I'm a bit of card game guy so despite this looking like a cheesy hearthstone.....I'm very intrigued.

First imps....Have played through the tutorial and it is or seems a very polished game.
The underlying formula takes from Puzzle & Dragons but there is enough difference to allow you to enjoy this as a separate entity.
The initial facebook logon was a turn off but you can play as a guest. You have various creatures with their own decks of cards and also the ability for some amazing combos, so there is a depth to the game.
There is a premium currency called dragon stones via IAP which allows the purchase of gold eggs, ie. Rare creatures, which have better stats and cards. So far I have received one gold egg after completing tutorial so I'm hoping you can grind for more.....and yes, there is stamina as well.....which gets used up per battle. Not sure how far I will get before hitting a wall. We shall see.

Downloaded it and gave it half an hour or so. It's actually not bad. Has a mechanic to it that I don't think we've seen before. Unfortunately it does scream freemium but just how much I haven't determined yet. The mechanic that this employs means that (at least upon getting familiar with the game), there's quite a bit to consider each turn. Just even attacking with a particular unit determines the card draw pool that you draw from.

Don't like the Facebook or guest login as mentioned pagan

Well I haven't had much more time on it but the few more games I played I have thoroughly enjoyed.
There is a great depth to this and the decks and creatures you can amass.
There is full deck building and editing, power ups of creatures and fusion as well for increasing levels.
Creature eggs can drop after defeating a creature and I managed to get a gold (rare) one just now.
The stamina timer has not been an issue so far but I've only played a couple of hours.
So far not bad at all.
Hope this helps

Kung Fu is the same dev group behind Card Wars: Adventure Time, which is my favorite card game. So I have great expectations for this one. So far, Im not disappointed. It looks to be a deep game. I think eventually I will log in to FB just to preserve my progress when I goes worldwide.

Edited to say: OK, well I've been playing this most of the afternoon. Nuff said.

Game is broken for me. I was able to complete the tutorial battle but that's it. The 2nd battle always seems to let the opponent go first. Problem is, she doesn't do anything. I have a "go" button but it tells me to summon a monster first. I have 0 energy so I can't summon. I've tried quitting and restarting the game. I used up the 4 remaining stamina I had left and it's the same each time.

Does anyone know if this is an online only game? Just curious since Card Wars is an offline game (but is mostly a solo game).
