Seriously, if you’re a big Warhammer fan, you need to count your lucky stars that Games Workshop is willing to spread their licenses out far and wide. Fan of the NFL? Hope you like the Madden games! Fan of Warhammer? Well, you get many, many games, all across many genres to play. The latest is the now-worldwide The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault (Free), published by Crooz and developed by Complex Games. This is basically a Clash of Clans (Free) take on the Warhammer universe, which feels kind of surprising that no one had done that already.
The game takes place during the eponymous Horus Heresy, which served as a civil war that set up the universe of Warhammer 40,000. In Drop Assault, you choose to play as either a Loyalist or Traitor, joining a legion, and getting to work at building your bases, attackers, and defenses. The game’s multiplayer boasts a Live Skirmish mode where you can take on another player in real-time online against another player, fighting to control points on a map in order to defeat the other player’s troops and win valuable prizes. While Clash of Clan clones are a dime a dozen on the App Store, at least the live multiplayer is an interesting addition, and hey, the theme makes for a great game about persistent war, eh?
