* EasyLogistics - You can buy new units whenever you have the money, and they simply get airdropped onto the battlefield. Which causes some FridgeLogic, because why couldn't they drop you at your destination to begin with?

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - The four Combat Suit abilities: "Repair" repairs all of your units in a given area, "Decoy" draws the attention of the enemy towers away from your units, "Smoke Screen" creates a field that makes it harder for enemy towers to target anything inside it, and "Airstrike", which . . .

* FriendlyFireProof - Airstrikes won't damage your units if they happen to be passing by when the bombs fall.
* GlassCannon - The Crawler. Does the most damage of any vehicle in the game, but has the worst armor.
* GlobalCurrency - You pay for your units (and upgrades to same) with dollars, despite the fact that you're working in Baghdad and Tokyo. And that you seem to be a British platoon.

Added DiffLines:

* ReformulatedGame: The mobile version has several differencies with the computer one. Baghdad is the only scenario and the plot is even simpler. Some missions are similar to the original ones but others are very different, with situations originally seen in Tokyo like the EscortMission with the transport craft and the introduction of the Dragon unit (which is fully functional from the get-go). There is no commander, abilities are deployed and collected by tapping on the screen; Hacker and Harevester turrets are present but work a bit differently to accomodate the change.
