Certainly, The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault is not the first iOS game based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 franchise, nor is it the first to clone the combat strategy gameplay popularized by Supercell’s Clash of Clans. But at least it has a couple of firsts going for it.
Drop Assault is the first Clash of Clans-like iOS game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. And it’s also the first Warhammer 40,000 iOS game to feature the popular Horus Heresy as its setting.
In Drop Assault, you have to choose a side in the titular civil war that broke among the Emperor’s Space Marine Legions in the 30th millennium: with the Emperor as a loyalist or with Horus as a traitor.
And in true Clash of Clans fashion, you have to build bases, assemble armies, and destroy rival strongholds in Drop Assault.
You can also create clans, I mean, chapters with your friends and challenges other players from around the world in the game’s live multiplayer skirmish combat mode.

If you’re a fan of both Warhammer 40,000 and Clash of Clans, make sure to check it out.
Drop Assault is developed by Complex Games and published by Crooz under license from Games Workshop.
