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

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: CCG+MATH=AWESOME :: Read Review »

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.

The Battle of the Wordsmiths Is Incredibly Unique, Available Now

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on February 17th, 2012
iPad App - Designed for iPad

Every time I think I've seen it all, an app comes along that proves to me we've not yet even scratched the surface. Presenting The Battle of the Wordsmiths, which, dare I say, is the first game to combine chess, collectible cards and the Yoruba visual arts. Yoruba is a region of Nigeria, and the game conveys the area's native art through character cards which are composed entirely out of words. The result is incredibly hip, and definitely unlike anything else you've seen before on iOS.

The starter deck allows players access to Creature and Element cards, and the developer has promised that the deck will be expanded in future updates. We don't yet know if the expansions will be free or require an in-app purchase, but considering The Battle of the Wordsmiths is free to download, it would make sense to anticipate some sort of freemium model for future additions.

If you're interested in the game's art style then check out the intro trailer. Sadly there's no gameplay to be seen, but you'll at least get a feel for what the game has to offer visually.
