Limited Time Offer - Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD available at HALF PRICE!

One of my all-time fav games ever, Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD, is on sale for a limited time at 50% off ($4.99). This game is a smorgasbord of awesome 3D space action and adventure for iPad and iPhone! You can spend hours just trading and exploring/hopping from world to world, building your own home grown weapons, and upgrading your ship. Sometimes, for kicks I turn guns on a friendly, become a space pirate and see how long I can survive! Of course, you can also immerse yourself fully in the storyline and play along with the main game objectives. Whichever way you go, it's just good old-fashioned fun and it's now half priced! More info follows the break...
