If you've found yourself excited by all the coverage of Galaxy on Fire 2 lately between the initial set of screenshots, the WWDC hands-on, the teaser trailer, and finally the full trailer, this is a freebie you won't want to miss. Galaxy on Fire 3D was released in early 2009, and includes over 20 hours of space shootin' and tradin' gameplay. It feels a little dated compared to more recent shooters, but that doesn't make the game any less fun to play through.

Galaxy on Fire 2 is scheduled for release this October, and while I doubt that playing through the first one will be at all required to enjoy the second... There's no reason not to give this game a try, especially while it's free.

    I would love to finish this game but, is there an actual ending to this one? Do you have to clear every single planet and galaxy to accomplish it?

    Wow. Eden Prime? Terran? Are they just going to take names from every Sci-Fi game?
