"No game can be won without pawns"

An outstanding fantasy tactics game

Tactical games, called sometimes "tactics" because of the Tactics Ogre series so popular in the mid 90s, march to the beat of their own drum in mobile gaming and must be treated as a special case when it comes to mobile gaming, because they are so few that every time a new title is released it deserves all our attention. Fortunately, Rubicon's Combat Monster won't disappoint any fan of the genre.

Combat Monsters has everything you would like it had. 3D polygonal graphics and characters, beautifully detailed yet with a retro feel (those werewolf archers are great!) are truly awesome, and gameplay is second to none. In fact, since the very first stages in the campaign mode you realize it's an inexhaustible game that allows many combinations and strategies. There's an exhaustive campaign mode (pity there isn't a storyline) and you can play asynchronous multiplayer matches online.

The three difficulty levels allow all kind of players, from newcomers to hardcore strategists. The amount of monsters and skills, yet the easy rules make of this game, we can say in advance, a likely candidate for the game of the year award in the strategy category. Lastly, although there are in-app purchases to get currency, this game can be eternally played for free if you're patient enough.

As a footnote, as it reminds of Star Wars Dejarik, will it be a sci-fi version in the future?

Developer's original description available here
Not your everyday monsters, these. Combat Monsters follow your every command, smashing all that come before them - and the messier the better!

We've married up the best bits of CCG games - the deck constructing, with the best bits of RPG games - the fighting, to bring you a true evolution in fantasy card gaming.

Plan your strategy, pick your monsters and equipment. Cast magical spells to turn the tables on your foes, then play a timely rune to keep them turned.

    The gameplay is great but the recent updates do more harm than good (crashes, login issues). Would like to see more single player quests or team battles (comp ally vs multiple computer opponents) or free for all where computer fights each other and you.

    Update reset my account and now tells me that my account doesn't exist. Put money into this game but I guess they are keeping that.

    Back to 1 star. Wasted money on this game just for it to crash constantly right after. Would be an game, but crashes too often and I have to redo levels. Please fix.
