Remember the time when trading cards blew up and out of proportion? Well, now certain app games are following suit and keeping the spirit of card games alive. We’ll have to admit that there was a certain charm to the real life Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card games that no app can ever replace but Hearthstone is an Editor’s Choice app that has definitely left an impression on us. Free to download for Android and iOS users, Hearthstone combines an addictive gameplay with a whole of tact and strategy to keep players dedicated to it.
The developers of Hearthstone, Blizzard Entertainment, have some pretty amazing titles to their credit including World of Warcarft and the highly adored Overwatch. Hearthstone is yet another one of their massive successes that takes shape in the form of a collectable card game. In Hearthstone players can collect and accrue powerful cards to build their own customized unbeatable decks. The variety of cards is colorful and you can collect minions, sling spells and summon monsters to defeat your opponent all in the battle field.
As with all the classic card games, Hearthstone relies heavily on strategy as well as a little bit of luck. Players with more powerful decks and cards also have the upper hand in the game but this strength and rare card collection comes only when you’ve progressed and emerged as a formidable player in the game.
Hearthstone is admixed with fantasy, magic and a whole lot of mayhem. It combines all the right elements to satisfy a professional collectable card game player. What we enjoy most about Hearthstone is the fact that it supports duels against friends and other online players in an exquisite way. You can clash with your friends and join millions of other players on the platform. The more you battle and the more duels you win, the greater you will be as a player and the better cards you will be able to unlock and add to your deck.
The universe featured in Hearthstone, as mentioned earlier, is also superbly diverse and well formulated. You can collect all kinds of fantastical cards and brave your way through the elaborate map built in the game. Hearthstone hosts a bunch of landscapes and areas that you can explore one at a time as you battle your way through them. These places include the forest of The Witchwood, the Knights of the Frozen Thrones, Un’Goro, dark caves, catacombs, caverns and much more. There’s also an element of story in the game. You can become the powerful Death Knight and you can conquer the battlefields of Azeroth – all through dueling through your card deck.
Hearthstone supports real time, player vs. player combat with easy controls and an addictive gameplay. The instructions of how to play the game are given in the beginning and are well explained. How you proceed through every duel is up to your individual game plan and battle strategy. Simple tap controls are all you need to control your deck in the combative player vs. player combat.
Hearthstone supports multiple languages and has received terrific feedback in the app stores. There have been reports of some connectivity issues with the game but overall Hearthstone is definitely the game to download if you’ve always loved strategy-based fantasy collectable card games.
