Just in time for my flight to Seattle, WA, Microsoft has just published the awaited game, Halo: Spartan Assault. This game is made for touch enabled devices; specifically, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
You can download the game right now for Windows 8 devices (I just downloaded the ~850 MB game for my Surface RT) for the low price of $6.99.
For Windows Phone 8 users, Halo: Spartan Assault is exclusive to Verizon customers ONLY for the moment. My understanding is that it will come to ALL Windows Phone 8 phones (that can support the hardware requirements) in about a month.

Halo: Spartan Assault brings the excitement of Halo combat to touch-based devices for the very first time. Battle your way through 25 action-packed missions against the Covenant as you explore the origin of the Spartan Ops program and Halo 4’s Spartan Commander, Sarah Palmer.
Earn Xbox achievements, complete mission and weekly challenges, unlock new customizations for your Halo 4 career, and compete against your friends for the top scores in the leaderboards.
It’s time to join the assault, Spartan!
