148Apps Review: Galcon Labs

148Apps writes: "Imitation Pickles released Galcon on the iPhone quite a while ago. It was one of the first games that I went from downloading the light, liking it so much, then upgrading to the full highly priced version for $0.99. It was well worth it. The game easy to pick up, but hard to master. There were a few issues with the game that kept me from really sinking my teeth into, but regardless it was a well designed game idea that worked well on the device.

Fast forward a few months, and we have a completely unexpected delivery to the app store in Galcon Labs. As the name describes, Galcon Labs is a mishmash of game types that seem to have either evolved out of the original Galcon play style, or were perhaps some early prototypes of possible styles of game play. For those of you uninitiated into the Galcon Universe the basic game play style is this: You are given a map with a large amount of planets dispersed throughout. You then start with a set amount of evil coloured triangles on your one planet and in all out war your objective is to wipe out the opposite race of evil coloured triangles. You do this by taking over uninhabited planets, which provide you with more resources. It's simple, the bigger the planet, the more they produce. You can then decide to send a percentage of your troops to the varying planets in an attempt for galactic domination. This all happens in real time, with a tight control scheme, and games are usually over very quickly. Most maps last a couple minutes at most."

The story is too old to be commented.
