  • I already have this game. It's awesome.
  • Nice they are doing this for people who may never have played a halo title
  • I've bought it but the keyboard doesn´t work... Don't know why.. :(
  • I have the same problem, search on internet there is no fix for that!! Laptop keyboard is not recognized...
  • Did they not make Spartan Strike a Universal app? And did it never get to Xbox One?
  • Spartan Strike is a universal app. It's not on Xbox One and hasn't yet been announced for it either.
  • For universal apps to work on XB1, doesn't it need to be udpated to W10 on XB1? I don't think the console has received the OS update yet.
  • Probably, but my Xbox One question was abotu a general release. Assault is on One, Strike is not.
  • Ahh, I misunderstood your post. I'm looking forward to universal apps being playable on XB1.
  • Why did they gave discount?we need it free for that worst game
  • They're on discount as a Red Stripe Deal of the Weak--which is nothing new. Neither is the "worst" game. They're both some of the best mobile twin-stick shooters out there, actually.
  • Indeed coip. Karunakar clearly knows nothing about these games if they thinks they are "that worst". I wonder if he has even played them. I think it's fairly common opinion that these are a pair of very good games, as evidenced by their 80% and 86% ratings presently in the store.
  • sadly we've seen far fewer xbl enabled titles go on sale
  • Every week an Xbox-enabled title is on sale as a Red Stripe Deal. Granted, sometimes there are repeats, but at least they are consistently putting Xbox games on sale.
  • Every week? Sometimes Its just a regualr game? Maybe Im delusional
  • "Deal of the Weak" has a whole different meaning haha ;)
  • Is your name really K.Hunt? hahahaah almost as bad as "Mike Hunt" 
  • Between Tomb Raider GO and this, I think it's time to turn in my bing points!
  • Thanks for the tip ! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I just bought the latter days ago! Should've waited a little longer.
  • Excellent deal
  • I own and have played the first one, great game!!! Will definitely get the second one before the deal ends... Thanks for the tip
  • I think they fixed it... Halo: Spartan Assault is $2.49 for PC now.
  • I'm somehow relieved...
  • spartan stick is $3.49 cdn lol the change to exchange rate in ws is killing me
  • If you buy it on phone or PC you get it for both. PC and phone. So why not just say that it's discounts for Windows in general?
  • Should I buy both Spartan Assault and Strike, or just one? Idk if they are very similar in gameplay.
  • They're basically the same. I'd buy Strike if you're only going to buy one, as it's newer. If you're really into playing games, I'd buy both. You can probably run through the levels of either one in a couple days with a little effort.  
  • I have bought the strike :)
  • I have just bought and installed them on my laptop. :) Later I will install them on my phone. How about game progress? Does it have sync?
  • I checked for you. It gave me an excuse to power on my old Lumia. Yes, both games seem to sync progress across devices. WP8 and W10 anyway.
