Micosoft brings Halo spinoffs for iOS, and its own platform, as it has just released Halo: Spartan Strike for Windows 8.1, Windows Phone and for the first time ever, a Halo line has been brought to Apple’ iOS mobile platform, exclusively. More details on how you can download Halo: Spartan Strike for iPhone, ipad and Windows can be checked right after this jump.
The Halo title was originally planned to be released on Windows and Lumia devices back in December, but was literally delayed for reasons unexplained, and today we just saw Microsoft making an exception, as iOS received its first ever Halo spinoff title. For an Android and Kindle release, we shouldn’t expect the game making the cut as a producer said at the game’s announcement last October that the company had “no plans” to iterate the title on Android, Xbox 360 or Xobox One.
The successor to the Halo: Spartan Assault, Spartan Strike was also co-developed by 343 Industries and Vangaurd Games. The newer title however is loosely based on the events of Halo 2 and takes place on New Mombasa in 2552, where you play as a Spartan super-solder (as the movie 300). The title carries 30 levels of epic gameplay akin to Halo: Spartan Assualt, and up to an extent both titles are actually pretty similar to one another in terms of graphics, and the regular alien shooting.
Spartan Strike is set in the Halo universe, with players taking on the role of a Spartan to fight against Covenant and Promethean enemies during the events of the Halo 2, and its just optimized in the Strike for touch devices alongside small screens and even regular PCs. Halo: Spartan Strike released for iPhone and iPad, Microsoft has also thrown in the bundle for $9.99 on the App Store. The bundle isn’t limited to just iOS and can grabbed on all four platforms for 9.99 US dollars.
Microsoft has made the move to iPhone and iPad with one of its most successful and popular titles, given that the FPS based Halo games never even made it to the Windows for PC platforms either barring the very first Halo release. For now though, you can immerse yourself in some truly breathtaking graphics on your iPhones and iPads with their Retina displays and on.
You can download Halo: Spartan Strike for iOS from here, Windows here, Steam here, Windows Phone from here. Now make your choice of grabbing Halo: Spartan Assualt for iOS, which can be downloadable from here.
