GAME OF THE DAY - The Horus Heresy: Legions is a grim deckbuilder with an awesome community

Playing bad mobile games is awful - and we should know, we've almost certainly played way more bad ones than you have. But that's fine, because it's our job. On the flip-side of that though, it's also our job to tell you all about the awesome mobile games you could be playing - and that's where our #gameoftheday initiative comes in.

Every week day we pick a game that we think is brilliant - it might be new, it might be old, but we can pretty much guarantee that it's going to be loads of fun. Today is no different - we've picked deck-building card game The Horus Heresy: Legions for you this Wednesday.

Click here and you can check out all of the other games that have won this prestigious award. There's loads there, and each of them offers a different glimpse of mobile gaming greatness.

The Horus Heresy: Legions

Card games are a big deal on mobile nowadays, and this ranks among the best of them. You build up a deck of hulking Space Marines or corrupted Chaos beasts, and then have massive fights. Think Hearthstone, with a few different tricks up its sleeve, dressed up in the trapping of Games Workshop's grim dark, grimly dark, grim future. That's dark.

There are loads of different challenges to try and complete here, and a big and engaged player-base. In-game events let you choose which cards are added to the experience, and the balance between single and multiplayer is pretty much spot on. Sprinkle a gothic crust over the top and you've got something pretty special.
