Magic: Puzzle Quest
Magic: Puzzle Quest
I have a few friends who like this mobile game so I figured I would give it a shot! I really like Pokemon Shuffle and Puzzles and Dragons so this type of game seemed to fit pretty well within my range of Mobile Gaming.
If you already play Magic: the Gathering (the card game), then your learning curve should be next to nothing. If you don't, you want to learn, or you're a beginner then remember to arrange your cards in the order you want them to appear on the board and remember you'll keep drawing cards so you'll have to continue to do this through the entire game.
I didn't arrange my cards in this first game because I was trying to keep the video I recorded short. Swipe right on your planeswalker to arrange your cards. Swipe left to continue the game.
You'll begin with one planeswalker but may purchase all of them with in game currency. Essentially you draw and place your cards by matching tiles.
If you're good at Pokemon Shuffle, Puzzle & Dragons, or Marvel Puzzle Quest it's the same concept. You won't have any trouble. You just need to remember that in Magic it's possible to help the enemy.
You have different types of cards:
Use your best judgement. Personally I like to keep things in balance if possible.
Don't forget to login daily to collect your daily reward. It's always good to augment your deck. Collecting isn't the same as claiming. Claim your rewards in the vault.
Gamer Opinion: The game itself is beautifully made and there is enough effort put into the art that it doesn't detract from the overall experience. If you play the card game that this is based off of: Magic the Gathering then you know that the cards have very alluring artwork. Some mobile games lack in one of these areas: music, graphics, artwork, play-ability. This game checks off all of the necessary boxes for me but I haven't been playing long enough to rate on "play-ability" which, for me, basically means if the game attracts my attention enough day-in, day-out. What I really enjoy about these puzzle based games is how I can play one level and get off. Personally, I play these on the train when I am on my way to/from work.
Overall this is a nice alternative to it's offline counterpart specially if you don't have much time in your day to devote to one game.
