FISHLABS has just updated Galaxy on Fire - Alliance with some new content, called “Different Worlds.”

The update includes visual and play enhancements/improvements. According the the release information from FISHLABS, "the complete overhaul of the 3D models of all structures in the game, for example, adds more details on the one hand while simultaneously boosting the in-game performance on the other. And the manual server selection, which had been high on the community’s wish list for months, not only enables the players to choose the servers they want to play on manually, but also to operate differing accounts on different servers on the same device. The restructured tutorial, in turn, helps newbie players to familiarize themselves with the complex gaming mechanics of Galaxy on Fire™ - Alliances more quickly and internalize the basic moves and maneuvers more efficiently."

The new updates adds in some fresh concepts such as heat map and limited time special deals and events feature.

Galaxy on Fire - Allinaces is available for free on the App Store.

Space diplomacy (not really) MMO Galaxy on Fire - Alliances has just received balancing and performance tweaks, bug fixes, and a bunch of new features in its latest "Space Travelers" update.

You can find the rather large list of improvements and added features below. Some of the most notable changes include new technologies to research, new challenges to complete in order to earn more experience and resources, an increase in the structure level cap from 10 to 20, shorter travel times in your home system, and the ability to see your carriers and their flight paths on the star map.

Galaxy on Fire 2 is going Supernova

It isn't much of a surprise to see that Galaxy on Fire 2, one of the App Store's most notable space adventures, is going to be getting a second in-game add-on pack. Let's face it, the game is excellent and the added content from Valkyrie was more than welcome. FishLabs deciding to follow it up with a second batch of new things was only natural. Thus we have (or will have, really) Supernova.

Supernova is set to pick up right after the events of Valkyrie. Keith is taking it easy at the Deep Science space station, but it's not long before another galactic peril makes itself known. The entire Mido sector suddenly finds itself threatened with annihilation as a supernova "of unknown origin" appears. Keith being Keith, he decides to get involved. The entire adventure is said to last "at least twice as long" as the previous add-on, with promises of 10 hours of gameplay, new mission types, more ships and more story.

Dates and pricing aren't available at the moment, but it's probably safe to assume it'll cost about as much as Valkyrie ($4.99) and will be out sometime in the second quarter of this year. Be sure to keep a look out for release blurbs.

Galaxy on Fire 2 Glides onto iOS in October

Posted by Blake Grundman on August 16th, 2010

German developer Fishlabs are no rookies to the world of portable game development. Founded way back in 2004, the team has developed for a number of mobile platforms with the iPhone being their most recent target. Back in October of last year, they released their original sci-fi shooter, Galaxy on Fire, to middling reviews from 148Apps.com.

With such mediocre review scores it would hard to justify a sequel, but that doesn’t seem to be discouraging them one bit. Yesterday they let news slip that not only was Galaxy on Fire 2 on the way, but it would be playable in a beta form at GamesCon next week in Cologne Germany. The game was also christened with an official-ish release window of sometime in October.

Galaxy On Fire

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Hall on April 30th, 2009
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: STALE
Galaxy On Fire is a perfectly playable game, but suffers from general blandness. Everything in the game, except the good commerce system, seems like it had been done before, making this game unfortunately seem like a trip into extreme mediocrity.
