Halo lands on the iPhone and iPad with Spartan Strike and Spartan Assault

We wondered back in 2013 if Halo: Spartan Assault would ever come to iOS, and that answer is now a definitive "yes". In addition to Assault, Spartan Strike has landed at the same time. Both games are top-down shooters in which you take the role of a Spartan soldier fighting the forces of the Covenant.

Each game features 30 missions taking place across a wide variety of environments. In addition to engaging in combat on foot, you'll have access to a number of vehicles like the Warthog and the M808B battle tank to take on enemy forces. Spartan Assault takes place just before the events of Halo 4, while Spartan Strike takes place in a simulation of some of the key events of Halo 2.

The games are available on the App Store separately for $5.99 each, or as a $9.99 bundle. Even if you only download one game at first, you can complete the bundle later without needing to pay full price for the other title.

  • Definitely getting the bundle. These games are a blast.
  • And this is why I left windows phone. Sent from the iMore App
  • What do you mean? Spartan Assault has been on Windows Phone for a while now, and Spartan Strike is available as well.
  • Well, Spartan strike wasn't available when I posted. Let me know when they get my banking apps and perhaps just 80% of the other apps I use. Would gladly switch back. Sent from the iMore App
  • This is why I left windows phone also. Microsofts own native apps have more features on iOS than on Windows phone! If even Microsoft don't support their own platform, why should I. Sent from the iMore App
  • Cool! I wonder I can find my old disc with Halo: Combat Evolved for Mac.
  • Nice. Going to get these tonight when I get home.
  • This is awsome!! I just got them and love it! It's the only thing Microsoft does right! Sent from the iMore App
  • Great news! Finally a shooter on ios I want to play
