There are all kinds of monsters lurking in the depths of the ocean. The same can be said of outer space in Galaxy Siege 2, an Android game that tasks you with building a perfect craft to annihilate alien swine. After spending the better part of a week with the game, we’re back with our Galaxy Siege 2 review.
Galaxy Siege 2 is a game about building a ship from modules, and destroying every alien you come across. When you head off to a planet, you get the opportunity to buy new modules for your ship or tweak the existing layout. It’s a drag and drop affair, and it’s well done as swapping and arranging modules is a breeze. After you setup your ship, you blast off into space and the fun begins…
Your ship isn’t going to be sleek by any means, but it’ll get the job done and controlling it is as simple as touching the left or right side of the screen. You basically steer while your weapons modules fire, and your scavenging modules pull in stars and gems. Each stage has a boss, and they get a little funkier as you progress through the game. Once you beat the baddie, you can redo your ship then it’s rinse and repeat until you defeat all the stages.
There are a couple of space-based ship building games out there including Star Command, FTL and our personal favorite, Out There. Each game is a bit different than the rest, and that’s the case with Galaxy Siege 2. It’s not the deepest game of the bunch, but it’s quite a bit of fun and it’s not geared towards in-app purchases.
If you dig space sims in the vein of FTL, Galaxy Siege 2 is well worth a look as these types of games are far and few between on Android. It’s free to download, and you can pick it up on Google Play if you want to give it a go.
