I was not going to pick this up because I'm not a fan of card games on my iOS but figured I owed Stardock for the awesomeness that was Fallen Enchantress and Legendary Heroes. They kept true to their word and delivered me two great expansions for free after preordering War of Magic.
So I sorta got BUSTED trying to play this. Bad pun intended. I'm at work right now and when I launched the game I noticed my volume was half way up. Well I can't have my coworkers thinking I'm wasting time playing games instead of working. So I rapidly tried to lower the volume I instead raised it full blast. Well I got caught...no worries I still have a job.
Anyways, I'm liking it so far. I love the art on the cards. At first I was worried that there was not going to be much strategy until I unlocked more of the card abilities. The game is well designed I've had many games were the game was completely dominated by one side then suddenly the tables turn.
GRAPHICS: I like the card and avatar art.
SOUND: Don't know I'm playing it at work. Shhh don't tell!!
CONTROLS: The controls don't feel wonky or anything.
GAMEPLAY: The game doesn't lie. You CAN lose everything in 1 turn. I'm happy to see there is a kickstarter for a physical game.
