New iOS Apps, Games and JB Tweaks of the Week: XCOM: Enemy Within, Duck Commander and More

This is kind of shocking for a popular television show that's been surrounded in so much controversy lately. If you like religious bigots and tower defense games then you may want to check it out. Duck Commander: Duck Defense is now available on the App Store for for $1.99.

Enemy Within was originally an expansion to XCOM: Enemy Unknown but now it has been released as a standalone app for iOS devices. Within features the same turn-based strategy game mechanics as the original but comes with all new content like new soldier abilities, new weapons and so on. Basically, if you loved the original and are willing to spend more than $10 on a mobile app then you've probably already downloaded the game.
