A company who I have never heard of, Eutechnux, is bringing Warhammer 40,000 to Mobile and PC with the upcoming release of Storm of Vengeance. You can check out the trailer and some screenshots for this lane shooter above and indeed below…
The game is a lane shooter akin to titles like Plants Vs Zombies where Space Marines of the Dark Angles take on Space Orks, upgrading their units and planning the best defence against waves of enemies that continue to pour towards your battle lines.
According to some hands on experience they seem to have made the two factions fairly different and it seems like maybe this is quite the neat time waster game for plugging yourself into on the train. Admittedly the game is nothing like Dawn of War or Space Marine, but then I suppose there is room for all kinds of games based in the Warhammer 40,000 world.
Interestingly the conflicts you fight in multi-player feed into a larger ‘war’ where your chosen faction is vying for dominance. There will be a third faction, the Imperial Guard, up for offer on day one and then more are in the pipeline.
I guess this could be a cheap and cheerful addition to your mobile library.
Personally I’m waiting for Space Wolf!
