From developer Ninja Bee comes the latest in iPhone ports from the Xbox 360 Live Arcade title Kaloki Outpost X, Kaloki War. Adapted from the War Story section of the 360 release, Kaloki War has players taking control of a small space station and building numerous add-ons to not only maintain resources and keep incoming customers happy but also prepare for invading aliens.

Players take control of their space station by tapping the empty ports and selecting the appropriate structure to build. You’ll then need to effectively juggle science, trade, repair, energy, and eventually defence structures in order to keep your space station running effectively. You can also adjust the settings of each building to bring in higher profits or resources.

The detailed and smooth 3D visual presentation is a real treat, and quite surprising for such a small file size. The sound features some great sound effects complimented by a jazzy, spacey composition but doesn’t offer players iPod access. The game is single player only but players have the option to play through the story campaign or set up quick match types.

In Kaloki War, the core Kaloki Outpost X gameplay is still here with the focus being more on defence modes, as well as general maintenance. The game itself is easy to play and the visual presentation is quite impressive. So if you’re a fan of tycoon management games or the War Story aspect of the original Xbox 360 release, then this game is for you.
