Galaxy on Fire 2 THD

Posted by Hon-Bon Lee On August - 4 - 2011

The old Java-Version of Galaxy on Fire 2 on my old Sony Cybershot K810i already had good graphics and a huge game world. It was a small sensation in the mobile gaming world.
Fishlabs always focused on the creation of good games with lavish graphics.
Galaxy on Fire 2 is comparable to old PC Hits like “Privateer”, “Freelancer” oder “Elite”, if you played these classic space simulations and liked them, you will probably also like Galaxy on Fire 2 THD.
You can download Galaxy on Fire 2 THD for free in the Android-Market, after the installation it will download a few hundred MB additional data (WiFi recommended).
The first solar system is playable for free. You can only leave the hangar of the Space station in the second solar system after you bought the full version. You buy the game through in-app purchase, it brings you to the android market and after the sale you are back in the hangar, where you can continue to play seamlessly.

The 25 Best Paid Games for July 2011

Posted by Dan Mousavi On July - 12 - 2011

Hi everyone,
here are the best 25 paid games from the last month. I’m sorry that this list is a little late, I’m just too addicted to Google+ at the moment, but I promise that I’ll soon start translating some of the reviews that are in the pipeline. There were somehow fewer quality games this month then in the last, I think this is also the first time since it’s release, that I didn’t have a Unity game to recommend in the paid list. I guess it’s the summer phase, we’ll probably get drowned in quality games this autumn. As always, if we missed any good games, let me know in the comments or on Google+.

30 minutes of Galaxy on Fire 2 THD running on a Nexus One

Posted by Dan Mousavi On June - 16 - 2011

When I did a review on Burning Tires a while ago I already mentioned that I was really looking forward to Galaxy on Fire 2 on Android. I was a little disappointed, when they told me at MWC that the standard version is Xperia Play exclusive and that the advanced Tegra Version is of course only available for Tegra devices, so I planned to postpone to play it until I upgrade my handset (which will be when Google releases a worthwile successor to the Nexus One).
Then Chainfire3D was released and while some games worked with it on the Nexus One, I doubted that Galaxy on Fire 2 would run.
But with the newest version of Chainfire3D Pro and reduced texture quality, the game runs nearly flawless!
Of course the game looks even better on Tegra devices, but to play this advanced version on a N1 is something you should have seen.
So here are the first 30 minutes + the Chainfire 3D settings in a video demonstration, all of this still takes place in the free part of the game, so everyone who has a Android device that works with Chainfire3D can check out how it runs on their device for free themselves.
