A year after the base game was released, Borealis introduces a brand new planet to Iron Marines for you to explore. Borealis features 10 new missions, along with some pretty slick-looking Heroes. You’ll be able to send Blue Dragon (a starfighter pilot), Roy (an alien gunslinger), and Sparas (a pathfinder) into battle.

If you haven’t played it already, Iron Marines is a fantastic mobile RTS adventure. We liked it enough to give it a prestigious Gold Award. Hand drawn, otherworldly artwork; intense RTS and tower defense strategy; and mechanics perfectly honed for the mobile platform, Iron Marines is a must if you enjoy tactical space adventures.

You can find Iron Marines on iTunes.
