The "Next Generation" of the Galaxy PBE, developed from the old Galaxy code by (among others) Frans Slothouber.

In GalaxyNG you're the leader of a sentient, spacefaring race, and your goal is to destroy/occupy all other players' ships and planets.

You have complete control over 5 parameters of the spaceship-designs: drive, shields, cargo, amount of guns and weapons, and the strength of each parameter can be increased by research.

Researched technology can be fitted onto a ship by upgrading it (which takes a turn), or by scrapping it, and building a new one (which takes as many turns as it takes to build that type of ship).

New features include (from Galaxy):

  • Lots of bug fixes
  • An "AutoUnload" option
  • A new set of battle rules
