Kard Combat ™ Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Kard Combat ™ Review

Editor Note (Nov 9, 2011): One of the major weaknesses of Kard Combat when it was released was its lack of customization - something further exascerbated by only having a handful of mages to play with, limiting the overall amount of unique cards to try out. Instead of adding in deck manipulation, Hothead Games has opted to add more mages (albeit at a cost) while also adding in local hotseat (a boon for friends who don't own iDevices). We still feel the lack of customization makes…

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

Review Playdek By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

On the one hand, the recent influx (if you can call it that) of Collectable Card Games (CCGs) and their related game-types is a boon to fans of card based gaming and those after something to play and pass around with friends. On the other hand (and this is more of a personal note) playing these sorts of games can become a bit of an obsession. Who better than tournament champions from Magic The Gathering to understand my woe and to help design Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer by Pl…

Shadow Era TCG Review

Review Kyle Poole By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Shadow Era TCG Review

Don't be fooled by its outward appearance as a free game - Shadow Era, much like any Trading Card Game (TCG) is designed to suck you in and trap you until you've emptied your pockets, your spare time and maybe even your friends. OK sure, I'm being melodramatic and not everyone is going to become obsessed about a new TCG, but basing the gameplay on something as popular as the World of Warcraft TCG and making it free is sure to snag a few people. Like most TCGs the gameplay revolves aro…

Poker With Bob Review

Review Scary Robot Productions By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Poker With Bob Review

There's an elegance to Poker that isn't always talked about, but with little more than a deck and a way to keep track of your bets you're able to sit down with one or more people and compete in an enjoyable game of wits and calculated chance. Poker With Bob by Scary Robot Productions tries to capture the personal touch of playing with a real opponent and you'll catch yourself smirking, frowning and even trying to pull a poker face in response to Bob's detailed animated expressions. Fo…

Dogs Playing Poker Review

Review Candywriter, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Dogs Playing Poker Review

It's such a simple idea, but Dogs Playing Poker could easily have been a hard one to stomach thanks to C. M. Coolidge's paintings holding a dubious position in pop culture and its assorted ephemera. Thankfully instead of some tacky attempt at cashing in on a pop reference Dogs Playing Poker by Candywriter is probably one of the friendliest and certainly furriest Texas Hold'em games for the iPhone. The tutorial is simply brilliant and gives players a chance to not only learn the game's…

Durak Review

Review Lost Token Software LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Durak Review

Card games are often hard to represent accurately in video games. Sure, the rules are easy enough to replicate, but it's so hard to replace the feel of playing a game with real cards and real people. Durak by Lost Token does a great job of making a virtual card game feel realistic and even gives you the ability to play with real opponents. For those that aren't aware of the game, Durak is a card shedding style of play that uses trick-taking rules to establish who wins or loses a round…

Screw The Dealer Pro Review

Review We Are Colin By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 10 months ago
Screw The Dealer Pro Review

For those looking for something a little different to the traditional card game, Screw the Dealer Pro has now arrived in the appstore. Screw the Dealer Pro is mixture of the classic 'Whist', 'Trumps', 'Spades' and 'Oh Hell' card games with its own twist that will keep players thinking on their toes. The twist is that winning hands isn't the most important thing in the game, although you will earn a point for each that you do. Instead the focus lays on the player bidding the right amou…

Thirty One Review

Review Luke Campbell By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 11 months ago
Thirty One Review

You’ll play against two AI opponents in a series of matches in hopes of earning the most coins by winning hands. Players are given three cards initially to play with. From here, you’ll have to decide to either take the card on the table or flip t…

Card Drop: Solitaire Reloaded! Review

Review Kuyi Mobile By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 3 months ago
Card Drop: Solitaire Reloaded! Review

Card Drop is a card game where players must stack up cards on free falling cards to get points. The stacking system is similar to Solitaire, where players either stack cards in sequence counting up or down. The difference in Card Drop however, is that players must stack their cards before the falling cards drop off the screen. Players must stack as many cards as they can for points before the game timer runs out. Players stack cards by dragging cards from their piles at the bottom up…

Solitaire Siege Review

Review BadBumble By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 months ago
Solitaire Siege Review

Solitaire games are practically married to mobile phones. It's a partnership that makes sense as they're just digital versions of games almost everyone learns to play in one form or another. Solitaire Siege is BadBumble's take on Pyramid for the iPhone, adding new gameplay elements to keep the game interesting while also bundling the classic game and an arcade game as a bonus. As a simple card game, you only need to tap the cards on screen. This would be hard to mess up, but sometimes…

Totem Treasure Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Totem Treasure Slots Review

Totem Treasure Slots by Pokie Magic is a fantasy slot-machine app to add to the already large catalog of games in this genre. This is simulated gambling with more than a little bit of fantasy in its theme and its rewards, but it retains all the attractive qualities of a slots machine without the financial burden. Playing the game only requires touching the simulated buttons that are present on most real slot machines. At times you'll be prompted to participate in this game's Feature m…
