Piqued my interest, like these games. This looks promising with a big card set.
I might take the plunge later.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Picked this up the other day:

Fantastic game and probably one of the better card combat games on iPhone. Plays in portrait mode (which more games could use) and the cards are all readable without zooming. Game is intuitive and quick to pick up, looks good, sound is great and has a solid challenge mode / high score chase.

Best of all: developer cares and responds to feedback (as they already have on reddit).

I'm the other guy working on Shadow Spires and I love that someone notices. As always any feedback/suggestions are appreciated.

I just downloaded and played through the campaign for the first time on the normal level. Seems like a fun game that I'm going to have fun dinking around with.

I would appreciate a few thoughts in the help menu on what your vision for each color is (and how they differ), and maybe a few strategy tips to get a new player started.

Other than that though... props! iOS definitely needs more cool games like this. :-D

Thank you for downloading the game, and thank you double for the feedback. We'll look into adding another page to the help menu in a future update to clarify theme elements. Part of the reason we didn't do so is because when we add more cards, we did not want to completely throttle the theme of the new cards. Regarding strategy tips, that's a good idea too, and we'll consider implementing that in the next couple of updates. Thanks for playing!

Hey Toucharcade Peoples,

Based on feedback, we are implementing the following in the upcoming update:

- faster deck editor load times
- graphical tweaks
- card counter bug fixed

New cards will also be added soon. Any additional ideas are always appreciated and considered.

Thanks for your feedback and support!

I thought of another suggestion. It would be nice to be able to have multiple decks/builds.
