It is the 4th millenium and mankind is at war with the Vossk Empire for the
control of many star systems. Keith T. Maxwell is a mercenary working for
criminals, the Terran Alliance and even the Vossk Empire, using his booty to
better his business.
_Galaxy on Fire_ is a 3D space shooter with trade elements. The player takes
on the role of Maxwell, engaging on missions for money and goods which can be
traded with 10 different species. The price of goods fluctuate according the
offer and demand from 500 planets and space stations. Ten spaceships are
available to be chosen from and can be upgraded with new weapons, shields,
drives and such.
The spaceship is controlled from a third person view in missions such as
escorting transport fleets or combats against the Vossks. Controls include
shooting (which can be set to auto-fire), changing weapons and activating an
afterburner (which has to be recharged after use).
