I thought about pointing my brother toward that -- he ought to remember me playing the original UFO: Enemy Unknown back in our college dorm room (somehow I got the British version, hearkening back to the 60s TV show in its title as a nod to its game design, not the American X-Com label).

However, I've read that the game is randomly unstable (depending on the make and model of droid, even recent models), which seems a big risk to take on a relatively high-dollar game.

I am leery of that, too.  I purchased Terraria.  It worked fine for months then this big update comes up and suddenly a game I paid for is unplayable (it force closes immediately) and their patches since have not solved the problem.  Definitely an instance where the fractured android market is a big problem, making premium purchases on my part even less likely and with distrustful customers not making purchases developers are less willing to port good games to Android.  A vicious cycle.

Enemy Unknown would not run on my table.   Enemy Within runs fine.  I don't know why.....

you need to upgrade!  just add a "t" to the end, and voila! problem solved :)
