I found this in the app store. You should try to post a link (I can't from this computer)-the app description shows the publisher so I wasn't sure if it was your game until I downloaded and opened it-but I really like it! It was easy to learn and I still have to figure out all the nuances but it looks very promising. I can always use help with my poker game. Good luck!

Looks great! Though to be brutally honest, online poker games aren't my thing because I think of poker as casual pick up and play anywhere games, which this can't be. I don't have good wifi or data either.

I spent some time with this at lunch and I have to say the devs have really thought things through. This game goes much deeper than I expected. There are energy timers but they don't seem like a huge obstacle so far-it looks like the energy replenishes at a very reasonable rate that makes me think that the devs want me to keep playing the game (as opposed to AB2 and Pokemon Shuffle). Even if you don't make a poker hand the cards have an attack value so you still get attack points in. The only thing Im slightly confused about is the troop type and how it relates to the card suits so that I can effectively manage my deck, but I'm sure that will come with practice.. You guys did a great job, I hope this game gets some recognition.

I started an Add-Me thread in that forum section.

I have never seen my battery burn away faster. On an iP6, from 100% to 70% in 15 minutes. Holy craperoli.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

wasn't paying attention to my battery before I started playing this so can't comment on that yet, but I'll check it out later on.

I'm really enjoying the game and mechanics tho. graphics are nice too. we'll see how long I stuck with it but first impressions are very good.
