It's been a while since we've heard from the guys over at Kairosoft Japan. But that's clearly because they've been busy beavering away on Epic Astro Story - the latest in their series of isometric strategy titles.

Continuing the lovely 2d pixel-art aesthetic they've so well-honed over their last few games, Epic Astro Story sees you attempting, Sim City style, to colonize an alien planet. But in addition to managing the minutiae of strategically positioning every single individual element in order to maximise its effectiveness - typical Kairosoft tropes - there's also now an emphasis on battling aliens during Final Fantasy-esque random battles.

As ever it looks wonderful and utterly charming, but has Kairosoft managed to get itself out of that creative rut that has led to the last few of its games playing out all too similarly. Here's hoping.

Epic Astro Story is available now on the iTunes App Store for £2.49.
