Have you ever wanted to build a spaceship and soar through the infinite abyss of the universe seeing how long your contraption will last? Of course you have, and now you can with Galaxy Trucker for iPad.

It's based on the classic boardgame and sees you using randomly allocated sewer pipes to build the best ship you can. There are meteors to dodge, enemies to evade, and plenty of space to go and die in.

There's a single player mode that features 12 different AI personalities, as well as plenty of multiplayer options. There's pass-the-device, and asynchronous and real-time online play as well.

We'll have a review up on the site this week, but if that brief description has tickled your fancy, head on over to the App Store where you can grab Galaxy Trucker for the special launch price of £2.99 / $4.99.
