"The game can be played completely for free through to the very end, while some premium content will also be offered."

Hmmm, downloading now.

"Download the @FreeAppADay.com Store App and wish for more top rated apps like Guardian Cross" to be featured on FAAD!"

So it's only free for a while?

Hmm... Something that got my attention for this week's releases which look all too mediocre.

At least now there's something interesting.

Not really. FAAD always features freemium apps. Dead Trigger also featured by FAAD, and still free right now. So FAAD just features new, free apps, that's all.

Game Impressions

This is a 100%, online only freemium game. Pretty looking and with some good ideas, but I doubt you'll get too far before either buying coins or launching it twice a day to see if you recovered...

All times favorites : CAVE shooters, Space Invaders Infinity Gene, Groove Coaster, Infinity Blade 2, King of Dragon Pass, Ascension, Alien Frontier, Sorcery!, Gamebook Adventure

Just installed and it looks quite polished & comprehensive!

There are some IAPs in combination with timers and youll get some
gifts every day if youve logged on a regular base.

The fighting part seems to be a bit dull as you just have to
define the deck and all of the fighting goes automatically but maybe
theres more meat behind which i have to find out.

You can use this promo code to get some additional rare cards

I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying this so far.

Not hooked on the hunting mechanic but I suppose it's to limit the amount of guardians you can collect in one go.


Use my code when you start playing! I want a Cerberus card :3

I hope this doesn't start a trend for SE. I have no problem with their 20-30 dollar releases, but freemium with timers and code sharing nonsense? Sounds like they hired some people from Zynga to do this one...
