Game fans have been waiting a long time for the sequel to Galaxy on Fire, and finally, Galaxy on Fire 2 is here. Check out it and some other cool offerings in today’s Fresh Apps.

Galaxy on Fire 2 (iPhone) $6.99

Fans of the first Galaxy on Fire game have had to wait more than a year for this sequel, but it’s finally here and developer, Fishlabs, promises more sci-fi shooter action in the second installment.

Boasting 10 hours of gameplay, tons of voice acting, arcade space ship dogfighting and RPG elements, Galaxy on Fire 2 sounds like it only improves on the first game. Graphically, the game is beautiful, and it’s on sale for its release today, with the price jumping $2 more in the near future.

Also, if you didn’t already read about it in our Download Discounts, the first Galaxy on Fire game is free today. Grab it and get filled in on the Galaxy on Fire story.

Summit – Basecamp (iPhone) $3.99

Here’s an app designed specifically for people who use the project management software system Basecamp, which allows people on a team to communicate and complete tasks. Summit interacts with your Basecamp account to keep you connected to your work wherever you are.

The handy little app seems to be primarily useful for keeping track of updates to projects, but it also includes the ability to make changes on the fly when you need to, or to complete or re-open Basecamp’s “Milestone” tasks so that other team members can see what you’re up to as well. You can also send and receive messages to Basecamp users through the app.
