For a game that is a bunch of circles and triangles, it is pretty addictive and well designed. The game modes make sure that you are never bored and always adequately challenged. I haven't played the PvP on the game but I doubt that really hinders this games unique design. This game proves that, even with mediocre graphics and less than complex game design, it will always be fun.

I was liking it, but anything under Admiral 1 stripe I was able to easily crush then 1 stripe Admiral crushes me without mercy no matter what I do AND you cannot see the info that the everything up to admiral shows. It's less challenging and more like beating your face into a wall. Unsure of multiplayer and if you want it for single-player it's hard to say if you would enjoy it.

This game is brilliant. It is both simple, easy to understand and just brilliant for its price. Multiple game modes and lots of fun. Really great when you are just looking to burn a few minutes. Lots of different difficulty settings.

Utterly horrible. Multiplayer is pretty much dead, and the single player AI offers little to no challenge, not to mention the different game modes don't even tell you how to play, you just have to guess based off the title of it.

Easy or difficult, both.
Unfortunately the sound effects were produced by creator blowing into the microphone possibly.
Lots of variations to make it what you feel like doing : relaxing, challenging, frustrating, visually pleasing. all these things.
Easily worth the money.

This game is aweful. It doesn't even tell you when you win. It just brings you back to the main menu.
It would have been nice to include some stats, such as: if you win the game!!! Maybe add your fastest victory; how many total ships you ended the game with...etc anything really!

The concept of the game is interesting, but beyond that is just a total fail. I recieved the game as a gift, but I see in the store it's 10.99$

Don't let that price deceive you, people are not paying 10$ for that game! Don't pay more than 0.29$

THE GOOD: Fast paced, easy to learn, intense, pretty colours, responsive, variety of match types.
THE BAD: Even with the varied match options it gets very same-ish, not enough people to play multiplayer, probably a bit too expensive for what you get.
A really simple concept that is a lot of fun and can lead to some very intense match ups! There is a free version available, but the matchmaking system is a bit ♥♥♥♥.

This game, as I see it, is THE MOST boiled-down RTS ever. You have a color. Planets generate ships depending on size. Ships attack and defend 1:1. Deplete a planet of enemy ships and it's yours. This sounds simple, but it plays out in frantically-paced battles where you have to micromanage planet-by-planet, while overarching resource-management also affects outcomes and turns of fate.

A round takes about ten minutes to play, so it's easy to get in a casual round. Unfortunately the server browser leaves a lot to be desired so sometimes you spend another 5 minutes looking for a game that hasn't started and isn't empty. There are still a number of regular players although there tend to be few populated servers to choose from.

Still, when this goes on sale, it is worth picking up just to witness the simple, elegant strategies that unfold when you remove all the crazy additional variables that most RTS games introduce. Galcon Fusion doesn't reinvent the genre, but it streamlines it better than anything else I've played. It's also available on a bunch of different platforms, so yay Galcon.

Buy it! And one protip: don't immediately attack someone with all your ships when a round starts! You might survive long enough to enjoy it!

Galcon Fusion is a micro-RTS, where you take over planets with ships and eventually conquer your opponents' forces.

I'll start off with the good. This is a simple game that's very easy to learn, and the simplicity of the graphics really helps. The battles are won or lost purely by numbers: troops will kill eachother one-for-one. As a result, battles come down to who can produce troops the quickest, and that will be the player with the most planets. It can lead to some interesting strategies... I had a three-way game where I held the most planets while being bombarded by the full might of the other players. Keeping my planets was a back-and-forth struggle, because I had to retake my planets within seconds or die a quick death, eventualy getting the smallest advantage that I could use to take one more planet.

Now, for the bad. The levels are randomly generated, which adds some diversity, but is often unfair. While there are many game modes, they still boil down to the same basic gameplay, and it gets repetitve (with added frustration from bad maps). And the controls are terrible on a PC. I played this on a tablet, and it was a little better, but I yelled at my computer a few times when I couldn't do what I wanted. This game requires quick thinking and rapid movement. It requires what StarCraft players would call "good micro strategy". Moving from one planet to another with clicking is fine, but dragging was unreliable (required to move troops to an allied planet). Multi-selecting planets is really useful, but double-clicking and box-dragging were both unreliable as well. It really sucks when you know what you want the game to do, but the game refuses to do it.

Also, the sound is slightly annoying.

Overall, This game is a fun diversion for a few hours, and not much more. I probably wouldn't pay over a dollar for this. There are plenty of games of similar quality on Kongregate (though I don't think those have multiplayer).

Great game where every battle is quick and fun! Play with your friends just as a time consumer or play against other players online. Multiplayer is infested with many professional strategists and you will most likely lose most of the time; you have been warned.

Space triangle warfare in a neat and entertaining package.

If things like plot, build orders and unit counters are your favourite things in RTS games, you might want to check out a different game.

There is one unit in Galcon Fusion: the space triangle. It defeats its enemies by crashing headfirst into them. For as long as you control a planet, it makes more space triangles. You can then use these to get more planets. Which, in turn, allows you to have more space triangles.

Sometimes, there are other players pitting their space triangles against yours. Standard protocol in those situations is to engage in space triangle warfare. Some other times, there are also allies who help you crush the enemy space triangles with their own.

So, just like bullets, you keep throwing space triangles at the enemy until it is no longer able to throw his own back at you.

Space Triangle Warfare.

Posted: June 3, 2014
Galcon is apparently a venerable series/genre of games, but this is one of the worse entries in it despite being by the original publisher. It lacks both any sort of singleplayer other than random skirmishes, and simple multiplayer features that are normally considered de rigueur, like private matches.

There's better, if somewhat less pretty, free Flash versions of it, basically. Or the cheap DSiWare knockoff Castle Conqueror series. And that's sad.

It's sort of fun for the lower difficulty levels, but it looks like the AI cheats from the Admiral level on up. The "three-way" mode becomes two AIs versus you, for example. Recommended at a low price.

Game is interesting, but no sense of matchmaking and fair maps takes away the chance to get good at it, especially if you are new to it, as every single game you play will be a loss. There are only 30-40 people playing it and they have been playing it for a while, so it's impossible to find any matches for your level.
And game is mostly defined by having a good start on the map, especially 1v1 is determined by a random dice roll while generating the map.

So If you like luck based games, try it. Otherwise you will just keep on quitting matches five seconds after looking into the map. I've found it similar to playing chess where a dice roll determines who gets which pieces. Even if you win, you won't know if it was skill, or luck.

Galcon Fusion is a very simple, very fun, slightly overpriced game. In the style of "liquid wars", it's a real-time strategy game where you send out your ships to capture planets, which generate more ships, so you can capture more planets. Doing this while your opponent tries the same is what makes it fun. TONS of different game modes and even a cute "retro mode" option make this an EXCELLENT buy for sub-five dollars. Don't get it at full price though.

Despite adding some fancy graphical upgrades and some new game modes, Galcon Fusion actually feels like a step back to me. I think Fusion focuses on single player being more of a test bed while multiplayer is the real point of the game. Legends had a much better focus and sense of direction because there was actually a story and universe to progress through and conquer.

As a person who is anything but a fan of competitive multiplayer, Fusion is superficially an improvement but as an experience feels entirely inferior to Legends.

One of the originators of RTS2X...

These games go away back to the 1970's, and were amazing. This game is really a reboot of those old games. In fact the F-10 retro mode in it harkens back to the first DEC and DECWAR games. Modern games like Auralux, Eufloria, and Gratitus Space Battles all owe their lineage to THIS GAME and it's ancestors.

One of the best, most satisfying games ever made, right here..
