Star-Fox Like Game

I am a big fan of the Star Fox series and I'm wondering what's the closest experience to that I can get in the App Store. And yes I would prefer it to be in Space


I have beta tested 57 games,
Now a reviewer at App Score!,

Yeah, galaxy on fire is the best but you are pretty much out of luck.

It looks pretty good but it's pretty old as well. How are the controls?

Same here lol. I am pretty sure it has a lite version though. It seemed to play pretty well and is still on my (rather large) list of apps to get sometime in the future.

One thing that turned me off about that game is the price 5.99 for a game from June last year? lol I'll wait for a sale.

Controls are good, you can choose between accelerometer or touch controls.
It's a big game too, the map is massive.
You basically go around between space stations and planets where you will find jobs which you can do such as transporting someone, clearing minefields, hunting bandits, taking down big space ships etc. The jobs earn you money which you can spend on new ships and upgrades.
It's a great game, I would definitely recommend it.

Galaxy on Fire 2 has been announced -- you may want to hold off till it comes out, since it's supposed to be a big improvement over the original (which wasn't bad in the first place).
