AntiSquad Tactics Offers Colorful Turn-Based Combat In Both Free-To-Play And Premium Versions

Tactical strategy is an interesting hybrid game genre, combining the thinking and placement of a strategy title with the turn-based combat and slow burn improvements of an RPG. AntiSquad Tactics is the first original take on squad strategy we've seen in a while, and unlike games such as X-COM, it's designed for mobile first. But what might interest the purist gamers in the audience is that AntiSquad is available in both a free-to-play and a premium version.

In Bio Inc. - Biomedical Plague, Disease Is Your Weapon And Patients Are The Enemy

After 20 minutes of playing Bio Inc., I feel like a horrible, horrible person. Poor John Smith was already overweight, a chronic fast food eater, and a compulsive smoker, and I went out of my way to target his respiratory system. I gave him lung cancer. I gave him bronchitis. And when his doctors realized something was wrong, I went after his ticker and gave him angina, then a full-on heart attack.

[New Game] Highly-Regarded Interactive Storytelling Game 'King Of Dragon Pass' Hits Android Priced At $9.99

Strategy games are generally more thought-provoking affairs than your average platformer or shooter, but they're still usually packed with plenty of on-screen action to hold players' interest. King of Dragon Pass, which is now newly available for Android, is no such game. This title is more of an interactive novel, and while gamers will still encounter warfare here, it's presented in a much different form.

King of Dragon Pass began as a PC game in 1999 and followed the trials of a barbarian clan as it expanded into untamed lands.

[New Game] Qvadriga Is An Excellent Tactical Chariot Racing Management Sim Going For $10

Forget modern day racing. As dangerous as getting behind the wheel of a car going over 200mph in an oval may be, it doesn't compare to hopping on the back of a chariot being dragged by speeding horses and attacked by spiked wheels. When stepping up to the challenge, planning is every bit as important as fortitude, which is why Qvadriga is as much a strategy game as it is a racing one.

Hitman GO Review: The Most Satisfyingly Violent Board Game You'll Ever Play

The Hitman games have been a staple of third-person stealth action for years. I still remember playing the original on PC many moons ago and being absolutely floored at the detail-oriented gameplay – you had to actually hide unconscious bodies to avoid raising the alarm and disguises only worked so well. Gaming as a whole has advanced considerably since then, but Hitman GO is an attempt to distill that stealthy combat experience into a clean and easy to play package for mobile devices.
