Battle Connection is a dueling card game where two fighters utilize tactics, unique strategy, and technical finesse to outwit and outfight opponents in fast-paced one-on-one duels. Gauge your opponents' strengths and intentions and play the perfect move to come out ahead!

BattleCON is unique among card games in that each character utilizes a totally different play mechanic to power their strategy. Gain levels, tap into the elements, control time, or change between forms. Each duel is not just a different matchup, but a wholly different game!

BattleCON for iOS is a direct port of BattleCON: War of Indines, the hit card game published earlier this year. It includes two brand new characters, Shekhtur and Eligor, as well as ten returning fighters from the standalone card game.

Features
- Play online against gamecenter friends.
- Local head to head play on a single device.
- Free to play with 4 characters unlocked at start and eight additional characters to unlock, each with a unique gameplay mechanic and alternate costume!
- Unlock extra characters through gameplay alone OR via in-app purchase--it's up to you.
- Training and Tutorial modes to get new players started up and winning in no time.
- All the awesome action of BattleCON, streamlined and distilled into a top-notch digital format.
- Crisp, high-quality retina graphics on supported devices.
- Universal app works on your iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

Who will like BattleCON?
- Fans of Collectible Card Games
- Fighting Game fans
- Strategy Game enthusiasts

...and plus, it's free to play, so why not try it out and see for yourself?!

I haven't really tried it out (because I'm playing Ascension), but the art style and interface look pretty hot and slick.

Really top notch presentation, imo.

Awesome

Would've expected a greater response than what this has had so far.
Where are all the TA TCG sharks at?

Gonna give this one a bash.
Ps, enter: a-sync worshippers if this doesn't have it already.

Storm of Souls has blanked everything else from my mind for now

Quick initial impressions while I remember. Nothing on gameplay yet though.

This game will be top contender for the game with the smallest text on an iPhone.

Menu selection is extremely laggy. Wait...wait..wait wa..now!

I'm really digging the game mechanics from what I've played of it. Hard not to think of Yomi when playing this one, but this seems to have some neat ideas of its own.

The app itself looks nice (at least on the new iPad), but yeah, the buttons in the menu are very slow to respond (to the point where I thought the app had frozen on the character select screen).

And for my edification, anyone find any way to purchase all the additional characters/costumes at once/as a bundle? Seems tedious to unlock each item one at a time - plus it'd be nice to get some bulk discount if you unlock everything at once.

Game plays great on the iPad. Serioursly I do notunderstand why people arent taking a break from Ascension (like I am) to play this game; its masterfully done.

I played a few AI matches but this did nothing for me. I'd rather play Nightfall for that adversarial 1-on-1 action.

There is a single player versus AI like Shadow Era or it's only multiplayer online?
