Halo: Spartan Assault launched alongside Halo: Spartan Strike late last week. According to Touch Arcade’s review, Spartan Assault is a pretty decent twin-stick shooting game.
It’s obvious that fans of the series should check out Halo: Spartan Assault right away, but I think it’s one of the better dual-stick shooters to launch recently on the App Store even if you’re not a Halo fan.

Two Halo games hit the App Store late last week: Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike. What’s the difference between the two? Eric Ford explains in Touch Arcade’s review of Spartan Strike. Which, incidentally, is supposedly the better of the two top-down shooters, though Touch Arcade ranks both of them highly.
If you want to pick up both games, you can grab them in a $9.99 bundle. That’s a $1 savings! Buy yourself a Spartan-strength coffee.
It’s no question that if I had to choose between Halo: Spartan Assault or Halo: Spartan Strike that I’d pick the latter. It’s brand new, has a host of iterative improvements to the gameplay formula and looks and sounds excellent.

We can say this for King: The studio keeps itself busy. The makers of Candy Crush Saga recently soft-launched a word-building game called Alpha Betty on the Spanish Google Play store. You can also give it a try (worldwide) on Facebook.
After playing the first few levels of Alpha Betty Saga on Facebook, it’s not hard to see what King are going for here. Alpha Betty Saga is a merging of two worlds: the falling-block, power-up heavy world of Candy Crush Saga and the spelltastic world of games like Scrabble, Boggle and Bookworm Adventures. And from what little we’ve seen, it’s a combination that works really well.
Cowab–you know how the rest goes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is on sale for $1.99 USD. That’s down one dollar from its usual price of $2.99 USD. Who doesn’t love being a turtle?
