It is a little clumsy getting started withou a tutorial or instructions but if you play any card games you can instinctively start picking up the play. The graphics are pretty good considering it's not universal. Not bad and it can only get better with some tweaking.

Waiting for some imps. Simply because where I'm from apple thinks $5 is the new $3, and that just isn't in my buy and test range. Wonder how much this price hike apple has done is actually reducing sales.

Anyway. Await the imps!

How is the game play actually?

Is this portrait only (I'm thinking if it's iphone only it probably is). I asked in Upcoming but no answer there. Maybe you'll add landscape when you add Universal?

Similar to Spectromancer if you remember that one.

Yes, it is portrait-only. I will look into landscape mode as well when I work to support iPad.

Here is a video that shows the duel gameplay: https://youtu.be/j0M1PkGC4HA

Is there any IAP, or do you get all the cards with the 2.99 price?

No iap man.
So if I line up a 7 4 creature with a 7 4 creature they don't kill each other in combat ? So far the lack of tutorial is really going to make people that dont play a lot of card games really confused. I play a ton and I'm struggling. Also there needs to be a pathfinding thing added to the movement part of the game(think dream quest )

On the bright side the art is pretty good and I think there will be some cool deck building once you get into it. Love the portrait mode.

There is no IAP. All 175 cards are available in the game. You create a character who starts with a basic set of cards, then find new cards to add to your deck as you explore and duel enemies. You can buy/sell cards at card shops and even forge cards by sacrificing other cards. There are card shops in each town and in dungeons, and each town has a forge. Card shops and forges contain random selections of cards, so you may not find every ultra-rare card every time you play through the game.
