Multiplayer turn-based strategy game UFHO2 lands on iPad

UFHO2, a geometric turn-based multiplayer strategy game, was originally launched on PC after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Now, after more than two years, developer Tiny Colossus has finally bought the game to iPad.

Competing against your friends, you must guide your alien avatar around a maze collecting as many gems as possible along the way. You can complete a set number of moves each turn, and a time limit in which to make your decisions.

The mazes are made up of seven interlocking hexagonal areas, each with seven further hexagonal rooms inside them. With both areas and rooms able be rotated during your turn, you will find yourself opening and closing off multiple paths as you try and make your way to the next gem. This leaves plenty of options for sabotage when you see your friends near their next gem.

If you are still scratching your head as to how all that plays out you can check out the video below.

UFHO2 is one of those board game-styled experiences that could never be fully realised on a physical board. It may have just found its ideal home on the iPad, however, where you can throw it down mid-coffee break and go head-to-head against your buddies.

If you have an iPad then you can grab it from the App Store now for £2.49 / $3.99.
