Galaxy on Fire 3: Manticore

Galaxy on Fire 2 is the second game set in the Galaxy on Fire universe, and takes place thirty-five years after GoF3D.

Plot

The series' protagonist, Keith T. Maxwell, is shot thirty-five years into the future by a hyperdrive malfunction, caused during a pirate ambush. After some time, an ore trader named Gunant Breh finds Maxwell's crippled ship drifting in space and brings it to the Var Hastra mining station. The player learns to use the main features of GoF2, including outfitting a ship, mining, and fighting pirates. After completing the tutorial, the player is given Gunant's old ship, Betty, and taken to Terran territory by a Terran convoy. There, the player learns of the Void Threat and battles them throughout the rest of the storyline, eventually destroying their capability to launch attacks in the galaxy.


Galaxy on Fire 2 has numerous improvements over its predecessor, Galaxy on Fire 3D, most notably in its more extensive campaign and trading system; along with its addition of new weapons and equipment, additional mission types, and hidden systems and blueprints. The player is also able to fly their ship through the game universe even when not on a mission, giving Galaxy on Fire 2 a much more immersive and interactive game experience.

The sequel also has 4 different difficulties: Easy, Normal, Hard and Extreme. Easy is only available in iOS SD and PC/Mac Full HD.
