The definitive version hits the iPad

StarHammer Tactics was previously released as a PSN Mini. However, Black Lab Games has touched up their game and are releasing the final version on the iPad this November.

The game features a long and fleshed out campaign for single player, but iPad gamers will appreciate the updated graphics and touchscreen controls.

The game is free-to-play, but this is not my favorite F2P version. A quarter of the game is available for players for free, and the rest can be purchased in game.

While this will give players a competitive edge in multiplayer matches, I believe this form of micro transactions discourages play more than anything. Black Labs would have been better to make the game completely free to play and up the difficulty to encourage giving gamers the extra edge.

FINAL WORD: Interesting
