    Galcon has more re-playability in my opinion but Edge is more fun while it lasts. I would go for Galcon

    hahah, oh man, thank you for providing a little humor for me in today's threads.
    Wow, the beat just goes on.

    Edit: @Michael, have you looked in the Edge thread to see if any part of the game actually interests you?

    I'd have to say Edge.Haven't played Galcon, but Edge is better than ever w/ the new levels.

    I have both, and I would suggest Galcon. To this day I continue to play Galcon, and it is extremely addictive. It is one of those buried treasures that you find on the app store, and the online multiplayer is fun too.

    i was about to say the same thing...trial by fire my friends.

    @Michael: both are different games so you need to decide where your interest lies. If you're into puzzles, Edge would be ideal. If you're into strategy and quick thinking, Galcon would be your choice.

    I like Galcon. There's a lite version of it. But, much like the 62363426 other "should i get this or that" threads, these games have zero relation to each other. However, I feel Galcon is over-priced compared to the competition, relavant or not.

    Galcon was the first anything i bought in the app store, and was my favorite for a long time.. it really deserves more credit than it received.. i thought i got it at $0.99 or $2.99, i'm amazed it's up to $4.99!

    Edge is pretty fantastic too... it's a very tough call.. Edge has better music and depth, but Galcon has instant re-playability, and it's fun to be able to change the difficulty on the fly, and hey multiplayer! This is the one game that's figured it out!

    Probably get Edge, but that's a close one!

    Wait, seriously? Just download the lite version of Galcon to see if you like it duhhh easy answer :p

    one is an action puzzler, the other is an RTS

    I have not played Edge, but since day one, Love Galcon (paid 10 bucks for it)

    so I am biased when i say go for Galcon

    I must have gotten it at $4.99 then! Only two prices, $9.99 and $4.99.... Well I say it's worth it, Both are good choices, but unrelated... Probably go with Edge, it just got a great update with more levels and music, but Galcon has been languishing, and no improvements have occurred recently.. (fair enough, i don't know what they could add, but still)

    i don't have galcon, but it seems to have more replayability than edge, which is still short even after the new levels have been added.
    $5 is a hefty price for me, but i don't regret spending it on edge.

    btw how does the full version of galcon differ from the lite one? all it says in the description is that there are 5 missions

    The lite version only has a basic game mode. The online is the big draw for the full version of Galcon. I have spent at least 20 hours online on Galcon, probably even more. I highly recommend it

    First, try the Lite version of Galcon. To me, it felt like a full game. It should pretty much gives you an idea (a really good one) of that the game's about.

    I love Edge. It's my favorite game on the AppStore. It offers great visuals (for the genre), music, and variety of levels (there are 47!!!). You can always go back and try to get a higher score.

    You're call man. Maybe you like to do some actual... *gulp*... research?!

    I don't think the Lite version of Galcon does it justice. Multiplayer brings it to a whole new level. Competing directly against other players means instant replayability and the ability to come up with and go against a variety of different strategies.
