UFHO2 Gameplay Review

I'm playing UFHO2, a turn-based strategic board game by Tiny Colossus.

The game includes a story mode which offers slightly over twenty matches against the AI. You can also play the game locally against others or the AI; online cross-platform multiplayer is planned for the near future. Each game takes place on a map of hexagonal areas filled with hexagonal rooms. The goal is to collect gems from around the map; each turn, you can complete six moves consisting of rotating areas, rotating rooms, or moving your alien. Various power-ups are available to prevent room rotation, grant additional moves, or grant other abilities. The AI is quite adept at the game, providing a very good challenge. UFHO2 is a straightforward computerized board game with interesting mechanics and capable AI.
