Sid Meier did more than put his name on SID MEIER'S ACE PATROL; he programmed it himself -- and his legendary attention to detail shines through, making this perhaps one of the best strategy game on any mobile device. Players must manage resources, train pilots, and make careful decisions as they battle enemy pilots.

The battles, though turn-based, are still thrilling, and the decision to add a replay mode (letting you watch them in real time after the campaign) was a wise one. The game's multiplayer mode is well done, but turn-based games tend to move a bit slow in multiplayer modes. (Kudos are due, though, on the ensuring of multiplayer matches against strangers being relatively safe. There's no discussion, only gameplay.) Overall there's very little for strategy fans to complain about here, and people new to the genre will quickly see why it's so addictive.
