Galaxy on Fire 2

Fishlabs's Silver Award-winning Galaxy on Fire 2 is an ambitious space-based adventure game in which you step into the shoes of hot-headed soldier-for-hire Keith T. Maxwell.

Unfortunately, your galaxy is under threat from unscrupulous alien raiders, ruthless space pirates, and power-hungry madmen, and, naturally, you're the only bruiser in the universe that's brave enough to try and kick their asses.

Galaxy on Fire 2 isn't all about explosive battles and fast-paced dogfights, though. You'll need to mine asteroids and trade valuable items if you wish to equip your spacecraft with powerful weapons and other upgrades.

If you do decide to download this title, be sure to grab Pocket Gamer's official Galaxy on Fire 2 Guide iPad app [buy], too.



Verticus

Verticus is a pretty new iPhone and iPad game from Stan Lee - the legendary co-creater of Spider-Man, Iron Man, and several other comic book heroes.

Your aim in this action-adventure title is to prevent the destruction of earth at the hands of an evil alien race known as The Obliterators. How? By free-falling through the atmosphere into the planet's centre.

So, who exactly are you? Well, you're a superhero (surprise, surprise) called Verticus, and you're equipped with a ├╝ber-high-tech heat-resistant jumpsuit that will protect you against obstacles and alien attacks.

You can upgrade your suit with the materials that you collect throughout your adventure.



Download both games now, and be sure to grab the best free apps every day via the Free App Alliance app.
