17-Bit's Jake Kazdal told Pocket Gamer the iOS games is based on the Steam version the studio released in the summer. That means the tweaks and additions to that port are in the iOS version, including the extra episode and Tanuki monk unit.
As for multiplayer, the iOS port supports real-time "pass-and-play" on one device, as well as asynchronous turn-based battles online. Like other versions the multiplayer is cross-platform compatible, albeit only with Steam.
We were big fans of 17-Bit's take on a samurai's afterlife, awarding Skulls of the Shogun the full five stars in our review. As Jess put it, "Skulls of the Shogun is joyful, cheeky, and like most memorable experiences, it's best with friends."
