Halo: Spartan Assault is the first mobile game in the 12-year history of the Halo franchise and it received an impressive amount of positive reviews since its release on the 18th of July.
Unfortunately for some, the game has been available only to Verizon Wireless customers for the first 30 days after release. Now, any fan of the series who has a Windows Phone 8/Windows RT device with at least 1 GB of RAM should be able to enjoy the game.
Priced at $6.99, Halo: Spartan Assault features excellent graphics, an interesting story and lots of action. The player can enjoy 25 new missions from a top-down perspective. These missions are set in the period between Halo 3 and Halo 4, "offering new insights into the first missions of the Spartan Ops program, the history of the Human-Covenant wars, and the rise of Commander Sarah Palmer".
According to the Windows Phone Blog, "If none of that means anything to you, don’t worry: The game was designed to appeal to both hardcore residents of Halo nation and newbies alike." so any mobile gamer should be able to give Halo: Spartan Assault a try.
