Those of us who love old-fashioned role-playing games will have a soft spot for Warhammer, even if it isn’t a title you have played. Known for the custom paint-jobs on tiny figurines and battlements, the franchise made the move to video games some time ago. This move now includes Warhammer 40,000: Carnage, now out for Android (it was available for iOS last month).
Complex story-lines are present, arming you (as one of the powerful space marine characters like the Ultramarine or Blood Angel) with crazy-fun weapons (like the boltgun, chainsword, and thunder hammers). Your mission is to maneuver through this side-scroller action game until you compete the mission to obliterate “nasty little Orks.”
No details were spared adding in the bells and whistles: over 500 classic wargear items are available, 50 levels are available through free expansion packs (and there are 9 different ways to play each one of them). For those who crave the interaction with friends that make RPGs so special, connect and co-op with other players using Google Play or Facebook.
You can download Warhammer 40,000: Carnage from the Google Play store for the bargain price of $6.99 (when you consider the prior investment required for equipment and time to play it on the table-top).
