Kard Combat – Mobile

Posted by admin On July - 21 - 2011

Guest reviewer, Chad Adams, talks about the recently released mobile card game “Kard Combat”

Kard Combat is a new release in the app store. This is a new game by Hothead Games, co-designed by Richard Garfield of Magic the Gathering Fame. This iPhone app is a free download letting you play many tower levels with a diverse assortment of cards. A $2.99 IAP lets you unlock all the mages and all 100 current cards for the game.

I’m actually not a M:TG fan, but I do like V:TES so I gave it a try. Battling up the tower I’ve found myself coming up with creative strategies to defeat the opponent, and not just logical ones. This is what really made the game shine for me. None of the cards seem over powerful, the power comes from how you use them together. I also like how the app doesn’t “nickel and dime” you with IAP. Just a single purchase gets you the full current list of cards. The game supports multiplayer and varying levels of AI difficulty.

My only grip is that the icon doesn’t look great and the graphics seem a bit “muddy” to me. However, the artwork on the cards is superb.
I’m having a lot of fun with this game and highly recommend it.
