An Ok Strategy Game

Galcon Fusion is a territory real tile strategy game.  I got it on sale for $2, and for that price, it is worth it. It is a very simple styled game.  The easiest way to describe it is risk on steroids.

You send armies of ships against other planets. The larger the planet, the faster it produces new ships. The first 30 seconds of any given game has you grabbing as many lands as possible. The next two minutes, you try to overwhelm your opponent. Any give game is over in under 3 minutes. The winner is usually decided within that first minute of land grabbing. Each offered mode offers a slightly different type of play. In one mode, you can't see your enemies ships, in another mode, the planets bounce around and move, changing position over time.

There is plenty of difficult settings to give yourself plenty of challenge, and the variety of modes do keep things interesting. At the full price, I do have to say that this game does not offer very much. If you can get it for under $3, it would be worth it, any more, and the game would need to be significantly more developed. As is, it is a great game to pick up and play a few while you are waiting in line, but not a game you are going to put a significant amount of time in, which is a plus or minus depending on what you are looking for.

Wicked fun on both PC/Steam and iOS. Hitting the F10 key on a desktop will toggle between the new graphics mode and the original ASCII mode in real time.
