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).

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.

The admins really suck, they will kick you for being new. That, and the fact that the game is so buggy that half the games end up broken really is terrible. Would not reccomend getting.

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!
