Galaxy Trucker, the award-winning board game developed by the renowned Czech game designer Vlaaďa Chvátil, has just successfully docked on iPhone.
Galaxy Trucker made its debut on iOS with the launch of its iPad version three months ago. Now, it has landed on iPhone as well with the release of Galaxy Trucker Pocket.
As in Galaxy Trucker for iPad, Galaxy Trucker Pocket challenges you to build space ships out of sewer pipes and take them on a rousing adventure in deep space, dodging meteors and fighting enemies as you go.
In single-player mode, the game pits you against a dozen AI personalities in a special campaign. In multiplayer mode, it lets you play with three other aspiring truckers on one shared device (turn-based pass-and-play) or online (real-time or asynchronous).
