There's a twist, however, when it comes to the story. To ensure that Halo: Spartan Assault doesn't railroad into the middle of Halo lore, Industries says that Spartan Assault is actually a simulation, running on board Infinity for Spartans to train.
A convenient caveat, but also an effective mechanism. This arrangement means that Spartan Assault can give you missions that have Halo context, but can survive in isolation. The central character of Spartan Assault at launch is Sarah Palmer and much of what you play relates to her character's story. The story is brought to life with cinematics, which from the example we were shown look and sound fantastic on a mobile device, so you're not just pitched into an abstract mission, you're told why this mission is of significance.
Before you start a level, you have a brief synopsis page as well as a tactical map, so it's pretty easy to determine what you have to do. Story, context and narrative techniques aside, many will be more interested in getting into the action. Many mobile games are thwarted by the same control issues. As such, Industries' Dan Ayoub told us that they'd thrown out "about a dozen" control mechanisms before settling on the dual thumb controls.
Rather than losing control, the controls simply moves with you. In practice this seems to work and from the 30 minutes or so of playtime that we had, we found slippage wasn't a problem. Occasionally we'd find we'd slipped to the edge of the device we were playing on, but generally speaking, the controls work. Those two "thumb" controls give you directional movement for your character or vehicle on the left, while the right stick handles the direction of fire.
This is a top-down shooter, so the controls work well: as the enemy moves around you, you can move your character in any direction the environment allows, as well as fire in any direction. Available on Waitlist. We're sorry.

Jilan al-Cygni drew her pistol and shot him twice in the chest with Tactical Training rounds TTR , rendering him unconscious. Little is known about the Pocket Pistol other than the fact that it is a small black handgun scarcely larger than Jilan's palm and described as being similar in appearance to an M6C Magnum but slightly smaller.

A likely possibility is that it is a sub-compact model of the M6C, given that it is a military-issue handgun and that different sections of the same service will use variants of a given firearm.
