A Hearthstone Deck-Building Guide

Yesterday Touch Arcade posted a standard beginners guide for Hearthstone, a fantastic Magic: The Gathering-like card game that has just come to the iPhone thanks to a universal update to its iPad app. Today TA has posted a beginner’s guide to deck-building, which is an essential part of the Hearthstone experience. Read it here.

Even if you are willing to splurge and get all kinds of fancy Legendaries, if you don’t know how to use them in the correct deck, you’ll simply have expensive, but losing, decks.The main take from this guide is a relatively simple one: to use Ken Nagle’s, aMagic the Gathering designer, axiom, “Play good decks, not good cards.” When you are putting cards together, you should be thinking about the deck as one unit consisting of smaller parts rather than a collection of cards put together just because individually the cards look strong. Deck-building is about deciding on a strategy and making a deck that adheres to that. Don’t be afraid to leave out a new, fancy card you just got if you can’t find a good reason to fit it in the deck.

Heartbeats Review: Intriguingly Puzzling

If you like your puzzle games to be cryptic and mysterious, you’ve come to the right place: Heartbeats is just that. It’s not a long game, but it’s free to download, with a $0.99 IAP to unlock the full game. Jennifer Allen over at 148Apps found it worthwhile, giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars in her review.

For free, you’re given three levels. These provide a good basis to what to expect for the rest. While I’ll dodge obvious spoilers, they work well in getting you to think laterally and a little outside of the box to decipher. A mixture of riddles and visual clues, it’s fun to try to figure out what’s next. Whether you’re piecing together a key from letters or figuring out what a riddle is asking you to do, it’s interesting stuff. In each case, the game controls well, enticing you into exploring what can be accomplished through experimentation. Remember that when you’re playing – it really is important!

    Terra Battle Getting Crossover With The Last Story

    Hironobu Sakaguchi’s puzzle RPG Terra Battle is getting a crossover with another Hironobu Sakaguchi game: The Last Story, which appeared on the Wii in 2011. There’s no word yet on how the properties will mix – an update for Terra Battle seems likelier than a whole new game – but we’ll find out more after a Japanese livestream presentation scheduled for April 23.

    Amazon App Store Offers Hearthstone Deals

    Getting ready to download Hearthstone onto your Android-based phone? Back up. The Amazon App Store is running a promotion by giving away Amazon Coins with certain in-app purchases. In fact, Amazon has a page dedicated to Hearthstone deals.

    You get 30 percent of your expenditure back in Amazon Coins so that you can put them towards more in-game purchases, basically.

    What this means is that, if you’re spending money in the game anyway, doing it through the Amazon App Store gets you more Card Packs.

    The example we were given by Amazon is this: if you spend $90 then you get 106 packs on the Amazon App Store, whereas you’d only get 70 packs for the same price on Google Play.

    Ys Chronicles 1 Coming to iOS and Android

    Ys is a long-lived action RPG series, but Western audiences never embraced it as readily as Eastern audiences. We’re getting another chance to show Ys some love with Ys Chronicles 1, a mobile remake of the series’ first episode. If you’re not familiar with Ys, it’ll be a perfect place to start. No word yet on when the game will hit iOS and Android, but we do have a lovely-looking story trailer.

    Devious Dungeon 2 Review: A Brash, Brilliant Platformer

    Ravenous Games make tons of side-scrolling action platformers. It’s kind of their thing. But Devious Dungeon 2 is special, thanks in part to its three characters you can choose to play as. From Pocket Gamer’s 9 out of 10 review:

    The levels are tight and cleverly paced, and boss battles punctuate the chunks of the castle you’re trying to invade. There’s a decent level of challenge here, as you’d expect from Ravenous, and earning cash to buy new equipment quickly becomes habit-forming.

    The Upcoming Lara Croft: Relic Run is Basically Temple Run with Tomb Raider

    Temple Run borrows shamelessly from Indiana Jones, and the upcoming game Lara Croft: Relic Run borrows shamelessly from Temple Run. The game is out now in the Netherlands, but you can expect a U.S. release before too long.

    The game seems to hit a lot of the notes of other endless runners, and the Temple Run [Free] comparisons are inevitable, because that game is the granddaddy of all vaguely Indiana-Jones-inspired endless runners at this point. This one might be fun in its own right, some endless runners are still fun despite being derivative. But we’ll be curious to see if this one turns out to be fun and original, somehow. Until then, it sounds like you should consult our one-size-fits-all review. At least this one has a T-Rex?
