Galcon

Galcon is an awesome high-paced multi-player galactic action-strategy game. In the game you send swarms of ships from planet to planet to take over the galaxy. It's like arcade action Risk with planets! Anyone can play, and it only takes 30 seconds to learn. Multi-player network games support up to 12 players with teams, and 15 different single player missions against 7 different computer players are provided.

            Release Notes: Teams are now represented in game by coloring the aura (atmosphere) of the planets the color of the team. This makes it much easier to follow the action in team games. The /banlist and /adminlist commands have been added, and the /admin and /ban commands have been updated to work even when the user isn't signed onto the server. The game now includes F4 to take a screenshot. By default, it saves the image to your desktop, but you can change that in the options.
