There´s not that many card games that can take on “Magic the Gathering“, that´s for sure. But there has been quite a few devs that has tried to top Magic, very few has been successful in the process though.
Art Castle and Play Asia however, they might have created a card game that could change all that. Because their fast-paced real-time card game “Trouble With Robots“, has even been praised by well-known game designer´s such as Richard Garfield (Magic: The Gathering, King Of Tokyo).
In fact, this is what Garfield had to say about “Trouble With Robots”:
“It is terrific to be able to play Trouble With Robots again – it is overdue for iOS. It surprised me that it still feels unlike anything else I have played, I would have expected some other game developers to use this obviously good game formula to make a bunch of exciting new games. I hope that it gets the success and attention it deserves – and inspires the new games which >I< deserve!” – Richard Garfield, Game Designer
And one more thing, “Trouble With Robots” has ZERO annoying in-app purchases. And you don´t have to trade your money for magic boosts either.
With that said, game on people!
