App description: Step into the arena: build and train your own army of rats with this addictive card game!

Its your first day at Labanoir Academy, the university for mad scientists!
Confrontation is the main thing down there. But forget about the boxing gloves, were talking about genetically modified rat fights!
Decide your own strategy, capture hundreds of rats and train them to build a genuine war machine!

Use items to take advantage on your enemies, capture their cards while choosing yours closely, and get increasingly powerful cards to make your team evolve in the lab!
Fight thousands of players from all around the world in the multiplayer mode, and become the master of Labanoir Academy by winning duels against the enemies of the adventure mode.

Ready to discover Laboratz? Get along with the game by leading your mutant rats to great victory. Take advantage in fierce duels and show the entire world that you are the most talented scientists of your generation.
Laboratz is the ideal alternative to games such as Urban Rivals.

Discover rich and crazy graphics.
Fight against powerful opponents and save Labanoir Academy in the adventure mode.
Collect more than 150 rats.
Use dirty tricks to improve your strategy.
Train your team and participate in real-time duels in the multiplayer mode.

Comes with total synchronization between Facebook and iOS versions.

Awesome, I improve my rats and my strategy so fast thanks to my Facebook friends! Fred.

The adventure mode is stunning, at last we have a MMORPG trading card game with an authentic universe. Cant wait for the next chapters! Justine.

Much better than the other trading card games Ive tried so far and also the most based on strategy, I almost feel like playing a MMORPG for real! Laure.

I love this game ! The multiplayer game is awesome, unlike other card games like Urban Rivals! Arnaud.

Note : You can quickly become a Laboratz addict. Youll probably spend hours improving your strategy and fighting in the multiplayer mode. Forget about Urban Rivals, and get hooked on the first real MMORPG trading card game.
Laboratz is a MMORPG, therefore you need an internet connexion to play it.

Ok this is funny. Two game releases in one night with the same card battle mechanics based on FFVIII. Kaboom Monsters also looks pretty good.

Guess what drew me to them both as well, haha! Hoping that just one of them is good enough to bring back that awesome feeling!

Ya I was about to say the same thing. This is very similar to the card game in 8. Just a little different. Definitely interested.

iPad Mini Retina (at least): I can’t play the game. In the second game, after the tutorial, I can’t make a move after the CPU (as if the CPU move was not registered by the game) then my time ends and I lose the game. If I tap Retry the game says I have to wait 30 minutes for another key to be able to play.

Anyway, this game reminds me a Skylanders Giants mini game.

Horrible bugged. How could that Game get passed the Apple Review Process?

Did actually anyone from the Team at Adictiz did really tried out the Build before it was uploaded on the iTunes Store for a Review?


Judging by the Build Version (0.5.1) I guess that the current Build was never ment to go Public at all. Probably a planned Soft Launch that got totally wrong at some point.
