An open world 3D shoot'em-up
Galaxy on Fire is a superb space-opera adventure game, period. Although it should be strictly considered a 3D shoot'em-up, the vast amount of ships, upgrades and, oh at last, characters and hours of storyline, makes of it something special seldom seen before even on consoles and PCs. We should start considering some mobile videogames as videogames in all its magnitude.
3D graphics are gorgeous, but the best part are the smooth animations and the beautiful voice-overs, so put your headphones on and don't take your eyes off the screen because it's a real luxury to see how enemy ships burn in flames and how shields react to incoming attacks, just to name a few of the wonders that would make cry a Nexus 5 near the Tannhauser Gate.
Storyline, much like any good oldie sci-fi pulp story, is about a bounty hunter with good heart, a ship malfunctioning and a handful of lovely cliches that make sense to an unfolding and enthralling story.
Requires more than 900Mb of additional download and a brief while to check and extract files. In addition, there are up to five extra downloadable chapters with literally tons of new stuff regarding ships, weaponry and even new ways to trade goods and new chapters to the plot. The core game can be played for free, these add-ons must be payed separately and range from $1 to $9. It supports ten different languages, two difficulty levels and controls via either on-screen joypad or accelerometer, as your prefer.
This version is suited for Sony Xperia devices.

The story get to the mission where you have to destroy the void mother ship, and the guys ship won't move!!!! I destroyed all the void ships, but he just sits there. Help.
Is this game optimized for the HTC One? It's still a fun game.
Uninstalling till HD expansions come to Android, my Optimus G eats these low detail models for breakfast. Will reinstall and pay when I see HD. :(
Delivers what it says, awesome controls for the Xperia Play. I wonder if there will be more from them.
