XCOM And Civilization Creators Are Bringing Something Spooky To iOS

The folks at Firaxis are responsible for some of the best strategy games ever made. So when they promise a deep, competitive, free-to-play strategy game for iOS in the upcoming Haunted Hollow, it's a good time to be an iDevice owner.

In Haunted Hollow, players construct elaborate mansions that spawn all sorts of nasty horror standards — vampires, witches, werewolves and such. Once established, they'll compete against rivals as they take over townhomes, terrorise the populace, fight enemies and generally take over the town, as large bands of monsters have been doing since the invention of the spooky mansion (the spooky condo was just not getting the job done).

Evil overlords will be able to play singleplayer games by their lonesome, or take down other devilish landlords via pass-and-play or Game Center multiplayer.

Haunted Hollow will be out on iOS in coming weeks. I will be playing it. I'll let you know how that goes.


    Anyone else get an instant hit of disappointment everytime they read "Free to Play"?

      I got a hit of the tingles when I saw XCOM in the title. Seeing XCOM anything as the title of an article gives me the tingles. I am invariably disappointed. This was no exception.

      Even though the game does actually look pretty cool.

      Yep, I lost interest right about there. Pity, really - I love XCOM.
