Everything you need to know about South Park: Phone Destroyer for iPhone and iPad

By , on November 9, 2017

Well, Thursday has rolled around, and the big release this week is South Park: Phone Destroyer. It's not your typical free to play tie-in game though, it's actually a pretty impressive card scrapper with some nice ideas.

Which made me think that I should probably do something telling you everything you need to know about the game. After all, that's definitely the sort of thing that someone might Google, getting me them sweet, sweet SEO hits and what not.

You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you've got any questions you want answered, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we'll do our best to answer it with our brain powers.

What is it?

The game takes a lot of ideas from Clash Royale, but then adds its own South Park twist. You're dropping cards onto a playing field in order to beat back a bunch of enemies. There's an energy system, and every card you play costs a set amount of energy.

Of course, the energy replenishes over time. And the cards you can play are on a rotation system. You can build your deck with new cards as you get deeper into the game, and there are a number of upgrade systems that let you strengthen the characters that you've collected.

Is it funny?

Do you like South Park? If the answer is yes then you're going to adore it. If not, well you're probably going to find the whole thing a little bit juvenile. There are still some laughs to be had though, and the game plays around with the concept of mobile gaming.

For example you'll get calls from some of the different stars of the show. This flips the action round, and there are a few giggles to be had. The whole experience is clearly designed with its tongue firmly in its cheek, and its mind firmly in the gutter.

What's the free to play like?

It's markedly similar to the likes of Clash Royale. You can buy packs of cards, but you don't have to if you're happy to grind your way through. Obviously people who do pay are going to be better placed in multiplayer matches than those who haven't splurged.

So there's multiplayer?

Yup, and it's a key component of the game. There are some sections of the single player that you can't unlock until you've played some multiplayer. The multiplayer is essentially the same as the single player, but the bad guys you're facing off against are controlled by a human opponent instead.

Is it worth a go?

Yeah I reckon so. There's some neat ideas here, and the game is really well put together. If you're a fan of the series then you're really going to get on with this one. And even if you're not, there's an entertaining multiplayer and single player experience here that it's worth your while putting some time into.
