Elysium TCG - Coming soon!

Hello everyone!

I am exited to share with you all JBStudios' soon to be released game Elysium TCG.

Some of you keen searchers may have found our video on youtube asking for beta testers. That video showed some of the basic game play and some of the cards available.

I am here now to show you the finished product that will be available for your iPhones very soon!

The games main features will be the ability to use special game changing magic effects that can give you the edge over other players without having to play a card and the ability to change the playing field to an element that will support your deck and give your cards a stats boost.

On first release there will be 155 cards to collect. 30 will be given as a starter deck and more will be given away for free on each update release to reward commitment.

If you have any questions about features please feel free to ask.

Here is a gameplay video we made during testing. I will make a new one for you all of the finished game.

This looks great. I'm a big fan of tcg's especially on iOS.

Looks pretty cool. I'll probably jump straight in on release.
Appears like you build up mana by sacrificing cards of that colour? Hence no action for like the first 3 turns each lol. Will be interesting to see how this works out.

Not a fan of 3 things though:
Turning table. Doesn't need to, just show cards as they appear from the opponent.
Speed just seems a little slow. Not too bad, just a tad slow in some aspects.

Is there any card types such as removal? And buffing etc?
Do those colours form an affinity to each other. Like is an all red deck viable? All blue? Blue/red? Etc

Got an eta on release date?

As i think Lyace has noticed this was released late last night. And yes at the moment it requires iOS 6 (This will be lowered in a couple of weeks if the feedback is promising)

Thank you for the feedback of the video Talbs. There are quite a few cards that do removal in the game my personal favourite is the black hole which removes every card in the field if your in a tight spot.

Cards boost each other with a good combination and also the land cards boost all cards in the field of that resource type.

The sacrificing that you noticed was actually the playing of factory cards which increases the income of that resource.

Sticking to one or two types of resource is highly recommended as the boost from other creatures can add up well.

Please give me your thoughts on the app good or bad so we can make this app everything that you guys want in a TCG!
