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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
