    It's a must-download for anyone who enjoys games that require fast reflexes and quick thinking, or just wants to have a blast while making sure humanity sticks around for a while.

    Strikefleet Omega is free but it's a real "serious" game, a classic RTS with a good upgrade system. In-App purchases are attractive but not necessary.

    Strikefleet Omega invokes some very happy memories of one of PC gaming's greatest triumphs, Homeworld. While this is a far more arcade-like, simplistic and brisk version of that classic RPS, we've given up hope on a third installment of the game ever seeing the light of day, and so this is just what we need to keep us occupied on the way to work in the mornings.

    The visuals are very well done, making it easy to track the action even on small iPhone and iPod screens.

    A fresh and well considered space-bound strategy experience like no other, Strikefleet Omega even manages to escape the IAP asteroid field relatively unscathed.

    The ability to call in your own ships and draw out flight patterns for your ships grants flexibility seldom found in traditional tower defense games. Yet, that constant threat and anticipation of waves is completely intact, creating a good spin on tower defense (ship defense?) that I hope to see more of in the future.

    Strikefleet Omega is a tower defense game brought to us by Harebrained Schemes. Installing it is breezy, which I've come to expect from every app I download for Android. The graphical interface is sharp, high quality and well done. Loading on my Samsung s3 is effortless.

    The object of the game is to command a fleet of starships, which you buy and upgrade as you progress. Hordes of space alien ships come at you in waves. Pick the right ship and destroy them all.

    As a strategy game it's pretty good, but not the best I've ever played. This is due mostly to an imbalance in the power of ships which can be bought for credits (cash) and stuff you earn through gameplay. It's not horribly imbalanced, but it's noticeable. That said, I haven't spent the money this title deserves for being a well-made, beautiful, fun game. I've gotten a dozen hours of exciting gameplay out of it. The ease with which I can skip into a quick battle makes this a true casual game.

    I definitely recommend tower defense lovers download and enjoy this little game. While the balance isn't quite perfect, it's not damaging to the enjoyability of the game for casual giggles. However, if you plan to compete on the boards you'll need to be willing to spend some dollars. Thus far, the game is worth the money.
