Turn based zombie slaying, racing with big guns and location based gang wars are where it’s at this week. Tactical Soldier – Undead Uprising (TMA Review) turns zombie hunting into a thinking man’s game, which makes it different than just about any other undead simulation around. Death Rally brings the big guns back to overhead track racing, and you’ll get to go head to head with the likes of Duke Nukem (while he’s waiting Forever for his own game again). For the rebellious socialite there’s Mob Empire, a game that lets you check in to real world locations to use as your territorial bases of operation as you conquer the world.
The world is sometimes a very strange place. Not long ago, I remarked in my review of Hunters: Episode One (TMA Review) that the App Store was suspiciously devoid of Tactical Strategy Games. And in the space of a few weeks I’m writing another review of such a game: Tactical Soldier – Undead Rising. Born out of a strange marriage of classic top-down party RPGs and Strategy Games, this unique genre for the true masters of tactical planning has long been a favourite of PC gamers around the world. Being excellently suited for iDevice portable gaming, I’m glad that it is gaining traction on the platform.
