Strike Fast. Be a Spartan! Halo: Spartan Strike lands on iOS and Windows Phone


Do you remember Halo: Spartan Assault? Of course you do! Just like any other game set in the vast Halo universe, it quickly found itself surrounded by hordes of flocking gamers. Well, the successor to the mobile game is already here! Halo: Spartan Strike is now available on a plethora of platforms, but the ones that interest us are the mobile ones -  iOS and Windows Phone 8.

Much like Halo: Spartan Assault, the new entrant will put you inside an ONI simulation set during the Halo 2 period, on New Mombasa in 2552 in particular. You, of course, step into the shoes of a Spartan soldier who has to deal with the enemies over 30 levels. Just as you might imagine, the game is fully optimized for mobile devices; the game also arrives with updated graphics and tons of new content, like new weapons, vehicles to drive and shoot the baddies with, as well as a host of new abilities.

The game is currently priced at $5.99 on both the App Store and the Windows Phone Store. What's your excuse for not playing it already?

I really don't wanna play this on my Surface Pro! Wish I could play on my Note 4.

One of the only mobile games worth playing. Pay the $6, get the game and play it without any IAPs. Plus, it is a universal app on windows.

meh, totally different genre's. Hope you post this in all the other 'games' section of android and ios. Cause after all, you can only like Halo if your a WP fan boy. Dear Lord let it be because it is a good game in general.

Microsoft has been milking the Halo title for ages. I was a fan of Halo but quit it since Halo 3. I do enjoy Halo 1 and 2, to me Halo 3 is a complete ripoff. They should have put in more effort, I can finish the game in 2 hours, what kind of developer make a 2 hours game. Watching The Hobbit or LOTR gives more value for money. No more Halo game for me.

I was a fan of Halo: CE But then MS bought Bungie Halo 2 was a terrible port and Vista exclusive Then MS stop releasing PC Halo games all together I don't like these mobile Halo games I might try if MS bring Halo MCC or V to PC But CS:GO is still by far my fav FPS

The only fan boy here is you. If you are a gamer, you would appreciate a good game. NEWSFLASH, there can be more than one good game. Between this, MKX, and goat simulator (which is just wacky), I am going to have a good time this weekend. Stop being so bitter and just play your games.

I accept that you like Halo, can you accept that i don't?

Then why even come here, accept that he likes a game YOU don't, and then turn around and call him a fanboy...yea real 'accepting' you are doing. For him it is the only game he thinks is worth playing on a mobile device, that is his opinion. And when you make fun of it, expect people to simply not give a rats behind what you care about and simply accept that you love trolling. now if you came in offered, a response along the lines of. "Not a fan of the Halo series, here are games i like better..." and provide a list that is on Windows, since technically it is a windows game that is just now available on iOS, but has been on windows since its launch, and do it without getting all peepee hurt and calling him a fanboy...then you might be on to something. End rant, sorry a string of s6 problems today at work has me ticked.

Then why did you call me a fan boy. I never went after you for playing whatever you want to. This is literally one of the only games I play on mobile. Can't you accept that?

I disagree which your posting that why I state it here. Simple as that. Is there a rule that only allow people to put only boot-licking comments here. Boy, how i hate Halo and Microsoft endless need to exploit it. Halo this Halo that. Is there another title from Microsoft stable worth mentioning.

You still didn't tell me why you had to call me a fan boy, because it was completely uncalled for. People like different games. Get over it.

Did you ever call out on any Microsoft bulls**t since you joined PA? None. So i make it my priorities to point each and every one out to you.

It's a good game, sorry you didn't like it. You seem to have issues. This really has nothing to do with MS or anything. It is not even a real halo game, just a small, fun spinoff. Have you even played the original?

Read my last posting, i played and enjoyed Halo 1 and Halo 2. Despite my strong dislike for Microsoft business policy, i bought their Xbox and Xbox 360 to play Halo. Therefore, Halo was once important to me, then they screw up with Halo 3. Granted other gaming company are shortening their game from 20 to about 10 hours of gameplay. But Halo 3 is a new record 2 hours. I am PISSED at the end of the game.

Any reason it's not on Android? I'm using Windows personally but I really hate gaming exclusives.

because it was probably built on directx, ios usually has people that pay for apps. They also might be avoided any potential hacks that may occur if available on android, though most likely due to the lower volume of sales of games. Or they are simply working on a port and decided on a ios release first. Or they could simply be giving a finger to android, but i doubt that, they have more than 50 apps on android.

How would you know? Any valid sources? Links?

It was all speculation. iOS has the highest revenue vs playstore for apps. So their chances of getting paid are higher. Just like the excuse of cost to dev for windows is not worth it. They could be thinking the same thing. I do think later it will hit android. But at the same time it is not uncommon for devs to loose money cause the apk file gets online. I dont need sources for that, google is its own search source for free games that you would other wise have to pay for. Though i dont think MS cares about this portion of my thoughts. I dont see why they wouldnt release it on android, all i can think of is a time table that didnt allow 3 mobile OS releases.

I know there plenty of people that would pirate rather than pay. For me, i would gladly pay if i really want the software. Having clear honest principle is important to me that why I don't like Microsoft.
