Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion is a popular entry in the Warhammer franchise, hailed for its beautiful graphics and strong gameplay. In it, players must make their way through 40 missions while building up an extensive roster of weapons, gear and band of marine soldiers.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

In this installment of Games Workshop’s vast Warhammer universe, you command a squad of space marines in intense turn-based battles. In the midst of all the deliberate tactics and careful maneuvers, tension frequently spikes as overwhelming enemy forces attack, giving the gameplay an almost tower-defense feel. Across the 40 missions, Warhammer fans will delight in collecting an extensive roster of weapons, gear, and marines to deploy in action.
