So a few days ago, I happened on a game in Google Play that I hadn't seen before: Auralux, which is a kind of real time strategy game. Except that it's unlike any RTS you've ever seen before, being more like an RTS meets a puzzle game. Since I generally love strategy games, I downloaded it. And my own jaded self is pretty damn impressed. You start off in control of one "star," like a sun. It produces a single mote of light--there's no other real way to describe it--per second. These are both your resources, and your units. Like I said, it's not like other RTS games. Your points of light can be used to capture neutral or enemy stars, upgrade your own stars to produce more motes (if possible), or eliminate enemy motes--all of which results in the mote's destruction. Hence, the puzzle-like aspect. The trick is choosing your timing, and your targets. Usually you have two other enemies, so if you can wait until they've just had a major battle, you can advance with less resistance. But depending on what positions you occupy on the map, they may prefer to attack you, instead of each other. It's a surprisingly tricky game. I've managed to beat all the levels in the free version, and I--hater of in-game purchases and upselling--am giving serious thought to paying the $3 to buy a few more map packs. On top of that, there's the sound--a strangely melodic mix of the actual soundtrack, and the fact that the "motes" make musical notes when they attack, resulting in something surprisingly pleasant to the ear. So all around, something that I thought was worthwhile enough to mention to anyone like me who was starving for good strategy-related games. It's available on Android and iOS, but it's probably best used on a tablet.
