Galcon is what someone once referred to as “space Risk in real-time”, and that’s a fairly accurate description. It’s basically a fast action/strategy game with multi-player support. The goal is to conquer planets by sending swarms of ships to them: if you send more ships than the enemy to a planet, you’ll conquer it, and each planet generate new ships.

One objection I have is that Galcon lacks balance in the single-player mode: the game is way too easy on the first couple of difficulty levels, and then it suddenly gets way too hard.
