I'm afraid my initial experience was disappointing, because this runs terribly on my 4th generation. Slowdown, freezes, villain cards disappearing. And what is the list of strange numbers appearing on the right side?

It is rather fun to see how they literally rethemed the game from Marvel Legendary.

I think they uploaded the incorrect build to the app store. Those strange number are almost certainly debug data. They've already released an update (it just appeared in the last hour or so for me), and the debug window seems to be gone.

Right now, I have one serious problem with the app. Usually, you can long-press on a card to zoom in and see what it does. But for some reason, you can NOT do this at certain critical times. Like, when I have to "KO" a card from my hand, the first card I touch is chosen. This is a big deal, because the cards are shown the way they would be if I was physically holding them: fanned out and overlapping, with only the far right card fully visible. So, I'm trying to choose a card based on what I can glean from a thin sliver of the left side of each card. NOT COOL!

I don't have an update available, but I also don't have a debug window. I can't believe this is the right version though.

I also have had the villain row disappear, players taking turns on top of each other (the numbers and cards just keep going up), inability to look at cards prior to KOs, my own turn occurring even though another player is selected and their cards still on the board, sound randomly coming on (loudly) then muting, the entire screen going completely blurry (have to kill app to fix), and the tutorial panel coming up (showing the six video tutorials) in the middle of a game!

A buggy mess for me so far. This is on an iPad Air 2 running iOS 10.3.3.

The 1.01 update removes the debug information, which is good. I'm running into the problem of being able to take actions during other players' turns; this is against Bots, I haven't tried playing against actual people yet.

Agreed. It's a buggy mess. Constant disconnects and if you do disconnect you cant return to a previously running match. This is a critical bug. I bought the base so I could play offline or AI only and without the ability to come back to a game what's the point... Also ill check again but I don't have that update, so the debug is still on the right side. I love deck building games so i hope this gets some much needed updates... cause if it goes the way of some ports where they release and leave as is then yea.. will keep posting to tell people don't buy lol.

Ive known about Legendary Marvel in the game stores for ages but never played, i like this set up and mechanics just a shite release for now

UPDATE: Ok the update was queued so I just missed it. Updating now

Also... boy do I hate "requires an internet connection" games! Grrr

Bugs: Twist on Scheme: No More Heroes doesn't activate
Fix: Add a players deck size, add the Villian and Hero deck remaining cards... silly to make a tap to see stat :/

Note: UpperDeck play Ascension app, see how its done, get ideas, replicate, repeat.

While I enjoy the game being presented, as others have suspected, it really does feel like they'd dumped an early beta on us so as to coincide their release with GenCon this weekend. So while I can't fully endorse the game in its current state, I'm assuming the GenCon sale of unlocking the full version for $1.99 is just this weekend (normally $4.99).

Something I found interesting and not obvious at first is that, technically, whether you defeat the Master Villain in the game as a team is largely irrelevant. There are 2 ways to win a match, being the player to strike the final blow vs. the Master Villain, or, if things go wonky and the big baddy successfully carries out his scheme, the game will end instantly granting the win to whomever has the most vps. So since there is always a winning player, even if the boss defeats you all, you might want to consider helping the baddy along with his scheme if you currently have the most vps.

I don’t know much about this one, but the IAP only shows the unlock everything option. Is this a ‘single payment for all cards in current pack’ game in the vein of Ascension, or is it a card pack buying game in the vein of Magic? I might jump if it’s the former!
