Indie gaming + true cross-platform multiplayer + casual strategy = MegaAwesomeWin (MAW). If you did not buy the Indie Game pack on Steam that I told you about a few thousand years ago, then you have made a grave mistake. Well, guess what? Phil Hassey, the maker of the Galcon games, has had an iPhone version for quite some time now (from where the desktop Galcon and Galcon Fusion evolved from, if I am not mistaken) and has been working on an iPad version.
Galcon fusion is a space-strategy game in which you control planets that produce triangular ships that can be used to conquer other planets. A very simple setting with a variety of different modes and fast-paced multiplayer action that forces you to make split-second decisions make this game a must buy for anyone who is looking for casual strategy. If you are going to own an iPad in the future, this game will also feature cross-platform support!
In his own words:-
Even more exciting news is that Galcon Fusion is coming to the iPad! This means that Galcon will be the first truly cross-platform real time multiplayer strategy game for the iPad. Players will be able to share the same servers with people using PC, Mac, and Linux. The iPad version of Galcon is shaping up to be the perfect hybrid between desktop Galcon and iPhone Galcon, with larger maps, more options, up to 12 players per server, hi-def graphics, and other features before available only on the desktop version, yet also featuring the unique touch screen interface and multi-touch capabilities of the iPhone
If there was a time when I’d actually appreciate the iPad for what it is, it would be now. This is nothing short of awesome!
