Mobile games: Tweakers which this summer plays
What do you do when it’s summer, there are hardly any new games to play, and actually too hot to hang? For your television on your couch Then you grab your iPad, Surface or other mobile device and go see if there are fun mobile games, because in that category appear weekly significant titles. That is exactly what the Tweakers-editors have done in recent weeks. In this article we highlight some of those notable games in a row. Does it mean that this is the absolute best games? Of course not. Think of it as a suggestion, a small glimpse into the catalog of games that are downloadable. And let’s kick off with but a product of Dutch soil.
Game Editors Jurian Ubachs and Paul Hulsebosch discuss the games from this article.
Halo: Spartan Assault
It is especially tough that a Dutch studio a real Halo game made. Vanguard Games in Amsterdam has just Halo: Spartan Assault delivered, which appears as an app for Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8. That is also the largest drawback of the game, he is not available for many devices. He also runs on Windows 8, but the game is really made for touch devices and the market share of RT and Windows Phone 8 is not that big. The game is on Windows 8 does also play with a mouse and keyboard, but not with a controller, although we are working on a patch that makes that possible. Obviously Microsoft wants to use Spartan Assault to increase the market for touch devices but it’s a shame that the game now has such a small audience.

Yet there is a difference in a game like Gatling Gears, because here you have – as befits Halo – much less ammunition. In most ‘twin stick’ shooters can ventilate an almost infinite number of bullets. That does not belong in Halo and so you should be careful in Spartan Assault. Or switch to weapons of the Covenant, which you can pick up on the battlefield. On
Spartan Assault is a real Halo game and that’s good. There is a lot that feels very familiar. You can switch between two arms, two types of grenades you can carry with you and you can even sell a beech opponents, because that is part of Halo. The typical Halo trinity ‘blank firing gun, grenade throwing and beech sell’ is neatly taken. You just can not jump, though you will not really miss the top-down view. Furthermore, there are turrets that you can take over and all of Halo known vehicles where you can step out., And again
Halo: Spartan Assault.
Moreover, there is a nice upgrade path in the game. You get xp in the missions that you perform a mission and you can win bronze, silver or gold. You can advance even decide that you want to make to earn. Extra xp mission more difficult There also is the largest snake in the grass, as most upgrades you should buy. With xp you can use the simpler upgrades such as better weapons, earn, but for the stuff you really need to have something to docks. That’s not much, for two euros fifty buy 500 credits, and a good weapon buy for less than 100 credits, but still.
So we are not quite positive about Halo: Spartan Assault. It’s a real Halo game in which you are dependent on the classic triangle ‘guns, grenades and melee. The game also looks good and very recognizable from above. It is a pity that he did not appear for iOS and Android and all pity is that most upgrades must be purchased while you have already paid. 6 euros for the game Finally, the story in Spartan Assault plays somewhere in the gap between Halo 3 and 4, a period in which the fate of Master Chief is unknown. Master Chief is therefore not in the game and that is unfortunate. Too bad even. The atmosphere and gameplay are called ‘very Halo’, but without Master Chief, the story never really alive. It remains a collection of 25 individual levels. Those look fine, to play, exciting and fine yet.
