Galaxy on Fire 2 comes to iPhone, iPad [by Fishlabs]

In recent months, the galactic rumour mill has been buzzing, and we have frequently been asked if and when we are going to bring out Galaxy on Fire™ 2 for the iPhone. First, the good news: yes, we are bringing out GoF2 on the iPhone and we have been working all out on it since October of last year. But we still need quite a while, because GoF2 is an unbelievable complex and extensive game - and our quality standards for what we want to offer you are, as ever, high. To make the wait a little more bearable and to give you an impression of just how all-encompassing the work is and which details we are polishing, we will begin describing all of this regularly in our developer diary, starting now. To take a more laid back approach to all of this, we will let those mainly responsible speak for themselves in interviews.

Looks awesome. I loved the first one, although I never managed to complete it.

Wow. This looks unbelievable compared to the first one (which I loved). Can't wait for this! Hopefully it's at least a summer release. The new graphics look excellent.

Seems like "Galaxy On Fire 2" is not the only surprise from FISHLABS for Their fans:

(From www.blog.FISHLABS.net/en)

The sequel to the space epic has set standards in the Java field similar to Part 1 and, thanks to the even more open game design, offers significantly greater potential to be a megahit on the iPhone. So you can look forward to seeing Keith and other acquaintances from the first part once again later this year and play the Alien part for the first time in the Mission Pack in summer. And to keep the wait from being all too boring, we will keep you up-to-date with the status of the development with a regular developer’s diary.
Mission Pack for Galaxy On Fire 1!

GOF 2 is alot more advanced. it has a lot of stuff to trade, secrets, strategy and you can choose if you want a shooter ship or one with larger cargo and turrets etc. and of course it is open space! (those are things that were in the java version that I played. Edit: my stats show more than 3 days of gameplay and still not bored of it.)
