This is the first time either game has been free.

Galaxy on Fire 2 HD itunes store link.

Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD is a premium-quality 3D space combat and trading simulation with adventure and RPG elements. Take over the role of the hot-headed space war veteran Keith T. Maxwell and save the galaxy from its impeding destruction by the hands of devious alien raiders, ruthless space pirates and power-crazy madmen!

Great Big War Game itunes store link.

Taking military "advice" from the ridiculous generalissimo, can you battle your way through this truly massive, content-packed military campaign? Plan your missions, deploy your "forces", try not to fall off the sofa laughing!

Great Big War Game is like Advance Wars, just with 3D graphics instead of the Nintendo anime style. Good game.

I got GoF 2 at the end of November and I know I didn't pay for it. Hm. Maybe it was the non-HD version, although I seem to remember the graphics being pretty nice.

The game was freaking awesome until I got to a battle that was impossible to win. I tried it over and over and over and could not even kill one enemy ship before getting destroyed. It was very strange -- the difficulty level was so far beyond anything I'd experienced in the game to that point that it turned me off the game and I just stopped playing.

I get the feeling that maybe it wanted me to buy a (much) better ship (with real money for IAP). Maybe I'll check it out again.

I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but that's really what I was hoping when I was downloading it from the app store. Great to hear, cos I loved Advance Wars!

Great Big War Game and it's original smaller counterpart Great Little War Game are both fantastic games. Turn based tactical on iOS done right. (and with a great sense of humor too)

Can you tell me if Great Little War Game is a subset of Great Big War Game? If I have Big, is there any reason to also have Little?

GLWG isn't a subset, but just about everything was upgraded in the sequel so you may miss a lot going backwards. (no asynch multiplayer, no air force, lower quality graphics)

That said if you generally play solo, and are bored with GBWG, just playing through the solo campaign of GLWG would be worthwhile.

For someone entirely new to the franchise I'd suggest starting with GLWG which is great on it's own and after you've played it completely through moving on to GBWG.

That's exactly what I needed to know. Thank you.

LOVED GoF2, and for free! Anyone who doesn't jump on this is mad, I tells ya.

Downloaded Great Big War Game, and I like the game; hate the cutscenes, but I guess I can't complain to much for CAD$0 (USD$0.05).

GoF 2 is a great iPad space dogfight game. I'm really glad I could get in on this for free. I recommend it.

Thanks for the heads up on this!
