Latest Addiction: XCOM on iOS

Totally and completely addicted to this game. It's a squad, turn based strategy game that was ported over to iOS a few months ago. It's normally $19.99, but I got lucky and nabbed it at 50% off a month or so ago (compared to the console edition that is currently $29.99).

While the price tag may seem steep, it is definitely packed to the brim with value to justify the price-tag. It's a console quality game on iPad, with an excellent adaptation to touchscreen control.

On one hand, you have strategic turn based combat, balancing risk and rewards as you tactically position your team. The mechanics are simple enough, but can be pretty unforgiving when you get careless. At the same time, you have a true sense of achievement when you make a smart move.

I haven't finished the game yet, but so far I love it. If this type of touch-based, strategic gaming sounds interesting to you - now is the time to pick it up! The game is on sale for $9.99 on the App Store today (50% off of the normal price).
