Default Games like Hunters 2 or XCom Enemy Unknown?

So I'm loving Hunters 2 and I'm definitely going to get the upcoming XCom port.
Are there any other games like these for iPhone? Only other I can think of is Tactial Soldier Undead Rising.

So would need:
- sci-fi setting or a setting with guns (not fantasy)
- turn based tactical strategy
- mechanics like covering areas (think guard/overwatch), upgrading units with specialized skills, various weapons and armor
- either top down or isometric view
- line of sight/fog of war
- able to select individual units (so not Tiny Troopers)
- single player focus

Thanks

PS: I know about about Aliens vs Humans but was looking for games more similar to Hunters or Unknown. In terms of modern graphics and better animations, etc.

There's not alot of cutting edge graphic powerhouse turn based strategy but if you enjoy sci fi turn based strategy it'd be a shame to not consider these.

Mecho War
Military Madness: Neo Nectaris
Lost Star Tactics
Uniwar
Star Trader RPG

Not to forget Cthulu: Wasted Land (actually I forget the exact neame; i'm going by the app icon...just search for wasted land). Mother of All Battles... You know, aside from being turn-based and tactical in nature, x-com and Hunters don't have much in common. Are you looking for a developed meta-game, like X-Com (at least the originals, the demo for the new one fried my power supply)? Or is it the tactical element?

Oh, just read your specifications. It isn't new, but I think I might know the perfect game for you...I just can't remember the name. BRB, got to search the appstore.Too bad searching the appstore seems to have gotten worse since the redesign.

There are a few games of this type in development right now, the only one I can remember off the top of my head is Space Hulk.
