Galaxy on Fire 2 gameplay is amazing. It reminds me of most space games where you fly against opponents through space and try to defeat them. The story line is interesting and engaging, BUT let’s get to the flaws. This game is intense, a little too intense. I reviewed this game on the iPhone which was probably the wrong idea. The graphics are gorgeous, but a little too gorgeous, because the frame rate is good when you are not in combat, but once you start fighting with other ships the iPhone starts to fizzle out. I would LOVE to try this game on the iPad, being that it has a little bit more power too it. This is a full fledged game; something you would more likely see on a computer or console game, which definitely means I’m interested.
Galaxy on Fire 2 HD Walkthrough / Guide
Wow, where do I begin? These types of games are quite difficult to learn to play. You would do better with a joystick or something of that nature, but we don’t have that do we? There are two types of controls, either using the screen like a directional pad as most games do or just simply tilting the phone itself. Either method is effective but it depends on how you like to play. I chose the joy-pad method on screen, because the alternative felt like I was throwing my phone all over the place. Mastering the controls and learning to follow enemies (so you can shoot them) is key. This game is complicated, and it’s obviously because it’s supposed to be. Follow the red dots on your HUD radar in front of you so that you can track enemy units.
Graphics: Amazing. But like I said, a little too amazing. When you start to shoot at ships to defend yourself the frame rate drops drastically and the game becomes choppy on the iPhone.
Sound/Music: Also amazing. A game like this deserves a little credit, they are just dealing with a much smaller platform.
Pros: This is the type of game you could sit and play at home because it is actually more than just a waste of time.
Cons: The frame rate. This game is obviously too heavy for my iPhone 4. The frame rate slows down way too much for the game to be actually playable. I would highly recommend you play this game on the iPad.

Addiction level: High. This game is intense, and I might just shell out the cash for an iPad for it.
