Christmas Eve – Done. Another level on Halo Wars, but of course this one had to be a time enforced level didn’t it? Cover the civilians as they’re escaping the war ravaged city for at least 15 minutes. Which is fine – I’d expect to be playing that long anyway, but what I didn’t expect is to have all my Evac transports wiped out with two minutes to spare, and needing to restart the level because I didn’t save the game! Lesson learned.
It should probably go without saying but my second, ‘successful’ attempt wasn’t the overwhelming victory that I would have liked. With a final score around 20k, I’m well within the ‘tin’ level of victory – but, much like my life philosophy that ‘P’s Make Degrees’, a win is a win is a win.
Tomorrow is, of course, Christmas, so I’ll see how I’m feeling for another Halo Wars level or whether I just burn through an iOS achievement. It’s worth noting that I discovered the two iOS Halo games, Spartan Strike and Spartan Assault, have been removed from the App Store, so I’m conscious of not letting an opportunity like this slip past, but at the same time I’d like to keep an ‘instant’ achievement in my back pocket for real emergencies. It’s tough living inside my mind(!)
If this is the last thing you read before Christmas, I wish you and yours a safe and Merry one!
