XCOM: Enemy Unknown Comes to iOS

I recently finished this game on the PS3. I wasn’t going to buy it and I guess I didn’t as I got it through my PS+ subscription, but I started playing it and I couldn’t stop.. I stayed up past 1am many nights in a row just sitting playing it. I was very much surprised by just how much I enjoyed it, so if you haven’t played it give it a try! Anyway, the news today is that you can now get it on iOS devices for $19.99, and from the the screenshot I got it looks pretty good!
