So now you can play without needing actual cards and on the go, or with people around the world.

The base game with Hikaru, Kallistar, Cadenza, and Khadath is free. Additional characters and alternate art can be purchased or unlocked by winning online duels.

A bug report and a few requests. I have an iPhone 3GS, and it has already crashed a few times in the middle of a fight in training mode.

Speaking of training mode, I would really love to be able to play against the four characters I have paid for in training.

My final request is that you make a way to view a zoomed in card. Some of them are unreadable on the 3GS.

Other than that, I have already had a blast with this game and I just got it. I can't wait to learn all the different characters.

First suggestion would be to bundle all that IAP in some manner.

Pesonally I'd rather just pay for the whole game outright and all the individual IAP is a major turn off...but maybe that's just me.

I have the board game, but downloaded this right away. I think it has a great layout and GUI.

Crashes a lot for me. I have a consistent repro too.
Start a new training game with Kadath vs. AI Cadenza. Select Blight + Burst and play it for a game crash...

Not just you.

My other suggestion / request would be to slow down the animation a bit. When you're first learning it's hard to figure out what's happening (I know I can view the log.

I can confirm this one.

Downloaded this on an Ipad 2, having a blast!

Production values are top notch! Loving the slick menus and the theme music per character! Animation on the priority part right before the battle is very quick though (the one where the priority total are made big in the center)and a bit quick to miss.

Haven't crashed so far...
I tried an online game (with a a friend in gamecenter)and it was smooth.


Question: is there a "restore purchase" feature for the characters I bought? I can't seem to get them back when on the iphone?
Also the iap characters I bought don't appear in the training part.

Other than that, congrats on a great implementation!

I' m just learning the game. Never played the card game but am really enjoying it. I do agree with above though that the speed of the AI opponent could do with being slowed down a bit. Also after you have revealed your attack,the cards are covered up with the ingame request to choose activations etc. It would be good to be able to view your attack cards all the time.

The interface is really slow and non-responsive for me. I'm using an iPad 3 and it takes several seconds for my touches to register.

Also, I have trouble understanding some of the powers. For example, it's not explained what the elemental tokens (for Hikaru) do. It tells you if you play the character, but not when it's your opponent.

Also for Khadath, how does the Gate trap snare actually work? I've tried placing it between myself and the opponent, and the opponent is always able to step over it. I thought it was supposed to stop their current movement? Example: Cadenza uses Mechanical Burst in a corner, is able to step over the gate trap, that's a bug?

I noticed the gate trap not actually "trapping" the opponent too. Cadenza waltzed right over it. Kinda hurts Khadath quite a bit unfortunately.

Good news! The forum admin at Level 99 confirmed that the next update will have a fleshed out single player arcade mode where all the characters (that you have unlocked, I presume) will be playable by the AI. This will make a great game even better!

I responded and asked for a timeframe on the update, so I will reply back here when he responds.

Thanks

If you attempt to buy them again while logged into the same account, you won't be charged. I do plan on putting in a restore purchases button in the update though.

The plan is to have even the characters you haven't unlocked play against you as well. This should give you a taste of their power and an idea of whether you want to own them yourself.
