Zen Studios is a name you're used to seeing attached to pinball games, and great ones at that, so when I saw that they were doing a mobile tie-in for the upcoming movie Independence Day: Resurgence I was quite surprised.

Turns out it's a light strategy game heavily inspired by games like Marvel Alliance 2. It tasks you with creating the best team of ships and asks you to defend the earth in turn based combat using your ships' skills.
