Turn-based tactical games seem to work really well on iPad, and Outwitters has joined this space with a cast of characters that makes me think of SpongeBob SquarePants. Outwitters is a free download made by the two-man team who created Tilt to Live. On the surface, Outwitters is extremely similar to Hero Academy in many, many ways. Both games involving deploying melee and ranged attack units on a tile gameboard, in order to destroy the enemy base. In both games you have 5 moves per turn, and standing on certain tiles gives special abilities. In fact, the two games are so similar I could imagine a mash-up game where your Outwitters and Hero Academy teams play each other. (Actually, that might really be fun...) However, one big difference is the lack of an "undo" button, which makes planning ahead much more critical in Outwitters. Since it takes relatively few hits to destroy the base, games can be shorter and more fast-paced than in Hero Academy as well. All in all, I'd definitely recommend playing Outwitters - it's a free download, but $2.99 will get you all current and future team packs.
