From the makes if Ittle Dew. Recommended from my time with it on Steam, especially at the introductory price!

I'll give this a go at that price.

Pocket Gamer has a review a few days back. They love it!

http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/...ew.asp?c=57648

Even though there is no MP, but there is no IAP either, I am giving it a shot.

The fact that the review mentions the 1997 PC MtG game alone makes it worth reading. That game was incredible, going to have to find some way to play that now!

OT: double dipped just to support a dev making great games, will probably play through it again anyway so definitely worth it!

Right well I've only played three matches so far far but this looks pretty cool, I'll try to explain.
Your playing field is a 3x3 grid and you have to place cards from your hand into the grid to make combos of 3 usually unless it's a special card, now each card has little arrows on it and that's what you have to match up to make the combos, then you choose to either attack your opponents life points or one of their cards,
There's 4 different types of card, attack,defence,health and neutral.
You buy and win booster packs of cards to make your deck, which has a limit between 25 and 40 cards. Each turn one of you goes first (decided by a coin toss) then you take turns placing one card and drawing a new card making combos and attacking each other until one of you has no life points.
For 69p this is a no brainer if you like card games.
It Has my recommendation. Just like a surprise out of nowhere a cool card game.
Battles seem nice and fast so far to, so it's not a game you have to sit and figure out for hours.
(I did go into the options and turn battle animations up to x2 to make things a little quicker)

Thanks for the impression.

Actually it is not "out of nowhere". Android version has been out for some time, Both IOS Board Games blog and Pocket Tactics mention this earlier.

Wasn't expecting this to only be a buck. Bought. No thought required.

I bought this a few days ago on Steam and I am loving it!

At this price, I will double-dip.

To further explain: this card game is basically like Final Fantasy's "Tera / Triple Triad" or "Pazaak" from KotoR with some variations in gameplay. And it's cool.
You can read my complete review on Steam.

I've never played any card games like this.
I was considering getting the new Adventure Time one, but the timers held me back.

For a buck, is this a good entry into the genre?

edit: "* An amazing soundtrack in a blend of Jazz and Hiphop" - and with this- I'm SOLD!
