    Really liking the look and feel of this one on the large iPad Pro.
    The biggest draw for me was that it is a single player offline game and a one off purchase.
    It also has a slider for the music volume as well as screen rotation, and I appreciate devs that include those two features so much that I am going to buy the game for including them. :D

    Another favourite card battler game of mine that you guys might like is Spectromancer HD. Also can be played offline and it is premium and has a couple of dlc’s to buy.

    Oh wow I miss spectromancer! (More so kard combat to be honest). From what I recall spectromancer used to be on iPhone, but now when I check it seems to be iPad only. So strange they did that. I think it got knocked off iphone (and iPAD) a while ago in the 64 bit apocalypse, and they must’ve lately renewed the iPad version but not iPhone for some reason.

    Can you post a link? I seriously don’t see it in my App Store and a google search leads me to an iPad only page.

    you don't have to search it as HD, that's obviously the iPad version, its name is Spectromancer.

    anyway, here it is the link > https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spectromancer/id551013782?mt=8

    edit> oh, a tip for cases like this: click on the iPad version (if you find only that one), then on the dev link under the name of the game or above the icon, and you'll see all available versions there.

    oh, i see... that's the only version available, not updated for 64 bit.

    i've cheked on a desktop iTunes and it's available to buy there, so i assumed it could be downloaded also on a device, didn't see the date of last update.

    Edit: question was already answered.
     
  9. Hours in and this game is still great. New cards add more and more variation. Some wishlist stuff:

    1) Remove the "zoom-in on your card hand" feature after every time you play a card. It blocks the UI of your hero and also requires an extra tap to dismiss the zoomed cards. Removing this would make the game play much smoother.

    2) Rarity visuals on cards (diamonds, symbols, etc). I can see why you might remove that so everything looks equal but imo the rarity is a way for people to easily see which cards are the best especially in games with very many cards. You want to see which ones are the treasured cards and the most powerful cards quickly.

    3) A redesign of the deck builder screen. Very hard to navigate your own built decks and the buttons for save/load are very confusing, with even no option to "cancel" once you've clicked on one deck.

    4) Stats screen: Something that would list number of battles, battles won, cards played, favorite cards, etc. For these games, stat tracking is a way to grow a bigger attachment to the game and see how much you've invested into it.

    5) Lastly, more sound effects. I need some more "Omph!" and sounds for buttons, taps, battle engagements, etc.

    Early reviews on the appstore are very positive but some do agree that there could be some more polish to this already impressive game!

    Are you sure it’s a bug? It could be that the opponent has used a power that stops you from being able to attack them.

    Great game btw....think that some of the opponents are overpowered when you get to level 4 though!

    Thumbs up for (1) & (5). I totally agree for (1). And also the chime music when you win it's not very good. You could add something more clear, more happy, more enthusiastic.

    Had another issue today where this time it actually showed the little blue glow around me meaning I should be able to attack. Pulled the line to an enemy and it did nothing at all. There are bugs with the game. Not all the time but they are there.

    And no, I did not have a status effect like the chains over me that would prevent me from an attack.

    Oh and forgot to mention one time I had a health potion card as the cursor to drag around for some odd reason and it again did nothing.

    Oh yeah! I forgot to mention that chime. The music in the game sounds great and sharp then the victory chime sounds really bad and choppy.. Not sure why.

    Not sure if the devs will read the messages here, may have to talk to them on Discord. It's a lovey game so I'd be happy if the implemented at least some polishing requests.

    The hand drawn artwork filling my screen from edge to edge is beautiful.

    Ended up unlocking the whole game today sort of “by mistake” as I was trying to figure out how much it was and kept my thumb on the iPhone home button.. haha! However I read the comments hear and so many of the commentators here I truly trust and it seems that this is an amazing game for $2.99 with tons of variety! I’m a fan of premium games and never played that many card games.

    I have lost portal but haven’t played it much yet and be haven’t but any expansions.

    I’ve downloaded Star Relams many times but never played it... I’m a bit confused on Star realms IAPs and can’t tell what all the IAPs are beyond full unlock and all the extras like gambit set, cosmic gambit, colony wars, etc... it seems to have so many IAPs that I just don’t get it and I don’t want to get to involved and find out I need to keep buying IAPs etc...

    I’m going to set out on this new adventure!

    Don’t happen always but yes very often, here I put a video where I try to reproduce the crash repeatedly pressing the quests button in several locations with success to reproduce just in a minute.



    I also report the crash to the discord channel in a hope to resolve it.
