Does any one know if the iCloud support means I can play my save game from my Mac version and the other way round?

Not sure if it supports the mac version. The iPhone and iPad yes.

It crashes quite a bit on my iPad Mini though

While I am sorry you have to suffer that. I am also glad you brought it before I did. I will wait for the Ipad 5 to download it.

Although I might buy it now, just to encourage more games like this.

Something must be wrong with that iPad. After I restarted my iPad mini, I was able to play for hours with no crash

Yup. I'm pretty sure XCOM eats a lot of ram. It'd probably be a good idea to close all your background apps before playing it.

Great great game, got it for $10 an PC, loved it. From guys that made Civilization. Turn based strategy game, very difficult but lots of fun. I played it on easiest mode and I still found it hard! Glad to see this on iOS as it should work pretty well with the touch. Plus turn based gameplay makes it easy to play a few turns and then quit and continue later.

when i saw the price, i was like....wow, that's expensive for an app, but then i downloaded it, played the game for hours and i have to say the this game is worth $20. awesome graphics, great story, amazing details, etc.
i'd definitely recommend this app to everyone who's looking for a great action game.

We need to support this level of quality, and the only way to do that is to pay them what they are worth, and its not 99cents, $20 is, i feel, a fair asking price for a game that was $60+ on all other formats with the depth and longevity that this has.
This, we'll worth it. Just got it yesterday

+1! It's really nice even on the iPad Mini. I have just played 3-4 missions so far and closed everything else before starting the game, but it runs really smoothly.

The only downside is that the loading times are rather long, so it's not possible to do a quick mission on the bus or something like that ;-)

Also got the Last of Us for PS3 last week and I have to say, that XCOM has more 'hours played' even though I played through the console version last winter. Addicted!
