Cards and Castles and enjoyable action/adventure, card-based mobile game.
One of the games I really enjoyed playing with my friends was Magic: The Gathering. I love the action/adventure element that was added to a card game. You get the same type of exhilaration from Cards and Castles by game developer, Bit Mass.
Cards and Castles was first launched for iOS and Android in April 2014. It’s a different approach to a traditional collectible card game like Magic. The game pairs the role-playing card game with a grid-based strategy game. There are a number of factions that you work through including Vikings, Crusaders, Warlocks, Pirates and Ninjas. As of this past week, Cards and Castles boasts more than 400,000 downloads worldwide.
When I started playing Cards and Castles I was very impressed. It felt so similar to a role-playing card game that I was right at home. The nice thing about this game is that you don’t necessarily have to have a person or group of people in order to play. You can play against the computer or other players around the world. This is something that makes me happy because I have found it hard sometimes to get people to play certain games.
Cards and Castles is free to download with in-app purchases available. The basic purchase for the game is Bit Point bundles, which act as in-game currency. Bit Points can be used to purchase cards, decks and Draft Contest entry. Users can play ‘on the go’ or live and you have the ability to create unique decks.

Cards and Castles is a lot of fun and it’s a free game that you don’t have to purchase anything for to enjoy. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, card-based fantasy game. Cards and Castles is available in the iTunes App Store and is a universal app across the iPad and the iPhone.
