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.

Nice to see someone using an Incredible.....Would be even nicer if we could see Flash with Froyo 2.2. Imagine how much nicer this game coul be.

I love this game but i don't think its worth 2.99. Ive played this on my iPod touch and its awesome but I don't want to pay 2.99 for it.

i just played past my lunch break and then realized I need to get back to work. haha. great game! the different modes keep the game playable for a long time!

Love this game, been playing the flash version, its fun, quick and to the point. You dont have to play for too long with this game, unless you want to.

This is a really great game and so polished. I wish more android games are like this rather than the bonanza of slider puzzles and boob apps. I highly recommend this game but I'm still waiting for Angry Birds!

Almost exactly the same as galaxy conquest. Looks like this one has more polished graphics, but conquest controls looks better, compared to this video.
