Tux Machines (TM)-specific
When Galcon Fusion was released for GNU/Linux I thought it was another of those simple games that I will play for 10 minutes and lose interest very quickly – but I was so wrong…
This is one of the most addictive games I have ever played !
After 10 minutes of playing I just had to buy it.
When you start the game you have a very simple tutorial which sums up all the basics of gameplay.
In the beginning of each game you start with one (or up to three in MP) planet which generates spaceships at specific rate (each planet has an “production” number, larger planets build spaceships faster).
You have to conquer all enemy planets buy taking neutral planets and building a fleet using many strategies (which come to use with 3 player game, specially in MP).
