I played for a bit today. My first observation was that it did not fill the screen on my ipad-black bars on either side. But the game play was not hard to pick up and I caught on to it pretty quickly. I will play more this weekend.

Played through the tutorial and then one game vs AI after that. And...um....it seems like another battler. The difference here is that you play your cards at the same time and you have 3 lanes but 2 positions in those lanes. Those positions also have resolution orders so it does matter where you place cards particularly when trying to get a direct hit on the opponent.

But really, it's another battler CCG. I really like pathfinder adventure card game and still play that. Why? Because it's unique and has such tight and thought provoking gameplay. This one just seems like another twisted hearthstone for the sake of it. I do hope others find a way to get invested and have a grea time, but for me, I've had enough. I've seen this before.

This is kinda weird. Do we possibly have a “Cuphead” situation here? By that I mean what probably happened (with Cuphead at least) is that a porting company was given the source code and then published it themselves? Because the seller on the App Store is G-Mei and not 37 Games. And also it looks more or less like a finished app but the weird “engrish” and the black borders make me feel that this is not quite ready for prime time.

Edit: I realize that this is not a port. Just wondering if the source code may have been handed off and used inappropriately thereafter.

the gameplay speed is painfully slow, every single action takes forever, as if time was slowed down. unplayable unless you're a sloth in real life :/

I wasn't really pulled by it, I was hoping for something new to play in the Card Game scene. I found that when placing cards the game doesn't seem to really pick up very well where you finger is because there were a few occasions where it would put it on the lower lane when I was aiming on top row. I won't be returning to it but not saying is garbage, just not for me.

Broken

The game is completely unplayable on an iPhone X as it crops the screen so the buttons are gone, seems like a rush job without really testing it.

What I realized was that what I thought was normal wasn't, so I hope they fix these issues soon.

Not trying to be harsh but it sure feels like a half-assed CCG game using licensed art assets from Pavio. The simultaneous turns is clever but beyond that it feels sooo generic.
