If you are the type of person who loves card games the most, here’s our 7 popular mobile card games for you to get going on your phone.
Earthcore: Shattered Elements
There is a lot that you will love in this card-battling mobile game developed by Tequila Games. The simple yet refreshing game of trading card genre is set in an epic high fantasy setting with various gameplay strategies. It comes in a basic rock-paper-scissors approach in which water cards beat fire cards, fire cards beat earth cards, and earth cards beat water cards. Each card has a risk value that makes you lose a head-to-head battle rather than having a set attack or defence. The voice-acting and sound effects complemented with graphics of the game adds to a great experience of the game and makes winning feel more special. The game is available for free on iOS and Android devices.
This simple and repetitive game is based on the theme of what the Dungeons and Dragons universe plays instead of solitaire. This game is played by shuffling and throwing 54 cards at you in sets of four. The cards will be either gold, deadly enemies, or the weapons, spells, and potions and the goal of the player is to win over all the enemies in the deck using the other cards, all that while accumulating as much gold as possible. As you win a game, you will get the gold which can be used to buy powerful new cards for future games. You can take up the extra challenge by finishing all the game’s quests which can be won with spells that combine luck and cleverness. The game is available for playing on iOS and Android.
Age Of Rivals
The strategy card game developed by Roboto games takes its inspiration from the physical design but is very much digital. Rather than deck building, this game, that lasts for just ten minutes, engages the player to draft the five phases repeated across four rounds. The simple and minimalist game offers an experience full of flair as you draft cards based around specific themes, and build your board along with the game. Worth having a go at!
This game, developed by Arnold Rauers, has been popular among card game enthusiasts. Miracle Merchant is the most recent release, among many other card games, from the developer. The game engages the player to craft potions in the need of a remedy or other liquid solution. Miracle Merchant is solitaire card-gaming at its finest in which you become the apprentice of a master alchemist who creates potions for thirsty customers. You have to mix and combine various ingredient cards to create powerful potions based on the needs of your customers. The game is available for download on Android and iOS devices.
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer
This is one of the easiest and masterfully designed deck-building games. The game engages you in putting together a powerful deck of cards by buying them from a central market on each turn. The fast-paced gaming app lets you play more efficiently than the physical card game. The game offers a fantastic online experience with an endless stream of card set expansions. The game is set in a modestly corny, early era D&D sword-and-sorcery aesthetic. The game is available for free on Android and iOS devices, however, expansions are a must, and range from $6.99 to $0.99.
This deck-building, rogue-like game, developed by Slothwerks, allows you to choose your class from one of four unique adventurers, and go on for a deck consisting of some basic attack cards. You can add powerful new cards to your deck during the adventure. The game has a successful showdown against the aptly-named Uberlich in its happier session. Despite the fun, artsy and breezy interface of the game the ultimate battle to the four starting characters is challenging. The game which is efficiently developed post-release and even has several major content expansions is available on both Android and iOS devices.
Card City Nights
Although the game, developed by Ludocity, is a bit cheeky with idiosyncratic characters, it is refreshing with consistent deadpan humour. The player progresses in the game by beating certain keystone characters to unlock their signature, ultra-powerful cards. The effects of the card match the character’s personality. There is an extremely cool correspondence between the writing, characterisation, and deck archetypes of the game. Allows an experience that can be easily enjoyed and binged, the game is available on both Android and iOS devices.
