Superlumina by Straight to Video Games AS ($2.99, 102.5 MB): Fight for survival against several alien species in this board-style turn-based strategy game. Thankfully, your exploration mission has included a full arsenal of units, from infantry to aircraft. However, it appears that the fleet hasn’t been properly prepared for an imminent conflict. As units make their way onto the battlefield, things are disorderly and far below capable effectiveness. Through an easy to learn match-3 combat system, arrange your soldiers, armored artillery, and so on into firepower increasing rows and defensive columns. Not only is play stifled by limited moves per turn and an environment so cramped that it feels like a sliding puzzle, but there’s also the obvious requirement of selecting proper units, i.e., you don’t want to place infantry against a group of artillery vehicles or aircraft. The game features hand-drawn 2.5-D graphics, dramatic instrumental soundtrack, four alien species, solo campaign, online head-to-head multiplayer and tournaments, as well as Game Center leaderboards and achievements. A limited mode trial version is available.
