Now Playing On Apple TV: Galaxy on Fire Manticore Rising

The 4th generation Apple TV has its very own App Store with all new apps and games to play on your TV. We’re going to highlight numerous new Apple TV apps and games with video in our new section, Now Playing On Apple TV.

Galaxy on Fire Manticore Rising continues the Galaxy on Fire game series, but now on the Apple TV with a game specifically made for the device. The game presents a 3D space shooter with deluxe aerial combat action as you pilot through intense dogfighting challenges. You play as Haley “Maticore” Snocom, and your job is to rescue stranded crew members, and defeat any space pirates in the process. There are tons of waves of enemies to battle through as you travel to new galaxies to add new crew members and take on bosses.

The game looks absolutely gorgeous on the TV with highly detailed 3D graphics that look outstanding in motion. There’s an Apple TV control scheme as you simply tilt the remote to pilot your ship. You can use the touchpad for additional abilities as you swipe upwards to boost, swipe left/right to roll, and swipe down to break. It’s a surprisingly intuitive and fluid control scheme that lets you be immersed in the 3D aerial combat.

Galaxy on Fire Manticore Rising ($5.99, Apple TV) is an early stand out on the Apple TV platform.

    DO NOT GIVE THIS COMPANY ANY MONEY, all my in-game assets were removed for no reason. I had my whole fleet, product of months of work, which my alliance was relying on, deleted mid transit because the planet they left from was destroyed. It makes no sense, not even in the context of the game. I was told it was deliberate and there will be no reparations. I paid cash to build up my account, and spent a lot of time slogging through what is, in essence, a mind-numbing game. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY.,
