Wow. Just... wow. Not only has the awesome turn-based tactical game XCOM 2 been released for the iPad and iPhone, but it’s a hugely impressive port with very few concessions made for the transition, and a huge amount of additional material included with no further purchases required. Along with the main XCOM 2 game, The XCOM 2 Collection gives you four DLC packs and the War of the Chosen expansion pack. At the price, that’s a bargain.

Set in 2035, 20 years after XCOM – Enemy Unknown and XCOM – Enemy Within, this sequel assumes the humans lost the war. Aliens now rule the Earth through the puppet ADVENT Administration, and most XCOM members submitted to their rule. But not all. There’s an underground resistance dedicated to fighting back, and that’s where you come in. Piloting the Avenger, a captured supply barge kitted out as XCOM’s mobile base, you must take the fight back to the aliens.
