Before switching to Android, Galcon easily was my favorite game on the iPod Touch. The developer has been hard at work and has finally released a full port of the game for Android. To play, you use your single starting planet to launch ships to expand and fight opponents for control of the map. Basically, "all your planets are belong to us" sums it up nicely.
You get five game types in single player; each has its own twist on the gameplay. A scalable AI difficulty means you will always have a challenge. The real meat of the game is in the multiplayer, which works great over Wifi and 3G connections. You get up to four player free-for-alls along with 2v2 or 1v1 servers, if that is more your thing. The game also features full leaderboards and forums on the devloper's website.
Galcon is out now on the Android Market for $2.99 and is quite honestly a steal considering how much time you will spend on it. Check out my video review past the break to see internet spaceships in action and the usual market links.
