The Galcon series has always appealed to us. Playing out like a kind of real-time game of intergalactic Risk, its blend of simple controls, thoughtful strategy, and fast paced action. Now, developer Hassey Enterprises is back to add a layer of story to the space combat franchise with Galcon Legends.
Coming to iOS on Thursday, this new instalment in the Galcon series brings some capitalist comedy to the strategic warfare. Playing as Buck the bill collector, your goal is to conquer the galaxy, crush the forces of love, and get paid.
The action itself seems mostly unchanged from previous instalments. However, the promise of a more complete single player game, witty writing, and new comic-style character art may be enough to draw back existing fans, as well as create some new ones.
Galcon Legends will land on the App Store on Thursday. We'll give you the pricing details when we have them.
