Originally a Ludum Dare competition entry, the improved version of Galcon
by Phil Hassey now includes an online multiplayer mode and net ranking. Up to twelve players can participate in one single game, with team options and all tracked statistics available at the push of a button.
Instructions are quite simple. Left click on a planet to select, then right click to start an invasion. It's also possible to draw a line from one location to another for a similar effect. New orders can also be issued to a fleet during an invasion or cancelled altogether by left clicking on any ship.
Conquer larger planets to increase ship production. The scroll wheel can be used to command the size of your invasion fleet. A free version with Ludum Dare levels and enemy AI is still available from the download page, though multiplayer is where most of the fun can be had.
