During a game, players take on the roles of investigators in an attempt to thwart the evil machinations of a sinister cult who have stolen the Necronomicon from Miskatonic Universities library, and have used it to open the gateway to another dimension.

The Necronomicon Horror combines the quick, addictive pace of fantasy card games, combined with the dice-rolling strategy of table-top role-playing games. You can win achievements in the game to unlock new bonus content, and there will be support for downloadable expansions in the future.

Grab your electric torches and revolvers! Youll take on the role of unlikely investigators swept up in a battle against cosmic horrors. With the help of allies, weapons, forbidden knowledge, strategy, and a few twists-of-fate, youll attempt to stop the minions of Cthulhu from invading our world.

The Necronomicon Horror features over 100 beautifully designed cards--created by a dream team of talented artists who have worked for some of the biggest movie, book publishing, and game studios in the world.

The Necronomicon Horror will contain the following key features:

* An evolving game setting based on the pulp horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft.
* Hours of game play a different game and outcome every time you play.
* Outstanding artwork and production values. Play with a deck of over 100+ stunning cards.
* The fast-paced, addictive game play of RPG and Collectible Card Games, play on-the-go, anywhere!
* Free Bonus Content can be unlocked during the game. Expand your deck by winning new cards.

The Necronomicon Horror is a solo player adventure designed to be played in quick, sanity-bending intervals. During a typical game youll play using an 100+ card deck, drawing various investigators, monsters, treasures, weapons, relics, pitfalls, story cards, and special ability cards, which are all scripted to interact with each other in strategic ways. Your goal is to keep your investigators alive to defeat a Monster invasion which threatens all of Arkham.

Like most trading card and role-playing games, the outcome is driven by an exciting interplay of chance, skill, and strategy.

Players will have the option of purchasing future booster decks to expand the game, and collect new and rare cards by winning achievements and high scores.

Lucidsphere Media Games Studio developed The Necronomicon Horror as an innovative way to experience the compulsive fun of horror role-playing and collectible card games on Apple's iOS devices.

Thanks Everyone, and remember, Redux is for devices with Retina Display and iPads - there's no difference between this and Necronomicon Horror, as far as features and gameplay. It just has bigger, sharper and higher resolution art and backgrounds.

Both Redux and Necronomicon Horror will be jointly supported with identical updates and features.

Happy Halloween!

This is great, I've been looking forward to it for ages.

One criticism I have is the dice rolling is very abstract and feels much too much like the random number generator that it is. The upshot is a lot of the tension and suspense of the game is lost and it can feel a little mechanical. An excellent example of dice rolling done well on iOS is the gamebook adventure series where the short seconds as the dice settle lead to very tense moments.

One other thing, can anyone tell me where can I find further details on the IAP expansion?

Two things.

1. Please add autorotate.

2. Is all you did just use the same card design but making them smaller to look ok on an iPad? Is that all?
