Description

NOTE: Galactic Reign servers will be shut down February 2014 and after this time the application will no longer be playable and will not work on your device. Galactic Reign is a head-to-head game of tactical expansion and conquest. You and your opponent colonize planets, design ships, and build fleets as you fight for domination of the galaxy. Ship design is crucial, as you must predict what their opponent is building and construct ships to counter it. When opposing fleets meet, the battle is rendered on the cloud, showing the result in a stunning cinematic movie. Galactic Reign is turn based. You and your opponent take your turns whenever you like, and the game advances when you both have submitted your actions. In addition to player vs player strategy, Galactic Reign features an extensive collection of single player missions that challenge you to use clever ship design to defeat enemy fleets.

SHUTTING DOWN

They are shutting the game down. Don't waste your time or money. I feel cheated. Find a game you like, and then BAM! no more game.

Does not appear to run in background

Since it is an app it takes the full screen and when I task to do other things and come back it has not made progress in generating the battle! My screen is high rez 2560x1440. Why do apps have to take up the whole screen? I am a multi-tasker and like to see when programs are ready for me. In my opinion apps for a computer equals fail.

Don't bother

The ship outfitting is kind of cool, and the graphics are fun. But calculating and downloading the graphics to be displayed takes much too long. Waiting for the graphics is like waiting in line for 2 hours for a 1.5 min ride.

The reason why I dislike RTS games.

Its a cool concept I'll admit that at least. But this whole rendering on the cloud then waiting to download the battle results seriously takes the player out of the game. I can't play a game that bogged down.

This must stay!

I just heard about this game - if it must die, it must resurrect! This game is way too awesome - it's like making and watching your own action movie scene! It removes the imagination of the outcome of the turn with a realistic video!

Fun!

It's a simplified, turn based version of sins of a solar empire. You get notification when your turn is ready in multiplayer. I just play multiple games concurrently. It's neat little game.

I'm glad it is back! Best game ever!!

At first I didn't think I'd like it, but now I really like it! I wish the battle renders were a bit longer. And I wish they had a text version of the battle since much of the action gets skipped and i wonder how certain units fared in battle.
