Galaxy on Fire Review

Your ship gets hit by a laser. You flip around and shoot them back, blasting them into a million pieces. You are Keith T. Maxwell, the protagonist in the game, Galaxy on Fire, $2.99, by FISHLABS.
In Galaxy on Fire, you control one of multiple ships, flying around the galaxy, doing missions and purchasing new gear to improve your spaceship, its weapons, and everything about it.  The galaxy is huge, and there are endless possibilities. There are amazing graphics,
 and great 3D cutscenes.  
To control your ship, you have a choice of either tilt controls or a virtual joystick. I prefer the tilt controls only because the it is annoying to drag the joystick, and I would prefer a d-pad. You press a button on the right side of the screen to shoot your weapon.  There are many types of missions in the game, ranging from shooting space junk to escorting a criminal to his home planet.
The game was good, but for me, it just wasn't very fun. I was going in space, shooting things, and getting blown up. It seemed like it would take forever to unlock new weapons, because I was getting money so slowly. I just wasn't entertained by the game like I am with some other games.

Great Graphics
Lots of Gameplay
2 Control Options

No real "fun factor"

Bottom Line: Get Galaxy on Fire if you are a fan of space shooters, but if you are a casual gamer, it is not for you.

Graphics: 4.5/5
Gameplay: 3.5/5
Controls: 4.5/5

Overall: 8/10 (not an average)
