go off on your own and trade supplies, be a pirate, mine asteroids, and even manufacture new equipment and weapons! Like space ships? Well, Galaxy on Fire 2 has plenty of those as well; with over 30 different types of ships to choose from.
Galaxy on Fire was optimized to run with the new Tegra devices, and it shows. The graphics are jaw-dropping, and everyone I know who’s played it has been amazed with the overall quality of the game. The ships look great, as do the planets, backgrounds, and everything else. The audio is just as important as the graphics, and Fishlabs nailed those too. The game has 3D sound so the SFX are crisp, and it uses full voice acting throughout the game.
You’ll have full access to everything within the “first” solar system for free, but after that you’ll have to unlock the rest of the game and universes via the in-app purchasing system. Having only played around in the first universe a bit, I can’t really say too much about the full game and the hefty price. At 14.99 it’s not cheap, but does have a lot to offer and you can’t forget about those gorgeous graphics. If you have an Android device that can run Galaxy on Fire 2, I would definitely recommend checking out the free version in the market.
