Cool - didn't saw that coming!

The card game is really good, I wonder how good it is adapted to the iOS.
But it's true, this is a First Person Shooter Card Game, somehow...

May try it for just a buck.

I really like artwork from the screenshots. Very retro but I like it.

I was looking for the card game but wasn't able to find it.

Do you have a link possibly?

Same. Searched around, and couldn't find any trace of the original game. Does it go by a different name?

So far it's awesome. It's what you'd expect from a combination of a first person shooter and card game. Battles are intense and vary in length depending on the room and strength of the enemy. The graphics are well done and you watch the marine trudge to each room and look around as aliens burst into the scene with a battle.

Default Game Impressions

Just had a quick play, really enjoying this. The card battling mechanic is very nice, I believe this is based on an existing game? Im still working out all the rules having never played the original, but the battles are fun and not too long. The graphics create a really nice atmosphere - obviously inspired by ALIEN. Overall, will definately give a thumbs up for 99c.

I keep seeing references to "the card game," but can find no listing for it anywhere. Not even at BGG, which is the sort of place that lists 300 variations on Monopoly.
Apparently the actual card game isn't even out yet, and will be published later this year (according to accounts I found elsewhere). This video game is kind of like a preview of the card game to come. It looks interesting, but I'm waiting to hear a few more impressions myself.

I could not find a video of the game play. I contacted the developer to see if
a video could be posted.

The screens look great. I'm just not sure how it plays out.
