We've been pretty excited for Fish Labs' new game set in the Galaxy on Fire universe for what feels like years now, we got a fresh sniff of it at GDC, and I've been really interested in seeing how this free to play game which is targeted more at "core" gamers is going to do when it's finally released on the worldwide market.

It vaguely sounds like Clash of Clans in that you do way more than just wait for timers, but also form alliances for much bigger overall combat and territorial goals. The game is currently available in New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands… So, if you've got an iTunes account in any of those regions, give the game a spin and dive into our forums to find some people to play with.

      There there,chin up,we may get to have GOF3 if we all wish hard enough *pat pat*

  • the fish

    Don't know what to think of it. It does nothing special. Klicking through menus, leveling up facilities build troops. There is no "galaxy on fire" in this game so far...I will play on but I don't know for how long.

  • hourglass

    Looks kind of bad, honestly... They should have made a game more like GOF 2.

  • HCastle23

    I played the beta when it came out. It was a fun game, but definitely the timers put me off for a while since they seemed too much for the actions that were being completed. Maybe I'll return once it goes live.

  • repapermunky

    F2P GOF? Oh no. :( Not looking forward to this at all. Clash Of Clans-like? Even worse. I was looking forward to a GOF 3, too...

    I played the beta for quite awhile. I probably won't be spending any more time on this.

  • bigjack66

    Played the beta it's boring I was hoping for some sort of multiplayer gof2 but it's dull!

    Loving it! So much fun.
    Am I the only person that enjoys the casual attitude of timer games, and not having to pay anything?

    • Peter

      Yep!

  • ste86uk

    It's just staying on the lobby loading screen for me and I'm on fibre optic at the minute.

  • chanandler

    Well this is a disappointment, game plays just like a sort of simpsons tapped out yet set in space.... Thought I would be flying through space, kicking alien ass and building a space empire. I may be wrong of course, got a bit bored after 30 minutes of 'build this' then wait 30 seconds, rinse and repeat!

    Can't believe I spent most of the evening figuring out how to create a free Canadian iTunes account lol!

      I deleted it after 30 boring minutes going from one menu to another. Was waiting fir Galaxy in Fire to fire up but never did. This us a certain FLOP.

    Join the fight, join the TouchArcade Alliance.

    Citizenship guaranteed.

  • Lawsy

    Hmmmm, some things I liked, but if only the battles had action and strategy, having no control over battles, just battle reports, has lost me :(

  • flashbackflip

    This game is a bad joke. The battle gameplay was reduced to the state of Castles game i was playing in 1993... Wait.. It was 20 years ago!

  • worldcitizen1919

    Bad news this game. I deleted it fast after seeing it was nothing but a bunch of menus.

  • Taclys

    Awww I wanted an MMORPG with open universe dogfighting like in GOF2...

  • araczynski

    anything with $99 IAP is guaranteed to be a nod to "Frack You Mr & Mrs Gamer". I will try it out, on the distant possibility that this isn't some joke that involves the same "other gamers stealing your stuff while you're away" mechanics that this genre was built upon.
