Robot Circus brings turn based battler Ticket to Earth to mobile
Turn-based grid battler Ticket to Earth is finally out on mobile. I first saw this promising game what seems like a lifetime ago. In Ticket to Earth, the board grid is played like a strategic match-3 game. Connect the tiles to increase / trigger certain powers. The strategy involved is where the player under control ends up. Too close to the bad guys and they will strike. Too far and the player can’t strike them.
Ticket to Earth is a good strategy game that melds a couple styles that work well on mobile together. The game play time is a bit long for a casual player, but just right if you like strategy games and are willing to devote a little time in a play session.

Aftershock brings quick play to card battlers
Aftershock is the new title from Wonderspark that came out of the development of Give Me Fuel (soft launched last year). I’ve been watching the development for just about a year and it’s come a long way. The goal was to come up with a tactical / strategy game that could be played on mobile and in short play times. In this version a single player adventure mode has been added that, in a nice twist, uses location data and fitness records to tailor the characters abilities.
If you like strategy games, but hate the long playtimes, give this a shot.

Pocket Troops is a 'bite-sized war game' - 4/5 from Gamezebo
Pocket Troops is the sort of bite-sized war game that makes for a good fit on a mobile platform. It’s involved enough to keep your attention, but hands-off enough that you don’t really feel like you have to hover over it at all times. Plus the tiny, angry army dudes are adorable!
As simple as it is and as little direct interaction as there might be, I do think Pocket Troops is pretty enjoyable. It’s ideal for playing a few minutes at a time, whenever you have a spare moment and the desire to. And I do loves me some soldier training and upgrading. But it’s definitely not going to blow anyone away with its strategic depth.
