When I’m not in the mood to surf the entirety of the App Store, I can always trust on the Games category because it’s many subcategories guarantees something beyond their own Top 50 lists will qualify for our humble little website. Yet, I sometimes can’t help but look in anxious anticipation at “fringe” games that are so close to being outside of the Top 50 that I can taste it. Many of those games I have downloaded on a hunch that one day very soon, I can finally recommend them to our faithful readers. So far, my luck has been 50/50, but today is the greatest day I’ve ever known: UniWar, a critically acclaimed turn-based strategy game from Xpressed, has temporarily fallen outside of the Top 50 for Board and Strategy. Why ‘temporarily’? Well, let’s look at the facts: Xpressed is also known as Javaground USA, a mobile dev studio that has been around for quite a long time making, porting and testing apps. So they know what they’re doing, which is further evidenced by their choice of game mechanic. Obviously inspired by Advance Wars by Nintendo’s Intelligent Systems studio, they took the Godfather of Handheld Turn-Based Strategy Games (Don Advance Wars anybody? Okay, how about Oyabun Advance Wars?) and geeked it up with eerie facsimiles of Halo and Starcraft units. In addition, the game offers 50+ maps, seamless online head-to-head games with up to 7 other friends, a global ladder board, a campaign mode with 21 missions, chat and even email notifications when it’s your turn, not to mention the pretty solid AI when playing in Single Player mode. For the price, it’s a virtual steal. Jump on the bandwagon so you can brag that you found the game before it was on the Top 50… for the nth time! Price: $4.99.
