10 of the best space opera games ever
Best space games – Galaxy on Fire II HD (2011, iPad and Android)
While the cartoon style of Angry Birds still prevails in tablet gaming, Galaxy on Fire II HD proves that there's a lot more to these biscuit-thin portables than rendering sprites. The game looks fantastic on the iPad and Honeycomb Android tablets and is out on Mac and PC too. Be warned: the main system requirement is a sense of humour. Laughing at the voice acting and pretending it's intentionally atrocious allows you to enjoy it as an interactive, galactic sit-com.
