App description: Northmark: Hour of the Wolf is a card-based RPG. Choose to become a mighty warrior, a cunning mage or a powerful druid as you fight for glory and survival in arena style combat. Explore the corners of the kingdom from fiery deserts to deep forests, cold mountain peaks, and take part in the journey to the kingdoms of the Elves and Dwarves.

Northmark bears some similarities to other games of the "battle-card" genre, yet it successfully manages to differentiate itself by being a full-scale RPG with a focus on a strong story. Its unique battle-card system further emphasizes the original grand vision of a thriving Northmark region. As a player, you shall adventure across the fantasy lands of Northmark with its varied locations - Vibrant cities, Deep dark woods, Deserted lost ruins and the Ancient mystic sites sacred to the Druids and Elves.

But beware! Danger waits at every turn as you investigate the chilling mystery that threatens your homeland. Can you defeat assassins, thieves and hideous monsters? And who is the enigmatic stranger known only as The Wolf? Find out in Northmark!

Main features:
- Adventure across the lands of Northmark.

Played a bit for about an hour, seems very solid.
I'm not that fond of the global map graphics (expecially the sprites) but the game is very atmospheric and slick; really cool music too, and nice mechanics.
I hoplessy lost in my first try against the paladin wannabe woman :P

Seems a bit like Puzzle Quest, but with TB cards instead of match 3 fights...which is cool in my book.

Since it's free, am I to assume it's an IAP fest?

It's single IAP to full unlock the game (4 dollars or so, can't remember).
No other IAPs I saw, at least in the demo.

Afaik just $3.99 for full version unlock.

Game is also available for PC and Mac for $14.99.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

So I've been playing this for awhile and lovin' it!
Not sure if the plot is as obvious as it seems, but am enjoying the ride.

Combat takes a little getting used to, but plenty of choices and well thought out and fun.
Not sure yet, but this could be my fav game this year, give us some additional content to extend the longevity of this great game!
