Just saw a few previews for X-com and I'm liking it a lot.

Are there any games with a similar feel on iOS? Preferably for iPad.

I'm wondering if there's the perfect game that requires thinking and strategy and is in the theme of some sort of quest. Not too scary. Something where you're on an adventure and have to make decisions about where to go next and what to do next and involves some good thinking skills....Any suggestions?
I Was gonna say Lara croft and TGoL but that's probly too complicated, so maybe Swordigo?

Other ones maybe crimson steam pirates or Nyx Quest..

I want to pick up Sacred Odyssee: Rise of Ayden, but a lot of reviewers on iTunes are complaining that there's some bug with the game where a tree is supposed to fall down and doesn't, or the tree makes an invisible wall, or something like that. It's supposed to completely prevent you from getting further in the game.

Does anyone know if that's really true? And since the The "lite" version (where you can unlock the full game) looks like it's been updated, does it fix this bug?

No, it's not true. Some people just aren't good at figuring stuff out. It's actually kind of a boss fight.
