I knew that there was some solid game making experience among the staff of the newly formed company The Game Bakers, but I didn't know what to expect with their latest game, Squids. The team is made up of former Ubisoft staff, and former shipped titles include Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, and Rayman Raving Rabbids. But there's nothing in the way of Tom Clancy seriousness in this game. Instead you'll find cute little squids, happy little fishes and pastel colors.
Wait! Come back!
To my surprise, Squids is a beautiful iOS title that mixes pull-back-and-shoot action with tactical strategy. Yes, this is technically a SRPG. I wouldn't go as far as saying that it's Angry Birds meets Shining Force, but there's elements of both to be found here, and it all works really well together.
