6 superb strategy games that are sublime in short sessions

Sometimes you simply don’t want to spend three hours guiding a troop of fragile units past an enemy horde. It can be frustrating to lose hours of progress because of a single misstep, and nothing’s worse than having to restart a battle because you forgot to save. However, there’s no sense in completely forgoing your strategy fix - and to help you out, we’ve chosen six titles that don’t require eons per session. 1. 868-HACK - it’s hard to think of a more mechanically complex iOS title than this one - and unfortunately, that’s probably a turn-off for many mobile gamers. But unlike other titles of similar depth, 868-HACK features concise 5 - 10 minute…

Hands-on with Tank Operations: European Campaign, which features lots and lots of hex tiles

Look how sweet these hex tiles are. Hnnng! And those highly detailed but really quite teensy units that move across the board? Dopeness. Here's our early look at Tank Operations: European Campaign, available on iPad on the 12th of February.…

Fangs-on with Lamp and Vamp, where a vampire just wants some kip

The people behind Mucho Party have a new game, and it's called Lamp and Vamp. In Lamp and Vamp you need to guide a vampire from its point of origin, all the way to its coffin, avoiding hordes of angry mobs along the way. It's impossible to get a bit of peace and quiet these days, isn't it? We saw Lamp and Vamp during the Very Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects in London, and grabbed some footage for you to have a peek for yourself. Lucky we used dedicated hardware to capture it, and not mirroring, eh? Because you wouldn't be able to see the main character. Because he's a vampire. … and you can't see vampires in mirrors. Oh suit yourself.…

Hands-on with Wars and Battles, in which hex-based strategy war gaming is actually way more entertaining than it sounds

Hands-on with Wars and Battles, in which hex-based strategy war gaming is actually way more entertaining than it sounds

These super involved strategy games that play out on hexagonal tiles are often a real drag, and I just can't find much energy to get into them. But Wars and Battles is a bit different. It's no less serious and po-faced than the other games on the market, but once you've got the hang of the simple controls, you stop faffing about fiddling and instead start thinking tactically about your approach to the varied situations you're given. Wars and Battles is pretty cool by my book, here's what it looks like in motion.…

Sci-fi strategy game Galcon Legends to conquer the App Store this Thursday

The Galcon series has always appealed to us. Playing out like a kind of real-time game of intergalactic Risk, its blend of simple controls, thoughtful strategy, and fast paced action. Now, developer Hassey Enterprises is back to add a layer of story to the space combat franchise with Galcon Legends. Coming to iOS on Thursday, this new instalment in the Galcon series brings some capitalist comedy to the strategic warfare. Playing as Buck the bill collector, your goal is to conquer the galaxy, crush the forces of love, and get paid. The action itself seems mostly unchanged from previous instalments. However, the promise of a more complete single player game, witty writing, and ne…
