Games for the Weekend is a weekly feature aimed at helping you avoid doing something constructive with your downtime. Each Friday we’ll be recommending a game for Mac, iPhone or iPad that we think is awesome. Here is one cool enough to keep you busy until Monday, at least.
Tentacle Wars ($0.99 iPad, $0.99 iPhone) is a real-time strategy game where your fingers are the only weapon to fight off a deadly alien disease. With an original game soundtrack and graphics optimized for an iPhone or iPad’s Retina display(s AAPL), you will become immersed in biological warfare at the cellular level.
