Used to be you would see a couple soft launches each month, now it's more like a few each week. Freemium has firmly established itself as the primary monetization scheme on the App Store.

Looking at the comments this has been out since last year. It does look interesting but I'm going to bet is an online-only game looking the the NZ comments and people saying they can't connect.

This is a really great game. Although it is freemium, it is also an actual game. Although it is collectable, it is also an actual game. With all the freemium games that keep hitting the market, it is amazing how many forget to include an actual game, so this one has really grabbed my attention. The basic mechanic is a lane battler, tug-of-war game. However, there is no leveling of cards that throws off the balance in so many games. Individual cards have rarity, but the higher rarity, stronger cards take significantly longer to play, allowing a balance to remain that keep common cards useful as you progress. Aside from creatures, you have classes you can choose to play as that offer access to certain spell and ability cards. Considering how many freemium games I've deleted recently for have no depth or longevity, it is nice to see one that may stand the test of time.

Looks like I spoke too soon. Once you get to a certain level you start to unlock buildings that in turn slowly introduce all the annoying features that in general make freemium titles so undesirable.

Oh well, still seems to be fun so far. I'll at least get my $0 worth of entertainment. Code: 1044943 if anyone wants free cards.
