App description: You scavenge the surface of the ruined world to help your people survive. But you can't do it alone. You reached out to an alternate reality where your world wasn't destroyed - and the only one who can help you... is you.

Aftershock is a tactical card combat game where your location & activity, and the real world affect what your character does in game.

- Fight enemies in strategic, accessible card combat.
- Adventure Mode - a CUSTOM single-player adventure is built around YOUR activity, using Motion & Activity and Location data, as well as real-world information like your local weather. Your life affects the game!
- Party Up with friends to boost your stats & earn more rewards.
- Level up, upgrade your character, and find new gear.
- Fight other players in the Arena! Asynchronous multiplayer battles let you jump in and out of games instantly.

Aftershock was designed to fit your busy life.

- Play in short bursts. No time commitment required.
- No tedious deckbuilding.
- No "metagame" where only one play style can win.
- Every character evolves differently.

For Adventure Mode, access to Motion & Fitness data, as well as Location data is required.

Optimized for phones, not tablets, and requires an M7 processor or greater.

Congratulations to wonderspark on this release. I was just reading the upcoming thread for this and he gave a lot of devotion and the kind of updates we don't often see from devs. I'll probably end up giving this a go soon as I like card games.

I'll have to pick this one up soon. I'm really interested in the real world integration, and I dig the overall style and presentation so far. I'm going to buy it regardless just to see it for myself, but I would love to hear some thoughts on it.

Thanks for the kind words, Talbs (and everyone!) -

Happy to answer any questions you might have! One of the goals of this game was to make something you could pick up & put down without penalty. I love strategic multiplayer games, but hated being in the middle of a match & getting interrupted by something I couldn't ignore (in my case, usually, my kids). That tension between "I need to keep playing!" and "I can't keep playing!" got really frustrating, and I found that as much as I loved games like Hearthstone & Vainglory, I stopped playing them because I'd almost always get interrupted mid-match.

So a big part of the design of Aftershock is that you can get interrupted any time & lose nothing. Multiplayer is asynchronous turn-based, so you can stop any time. In single player you can just pick it up & put it down, and you'll just resume where you left off. The whole goal with the real-world integration in Adventure Mode was that even if you didn't have time to play because you were doing boring crap (like "working" or "running errands"), your activity would still have an effect on the game that you could see when you played.

Anyway! I hope you guys get a chance to check it out. If you do, drop me a friend request in-game (helava), and I'll see you in multiplayer!

Thanks!

Is this fully premium or is there IAP? If so, what's the IAP?

builtthisway - try closing the app completely & restarting. Sorry, that happens every once in a while. We've been trying to get to the bottom of it. If anyone's got support-related questions, please don't hesitate to drop us a line - support@wonderspark.co, and we'll respond personally ASAP.

Thanks!
