I'm only posting this up here because there is a really really high chance of it happening

So on the Free App A Day Facebook page, earlier today they posted this:


Now if we compare that to the very first picture of the app info on Galaxy On Fire 2 SD


It might take you a while to spot it, but once you do....

I'll just put this here: everyone is prone to mistakes. This game has not been confirmed to be free yet, so it might not even happen. If it does, go ahead, fire all of the abuse you want at me (and send massive hate mail to FAAD). I do apologise if it doesn't go free and your dreams are crushed. I am really sure about this though, as are many other people.

If it does happen, then I give you this. DOWNLOAD IT!!! It is a absolutely amazing game. I was cautious when I got it, since I hadn't played any other game in this genre before, but you will not regret it. Heres a tally list why:
-Massive solar system to explore (there are a lot of planets)
-Massive career mode of 10hrs+ (and thats if your excusing valkerie and supernova)
-Lots of ships, weapons and useful items (I ditched the career mode for an in-game total of about 8 hours just to get a great offensive ship)
-Amazing graphics (both SD and HD)
-SD version can support all devices iOS 4 and over (sorry 1st gens)
-Really addictive (I clocked up about 10 hours in less than 2 days)
-It's just an absolutely awesome game, and there will likely be more content updates soon

It's also another factor to acknowledge that we don't know if only the SD version is going free, only the HD version is going free, or both versions are going free

I think thats enough info for now

P.S sorry if links don't work, I did this all on the iOS app

Edit 1:Thanks for the summary Mr. Biggles. I tried getting it to work on here, but it failed
Great guess!!

If you have a save started in the SD version and then install the HD version and run it, it's supposed to give you the Valkyrie mission pack for free I think.

So get it even if you won't use it for a while.

Not without doing the IAP I think... but you can play it in the HD version for free. If there's a way to make it work the other way around, I'm not sure unless it involves cloud syncing the save or something. Maybe the Fishlabs guy will mention how this works.

Since I never buy IAP, this was the reason I bought both versions of the game (plus the non-HD version is better on my Son's 4th Gen iPodTouch.

Is this game still fun on an iPhone screen? Or should I download it straight to the iPad?
