If you’re a 90’s kid, there’s a good chance you’ve been a Yu-Gi-Oh! fanboy or fangirl. This anime broke records back in the day with its gripping storyline, huge number of episodes and of course –its addicting card game that was soon brought to life. Before Pokemon trading cards, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading cards were the most beloved possession of an anime geek or just a trading card game enthusiast. Now, with smartphones quickly replacing physical games, we’ve got a game that follows the same theme and concept as the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Card games – Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation is a game that lets you connect with the world and your friends and challenge them to exciting card duels with fun-filled monster cards, magic spells and traps. The deck featured in this game is colorful and contains over 6,000 different cards that you can collect and play with. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation is a free-to-play card game that will definitely amuse any Yu-Gi-Oh fan. Its clear and simple gaming format is easy to understand. New duelers and experienced gamers alike will get together on this platform to challenge each other in battles of epic proportions.
There’s also a helpful in-game tutorial to help new players familiarize with the concept and gameplay of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation. People who have been playing the real trading card game will find this app to have some striking similarities to the original card game. In fact, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation includes all our favorite characters from the anime series and the same original monsters and cards. For old Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans, this game will be like a nostalgic park down the memory lane.
The gameplay of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation is pretty straight-forward and explained thoroughly in the tutorial. It’s the same familiar concept of building your mana and summoning monsters. A great deal of strategy is required to make the right move and ultimately become the victor of the duel.
The game features multiple gaming modes. The basic campaign mode pits you against CPU players in a storyline. The levels and opponents keep on getting tougher as you progress further into this campaign mode.
You can also play Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generations online with your friends or with random players across the world. There’s also an option of playing offline. All gaming modes offer unlimited free play so you can master your skills in the art of this card duel so that you can defeat more powerful enemies.
Your deck in this game ultimately defines how strong of a player you are. This holds true for the real trading card game as well. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation includes over 6000 cards and popular monsters like the Blue-Eyes White Dragons and Bujins. New cards and monsters are constantly released with the new updates of this app.
But as with most popular titles, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generations has gathered a lot of hate and criticism from players. The biggest issue most users face with this game is the inavailablity of all the good, powerful cards to build a strong deck. Sure, they exist in the game but hardly any of the good cards are available for free. You’ll need to make some hefty in-app purchases to get your hands on all the cool monsters.
There’s also the problem with a slow initial start-up of the game and an overall slow performance of the actual duel. Maybe the game would be more fun and action-packed if the speed of the duel was turned up.
