Don't like Eisenhorn? Try these 6 amazing Warhammer games on iOS and Android
STOP: Warhammer time
Long awaited Warhammer action title Eisenhorn: Xenos is out now - but what if you don't like it? What if you're getting connection issues? What if you're allergic? What then?!
Calm down. We've got all the answers you need. Take a look at these six great Warhammer games already out on mobile.Warhammer Quest
Warhammer Quest isn't the deepest of games. It's not that tactical, the story isn't great, and it's not the most action-packed game in the world.
But the randomly generated dungeons and perfectly paced strategy battles mean it is, somehow, a huge amount of fun.
As throwback to a bygone era, Warhammer Quest does the original boardgame justice.Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf
Quite apart from having the coolest name of any game in the world ever, Space Wolf (God it sounds cool) is excellent.
You take control of Space Marines (there goes the cool-o-meter again), and battle enemies in card face-offs.
These battles are tough, and can last up to an hour, so this ain't for the faint hearted. But the difficulty doesn't take away from what is a pretty awesome little strategy game.
SPACE WOLF.Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch - Tyrannid Invasion
Luckily, the good news doesn't stop there. It's actually a pretty great turn based battler, and arguably the best game yet.
What are you waiting for? Oh, you want me to say it again.
SPACE WOLF!Warhammer: Arcane Magic
Our first non-40K entry in a while, Arcane Magic distills and digests the tabletop game into bite-size little chunks.
You control wizards, kill creatures, and capture nodes (whatever they are).
It looks beautiful, and the depth of those tiny battles is, conversely, huge.
Okay, last time… SPACE WOLF.Warhammer 40,000: Regicide
The most recent title on this list, and possibly the most interesting, Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is like a game of chess, but on space steroids. Space chess, if you will.
First, you position your troops correctly - hiding them from harm and placing them in prime spots to attack - and then spend action points on shooting or throwing grenades, and using mysterious special skills.
And as you'd expect, given this article, it's a Good Game!
… I don't have to say it this time, because we've got space steroids and giant space warriors instead. Ha!Warhammer 40,000: Glory in Death
An oldie but a goodie, Glory in Death transplanted the 40K universe into the virtual world with aplomb.
STOP THE PRESSES!
I only just noticed Glory in Death is over 10 years old, and was in fact an N-Gage exclusive! Imagine that!
Ah well, pack up everyone. Let's go home.SPACE WOLF!
