Taking over the galaxy, one planet at a time…
For a "Lite" version, Galcon Lite is heavy-loaded with ten (!) levels of gameplay and numerous game boards. Galcon Lite can certainly hold its own, but for those who crave a challenge against non-AI competitors and additional game stages, the full version of Galcon ($4.99) would be a wise investment.
