It's fair to say that none of us are ever going to feel the real thrill of a dogfight in space, cursed as we are to be born in a time where spaceships spend most of their time on the ground and are rarely equipped with lasers.
Luckily, right now the really rather brilliant Galaxy on Fire 2 is available from the App Store for free, meaning we can live out our space fighting dreams without the danger of being sucked out in an endless vacuum.
We awarded the game 5/5 when we reviewed it, and updates since then have only added to our admiration of the space faring saga. It's full of action, intrigue, and there's enough content to keep you playing for hours.
It's only the standard version of the game that's free, and while it'll run on retina displays, it'll lack some of the crispness you've come to expect from your gaming. Still, for nothing at all, it's well worth a punt.
