Android game

United Soft Media (USM) has released a digital version of Legends of Andor (LoA) for both iOS Universal and Android. The mobile app – subtitled “The King’s Secret” – does not follow the exact same campaign as in the cardboard box, but fans of the game will find the characters, map and gameplay familiar.

Legends of Andor is a co-op epic fantasy adventure that takes you into a fantastic kingdom full of magical creatures and brave heroes. Players must defend the king’s castle, playing as a warrior, sorceress, dwarf and archer. These four characters must complete difficult trials, defeat evil opponents and protect the country from a dark secret.

During the mobile campaign, a player will guide the heroes through twelve exciting legends in which new, challenging opponents and familiar companions await. Players familiar with the board game will be able to delve deeper into the mystical past of the legendary kingdom of Andor and get to know a previously unknown story.

The LoA app is a single-player experience, with simple rules and an extensive tutorial that make it easy to get started. Although no LoA knowledge or experience is needed to play, both long-time fans and newbies alike should enjoy a challenging gaming experience.

The app was developed together with original Andor board game designer, Michael Menzel. It is available for the iPhone and iPad via the App Store and for Android via Google Play. It can be played in German, English, French and Spanish.

Challenge friends to travel throughout the city with your apprentices, make transactions, and collect rubies, all from your mobile device. You can play Istanbul anywhere!

Acram Digital announced a digital version of the 2014 Kennerspiel des Jahres winner is now available for iOS and Android. The app features 100% of the original rules, a pass-and-play option, cross-platform online multiplayer options, and preset or randomly generated game boards.

There are a variety of options created with this app including eight different languages English, German, Dutch, Polish, French, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese Simplified. It also offers a color-blind mode to make the game available to even more players.

Istanbul is one of the best 100 board games of all time. We have used our experience, working on Eight-Minute Empire and Steam: Rails to Riches, to provide you the digital edition of this great game.

Fantasy Flight Games has announced plans to release a Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner The Card Game. Along with a revised core set will come significant changes to tournament play.

Based on the original card game by legendary designer Richard Garfield, Android: Netrunner The Card Game remains an asymetrical two player card game set in a dystopian Android future where subversive netrunners face off against the monolithic megacorps in an effort to control data.

 

The more things change, the more they stay the same

The concept of Android: Netrunner remains the same. one player assumes control of a monolithic megacorporation and it’s near infinite resources. A second player take on the role of a “runner,” a cybercriminal attempting to bypass the megacorporation’s defenses and steal data. Corps gain points by advancing agendas, while runners steal points by stealing agendas from the corps. Both sides attempt to gain their points through clever card play and use of hidden information.

What cards are available to you and to your opponent set the stage for this showdown. The Revised Core Set will include 247 player cards, 133 Corps cards and 144 Runner cards to do battle with.

What’s New?

While the Revised Core Set creates a new entry point for Android: Netrunner, it does not introduce any new cards into the game. Players who own the original Core Set along with the Data Packs available in the Genesis Cycle and the Spin Cycle will already own everything available. While card art and quantities of cards vary from those in the Core Set and Data Packs, the actual card abilities and text will remain the same.

Changes to Tournament Play

With thousands of cards now in the Netrunner universe, the incredible growth of the game has also created a card pool so large it has created a barrier to new players and in developing new strategies. Similar to other LCG and CCG formats, Netrunner Tournament Play has introduced a system refresh system that will mean older products will no longer be tournament legal as new cards are introduced.

For Netrunner Standard Play, five to seven cycles of Data Packs will be the limit to what is now legal. Whenever an eighth cycle would be added to the standard pool, the two oldest cycles are rotated out of Standard Play.

The new changes to legal play take effect October 1st. Effective October 1st tournament play will consist of the new Revised Core Set and the following expansions:

  • Creation and Control
  • Honor and Profit
  • Order and Chaos
  • Data and Destiny
  • Terminal Directive (player cards only)
  • Lunar Cycle Data Packs
  • SanSan Cycle Data Packs
  • Mumbad Cycle Data Packs
  • Flashpoint Cycle Data Packs
  • Red Sand Cycle Data Pack

5 Years of Running

Android: Netrunner the Card Game has only been around for the past 5 years, released in 2012. While a reimplementation of the original 1996 Netrunner game by Richard Garfield, the 2012 edition proved much more popular. Award for the new game included:

The freely available app from Renegade Game Studios™ and Dire Wolf Digital now includes bonus game content for the hit game Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.

Clank! fans who download the free Renegade Game Studios Companion App will enjoy “Mini-Quests” that add even more excitement and replayability to the game. An official solo play mode also allows individual players to enjoy the game on their own.

The app launched last year with support for FUSE by adding a free thematic 10-minute timer with a taunting voice-over to enhance the player’s experience. The Clank! addition to the app is also a free, optional add-on.

Dire Wolf Digital also created the acclaimed digital version of Lanterns: The Harvest Festival which is a separate, full game app available for iOS and Android.

You can find the Renegade Game Studios Companion App free for download on iOS and Google Play.

It’s kind of funny that a game known more for its amazing production values than its gameplay has made the way to a medium in which cardboard doesn’t exist. How do you recreate the utter coolness of Colt Express‘ 3D train on a 2D touchscreen? Turns out Asmodee can do it pretty well, as the newly released digital version of Colt Express looks downright amazing.

That’s right, Colt Express, the 2015 SdJ winner was released for iOS, Android, and PC today. It includes online multiplayer for maximum chaos, but it also has a single-player story mode with a 30 mission campaign. Buried within the campaign are digital-only variants to unlock which will mix up what you know about Colt Express, and you might even find a variant in online multiplayer mode as well.

If you haven’t played Colt Express, it’s a programmed movement game in which each player plays a card to a central pile. Some of the cards are face up so you can see what the other players are planning, but some are face down and these tend to screw up your best laid plans. Once all cards are played, the pile is picked up and flipped over and revealed card-by-card, and now the actions are played out on the aforementioned 3D train. It’s a chaotic, yet incredibly fun, mess. Don’t sign up if you’re looking for a deep strategic or tactical experience.

Colt Express is available right now for iOS Universal, Android, and PC via Steam. It’s $7 on mobile and $10 for PC.

cthulhu ios

The fan-favorite Cthulhu Realms is coming to mobile due to the fantastic work of the same people that brought Star Realms to the digital scene. Cthulhu Realms is a deck building competitive game where players use conjuring power as currency to buy new cards and play minions and locations in order to damage your opponents sanity. If you go insane, you’re out! The last player remaining, or the player with the most sanity when the market deck is depleted is the winner. The upcoming mobile app is available now through Google Play and will be coming to iOS App store soon and will feature a slew of awesome content and multiplayer options for the paid version.

Full App Features: Drive people insane across the globe. Play the AI on 2 difficulty settings. 8 additional campaign missions. Battle your friends face to face with Pass and Play. Play against many more opponents online. Challenge a friend to online Player v Player combat.

Since Cthulhu Realms is mechanically very similar to Star Realms, which has seen impressive popularity on digital platforms, this newest game-to-application entry has a lot of experience behind it to be a worthwhile download. That experience, I expect, will come in the form of consistent patches and bug fixes, a very stable online environment, and a very challenging single-player experience you wouldn’t get from the physical version. Check it out on your favorite app store soon!
