Earthcore: Shattered Elements - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Building Your Deck

Posted by Rob Rich on May 21st, 2015

[Want to know if it’s worth investing your time in Earthcore? Check out our review]

At first glance, Earthcore: Shattered Elements seems like a rather simple card-battling game. Once you’re introduced to skills that will change quite a bit. Even more so once you start to acquire hero cards. But it’s not so complicated that we couldn’t put together a beginner’s guide for all you Earthcore neophytes.

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: STYLISH BUT BASIC
Titans is a stylish but overly simple card battler that's more about collecting than battling.

PAX East 2014 - Toy Rush is a Cute Mash-Up of Tower Defense, Offense, and Card Collection

Posted by Rob Rich on April 14th, 2014

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.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: FORGE YOUR DECK :: Read Review »

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.
