If you like your shooters with more thinking and less, well, shooting, Breach & Clear should be right up your theater of operations. It's a top-down, turn-based tactical game, sort of like XCOM with a coating of Modern Warfare.
Originality on any platform is to be applauded, but since it's in such short supply on mobile, we'll stand up and cheer for Hexage's Reaper. This game combines a tongue-in-cheek grim fantasy story with an RPG leveling/inventory system.
