The HD version of Jet Set Games' popular wacky iPhone turn-based strategy game has arrived on iPad for an introductory price of $2.99£1.79. If you've been looking for a quality strategy sim on your iPad, you could do a lot worse, as it's already getting rave reviews on the App Store. Well, it does come from the makers of Command & Conquer after all!
The HD version of the game features high-resolution artwork and re-designed maps, and all of it wrapped up with Highborn's trademarked wit and colourful characters. Gameplay switched between two different types of strategy game, with players moving forces around on an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, before diving into 3D combat to use the advantages you've gained against the enemy.
The game is designed to be pick-up-and-play, and players can unlock hero characters as they make their way through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles. There are also over 20 single-player and multiplayer achievements to unlock, such as judicious use of turns, using units as bait, and making it through an entire mission without capturing support structures.
