After a successful rum across PC, consoles and iOS, 2K Games’ popular turn-based tactical RPG XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now available on Android. Priced at $10, the strategic base building game puts players in the role of the commander who leads squads of soldiers through intense combat missions against a terrifying alien invasion.

Not just a token run and gun game, in XCOM: Enemy Unknown your decisions and resources are of the upmost importance, because once you lose a squad member, they’re gone for good and you’ll need to replace them with an inexperienced rookie soldier who requires training. As for the game’s mechanics, players will need to utilize a well-balanced mixture of mobility, cover and specialized weapons.

Originally released in 2012, if you somehow missed it in its heyday, or you’re looking to revisit this critically acclaimed hit on your shiny new HTC One M8 (or whatever Android device you have), head on over to the Play Store to get this party started. Just make sure you device has at least 3.6GB of available storage space.
