Deleted after 12 stages. I love RPGs and Blackjack but it is barely more than a clunky flash game. I'm on a 5S and yet the delay between actions is awful. The gestures to hit or stand (tap/swipe) has misread me enough times that I just stick to the smallish buttons, but even then I've had stray inputs slip through just handling the phone.

I'm grateful it didn't cost me money to try, and the concept is okay. The few video ads allowed you to skip after about 5ish seconds not unlike YouTube.

With some optimization I think the game could be much better than it is now.

I'm enjoying this a lot. It's like a fantasy version of the Pazaak card game in KOTOR. Except that your special cards are consumable instead of collectible, of course. And Pazaak is part of a great overall package and this is a standalone game. But other than that, quite similar!

Sword & Poker and Sword & Poker 2 might be what you're looking for.

Didn't even try...wanted to but I downloaded it from the AppStore and went to play it and had to download MORE stuff. I do so hate it when I have to download one game twice...ugh

Gave up when i came across 2 things:
1. Made to watch a 30 sec advertisement
2. I had double aces and a 3, and the game counted it as 25, wouldnt let me hit again even though my hand could be classified as a 5 where i came from (singapore)
