iPhone – Galcon app Review

First time I encountered this game was on Mac OS X platform. Back then, there weren’t iPhones or many “touchscreen” – based games. But these days your smart-phone is your portable PC.

Galcon on Mac OS X review

Full Galcon iPhone App Review

First of all : free or paid – both (free to try and shareware); Orientation support – in the menu NO, in the game YES; iPhone app category : Game – Strategy

This game will give you quick and intense dose of planetary domination.
At first you will have to chose your skill level, even in the “free to try” mode you have 10 levels of difficulty to chose. For the basic low, you will have a brief basic gameplay tutorial.

The action takes place in space, where you find only planets. The objective is to conquer those planets using tiny ships (arrows). Each planet can produce ships. The bigger the planet, more ships will be made for you to use.

You will be green and the opponent (aka your iPhone) will be orange.
Using your finger you control one planet ships, you can also select more planets or double-tap to select all planets for a bigger army. Also you can select different teams once deployed of ship and redirect them. The game supports multitouch. All your planets (and your opponent in easier difficulty settings) will have a number, that number indicates the available ships.

The ships won’t attack each other. They attack only the planets, so you need to have a good strategy against your enemies.

One single game is pure strategy and should be over in just a few minutes (or seconds). For now, there are no ads inside the app, so you can relax and enjoy the game without the fear of “ads”. If you want more modes to play and different ships and galaxies you’ll have to go full game (not just demo).

If I could describe in a few short words this game : “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo DaVinci” of strategy iPhone apps.

Pluses: Addictive , quick and easy to learn, pure strategy.

Drawbacks / flaws: expensive to buy full, no landscape mode in menu.

In conclusion: Addictive, simple, easy.
