Take the fight to the can

Commander, it's once again time to save the Earth - but this time you can do it from the comfort of your toilet seat. XCOM 2 today launched on iPhones, iPads, I don't know anymore. The iOS release comes with all the DLC too, enough game to occupy your attention for potentially thousands of bowel movements.

The XCOM 2 Collection for pocket telephones comes with those as well as the lesser DLCs: Alien Hunters, Shen's Last Gift, Anarchy's Children, and Resistance Warrior Pack.

It's XCOM, on iThings, yeah? The port is by Feral Interactive. Yup, new wee touchscreens mean new menus and that.
