We took a look at Toy Rush at PAX Prime back in September, and spent some time with its Canadian release, but now the waiting is almost over.

In case you missed our previous coverage (shame on you), Toy Rush is a combination of tower defense and tower offense, with players collecting cards from packs in order to earn toys to send after other players or to earn new defensive towers. 50 solo missions will also be available so that players may hone their skills, and there will be daily challenges to complete for bonus rewards, but the real point behind all of it is to take on your friends in glorious toy-based combat.

Toy Rush should be coming to the US App Store next month for free.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Stone Blade Entertainment has updated its iOS trading game SolForge. The expansion adds in new cards, changes to the tournament and store systems, and a new mechanism called card forging.

Stone Blade chief Jusin Gary says, “new content is the lifeblood of any successful collectible game. We’re excited for our players to experience our first large expansion set, and hope they all have as much fun playing with the new cards as we had making them!”

We reviewed the game in the Fall of last year, and mostly enjoyed it.

The updated version of SolForge is available on the App Store for free.

Third-Person Shoot-Em-Up The Collectables Arrives for iOS

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The Collectables, the cheeky yet realistic fruit of a collaboration between Crytek and DeNA, is live on the App Store.

In this hybridized third-person romp, players get to work as a group of upgradeable mercenaries while fighting against a ruthless enemy. The game sports rich graphics, a card system tactical combat, jungle scenery, and plenty of explosions.

“Crytek managed to do the unthinkable and integrate their remarkable CRYENGINE technology into the company’s first free-to-play mobile game,” said Barry Dorf, head of strategic partnerships at DeNA. “The Collectables is a visually stunning and explosive gameplay experience that pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved on mobile devices.”

The Collectables is available for free (with option in-app purchases) on the App Store.

Card Hunter, which is a well-known and well-liked collectible card game playable in-browser, will be making its way to the iPad later this year according to the game’s producer Joe McDonagh. The game primarily features the standard deck-building and tactical maneuvering of many digital card games, but throws in a game board and a delightful aesthetic to make it an awesome tabletop game.

McDonagh and his team from Blue Manchu Games – the developers of the flash version – will be working with newly founded indie studio Dropforge Games, which is stationed in Seattle. Pocket Tactics got in touch with McDonagh regarding when we should expect to see the port of Card Hunter come to life. “We’re not announcing a release date yet but this is not a an epic development project,” he said.

Keep your eye out; we’ll let you know when Card Hunter makes it to iPad.

CloudMagic Cards Seamlessly Pairs Email to Your Favorite Web Services

Posted by on March 12th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Email is becoming a thing of the past for many younger internet users, but for most of us it’s still a critical part of our workflow. CloudMagic is already known as a decent iOS email client, but the app recently became a lot more innovative with its new “Cards” feature. The new 1.0.19 update notes boast that Cards allow you to “get all your work done without ever leaving your email.”

How exactly? The video below will do a great job of explaining it, but essentially, Cards integrates your favorite internet services like Pocket, Trello, and Evernote into your email inbox. Receive a recipe to cook for dinner later? Just use the Evernote card and save it as you would if you had found that recipe online. But that’s just one example; Cards is a whole lot more powerful than that.

You can get CloudMagic with its new “Cards” feature right now on the App Store for free.

Ninja Crime Releases Retro-Feeling Turn-Based Card Battling Game Calculords

Posted by on February 25th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Calculords, from Ninja Crime, is out on iOS. It’s an interestingly themed game with old-school flair and several different elements. The gameplay itself is set in outer space, and it runs in single-player mode. There are 200+ cards to collect, and cards are cast using number puzzles. Cards disappear after being used, and if all cards are cleared the coveted “Calculord Bonus” is awarded.

The whole adventure is presented as a battle for planetary expansion. Success in the card element advances units across the battlefield to overrun the the enemy’s base. Thus, strategy is an important consideration, and potentially adds to the experiment.

Calculords is available for free on the App Store.

Summoner Wars is Getting a Price Overhaul, Along with a New Expansion

Posted by on August 2nd, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

One of Playdek’s most popular iOS card games, Summoner Wars, is going through a few changes this Monday (8/5).

The most immediately noticeable difference will be the price; or rather the inclusion of one. Playdek is removing the freemium model and making the base game $0.99, with online play available right out of the box, so to speak. A “Lore” menu is also being added so that players can look up background and strategy information, and a new AI opponent is being included for those more interested in solo play.

The expansion will be available through an in-app purchase of $2.99 and includes two new armies: the Benders (pyromancers) and the Mountain Vargath (goatmen). The former focuses on controlling the actions of their rivals, while the latter is all about brute strength.

Both factions and new base game features will be available on Monday.

With the arrival of Mothers Day, children everywhere will be scrambling to show their appreciation. Perhaps consider one of these iOS options as well. Not that they’d replace quality time, of course. By all means go and treat your mom to a nice dinner, give her a call, or whatever else you were planning to do. We just ask you to consider adding one (or all) of these digital possibilities to your Mother’s Day plan.

fav4mom01Flower Garden
Who doesn’t think of getting their mom some flowers on Mothers Day? Nobody, that’s who. Flower Garden allows users to grow their own flora, as well as acquire new seeds for more exotic (and in some cases fictitious) examples. After some TLC they can then harvest their flowers and create a bouquet. A bouquet they can send to anyone on their Contacts list. And if the price seems a bit steep don’t fret; there’s a possibility (nothing official, just guessing) that it may go on sale like it did last Mothers Day.

fav4mom02Let’s create! Pottery HD
Mom always likes it when you make her stuff. She always held on to that hideous ashtray you made for her back when you were in first grade, even though she doesn’t smoke. Now you can shower her with a ton of virtual ceramics without the hassle of any cleanup. Much like Flower Garden it’s possible to send photos of a piece to anyone you want, including mom. Unlike Flower Garden it’s also possible to give a particular favorite physical form through a little in-app purchase of some 3D printing.

fav4mom03Cards
Moms also like to get cards. Not just on Mothers Day, either. Downloading Apple’s official custom card creation app is practically a no-brainer for such an occasion. And as an added bonus you can send her customized greeting cards of the family/kids year-round. Think about that: the ability to send your mom personalized (and physical) greeting cards whenever you’d like, for any occasion. All without having to browse through the paltry selection at the store.

Giving your mom some eFlowers or making her a card is cool and all, but putting together a comic book that chronicles your adventures fighting crime (or even something a bit more tame) is just plain fun. I dare any moms out there not to laugh, or at least crack a smile, when their sons or daughters present them with the first issue of The Incredible Mom, Spidermom, or even Iron Mom.

With less than a week to go until Valentine’s Day, it’s the ideal time to think long and hard about what to buy a loved one. A more thoughtful idea, however, would be to make something personal for that special person in your life. It’s sweet, considerate and often a lot cheaper and more original than buying something from a store. The App Store offers plenty of inspirational apps for those looking to try out some craft based alternative presents, and here are my four favorite apps to use.

Skrappy
Scrapbooking has been all the rage for quite a while now. It can get fiddly, expensive and messy, however, so why not use a virtual alternative? With Skrappy, users can create a personal scrapbook for their loved ones, encompassing images, audio and video clips before sharing the creation. It’s simple yet fun to create such books with plenty of inspiration there, too. Why not create a book all about your first date together? Or a memorable holiday? Or even as part of a romantic proposal?

Craftgawker
Not quite sure where to begin but convinced you want to make something craft based for your partner? Craftgawker should be able to provide some great ideas. It’s an app that’s a photo gallery of inspiration. Users can search through the many thousands of ideas, before learning more via the tutorial connected to such photos. A voting system ensures that the ideas are all of a high quality and bound to get the creative juices flowing.

Wilton Cake Ideas & More
Everyone loves cake, right? All the more so when it’s a cake made entirely for you. It’s a nice and sweet (in every sense of the word) touch and can prove distinctly romantic. Wilton Cake Ideas & More helps users bake some delicious and amazing looking creations with hundreds of different designs, catering for every occasion and interest. It doesn’t just include cakes either, with cookies and cupcakes also included. For a loved one with a sweet tooth, this could be the ideal thing to make Valentine’s Day extra special.

Cards
For those not as creative as they’d like to be but with a few ideas still under their sleeve, Apple’s own app Cards should make things a little easier. The app allows users to create their own cards and customize them exactly how they want, all through their iOS device, before getting a physical copy sent out to their beloved. It’s simple, straight forward and still offers the personal touch for those that don’t want to get their hands dirty with glue or glitter.
