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.

Wow, almost identical in gameplay to an old X11 game called xbattle.

Was a lot of fun back in the day... I'll give Galcon a shot too.

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.

Pretty cool! Thanks for the review!

Also a very similar game is "Archipelago" by Second Gear Games

Really good game but Archipelago is slightly better in my opinion.
