Deep sandbox simulations aren't the type of game we tend to think of when we think of mobile titles. In fact, when last year's fantastic sandbox title Don't Starve was released, we didn't (and still don't) have a category to fit it into. I think we eventually settled on "simulation" and if you disagree with that, it was Kelsey's idea. (If you agree with it, it was my idea.) Star Nomad 2 is another game that bills itself as a sandbox title, allowing you to cruise about space and play the game in any manner you wish. It's been available on Steam since December, but found its way to the App Store this morning.

After typing that--admittedly stupid--headline, it dawned on me that XenoShyft has always offered a high sense of achievement. Not sure if you know this, but the game is hard. Freaky hard. Like, "I'm just happy I made it to the 2nd wave", hard. Thus, succeeding in even the most meager of ways can generate heart bursting pride. Of course, that sense of achievement wasn't what I was talking about. No, these are Achievements with a capital "A", goals which games use as proverbial carrots. Considering that I'm still playing and loving XenoShyft, I'm not sure a carrot is necessary but who am I to look a gift horse in the choppers?

Fans of sci-fi 4X gaming are well catered for in terms of both volume and quality. Yet among the hallmarks of the genre is a certain level of complexity and obfuscation. Stuff you just leave for the computer to keep track of, or work out for you. Sometimes, maybe, players have a yearning for something a bit more transparent, a little more comprehensible. A game where you can see the workings, like a tabletop board game. If that sounds like you, you're the target audience for Falling Stars: War of Empires.

We know Lock 'n Load Publishing from their rather huge library of tabletop wargames. Last month we mentioned that their light armor combat game Tank on Tank would be making its way to iPad (we'll have more on that development next week), but it seems that might not be the end of their mobile ambitions. This morning I received a press release for a new 4X game from LnL called Falling Stars: War of Empires. I looked into it and the failed Kickstarter for the game only mentions PC/Mac/Linux, as does LnL's website. The press release, however, clearly shows iOS as one of the game's platforms.

Nothing brings a twinkle to my eye like the madness and depravity that is Games Workshop's Horus Heresy setting. Well that and sour-mash bourbon but until I can figure a way to do home distillation with my iPhone I'm stuck using my iOS device for gaming. Even then, I'll have to wait to play Talisman: Horus Heresy from Nomad Games but lucky Android gamers can get the title right now.
