"Want to read me the cards?"

Reviewed by / Aug 20, 2013

A fantasy CCG

Openly influenced by Magic and many other fantasy role playing collectible card games (abbreviated FYI, fantasy RPG CCGs), Battlegrounds of Eldhelm main features are a not too complicated set of rules, easy to read cards and a direct approach with flashy combos but not too twisted strategies. Hand-drawn artwork is fine and always welcomed, and there's a step by step tutorial so you can learn the basics even if you haven't ever played a similar game before.

We found there weren't many available players at the moment of this review, but there were enough. This game is played on the cloud, so it needs constant connection to the Internet, a flaw it shares with all other CCGs for mobiles. If you don't want to battle other players online, there's also a cooperative mode so you can join forces against the AI.

If you prefer to go solo, there's a campaign you can enjoy on your own and master the three different decks (colors). This game is also cross-platform, so you can also play it from home. Lastly, although there are available in-app purchases to boost your progress, this game isn't as demanding or insistent as others.

Developer's original description available here
Battlegrounds of Eldhelm is an indie, online, free-to-play, dueling, collectible card game (CCG) and role playing game (RPG).

The game features:
+ Be a HERO (or a team of heroes) - as in all rpgs rise levels, distribute stat points, train skills and as in all ccgs collect cards and create decks.
+ Powerful card combination mechanics facilitating strategy - still there are over 200 cards.
+ Unique card discovery and collecting process (and other original stuff to the already crowded genre).
+ Duel for the ladder board, challenge your friends or join forces against a boss-like enemy or versus enemy guilds.
+ Crusade the campaign to be the ruler of the Eldhelm land and never be bored with the daily quests!
+ We are doing tournaments with awesome rewards at least once a month!
+ We are taking the balance and the freemium thing very seriously - play for free!

The available single-player modes are:
+ Campaign - unveil the story of Eldhelm
+ Daily quest
+ Custom versus A.I.

Five types of multi-player:
+ Arena - ranking pvp;
+ Challenge - custom ranking pvp via invite;
+ Slay the Beast - a cooperative mode against powerfull boss enemy;
+ Guilds - conquer the lands of Eldhelm or start a custom guild war;
+ Tournament - duels with direct elimination;

So you think Yu-Gi-Oh and Hearthstone are too easy?
MTG (Magic the Gathering) is too complex?
You like mmorpg, tccg and fantasy games?
Well Battlegrounds of Eldhelm is FOR YOU:
+ Three different races (Orcs, Elves and Humans) each containing different character classes (melee, ranged and casters) with completely different play styles;
+ Customization of the visual appearance of your hero;
+ A handy deck organization and creation tools - create, delete, modify decks without any limits;
+ All cards are kept in a stash and a deck is only a group - one card can be in as many decks as you like;
+ Tired of monsters and minions - here cards are spells, actions and abilities;
+ A true cross-platform experience - available for web-browser, as desktop application and as mobile apps for all major platforms;
+ Epic music and 3D graphics;
+ Translation in multiple languages;

Plenty of five star reviews:
★★★★★ "Awesome game!! The best strategy card trading game out there. And just keeps getting better everyday. Elf rulz!"
★★★★★ "Best CCG on Android!! Not only is it a fun game with strategic depth and great atmosphere ... Full Player vs Player and a really long AI campaign give hours and hours of exciting play. If you like games like Magic the Gathering or YuGiOh, give this game a try. It has one of the most unique card collecting mechanics I've ever seen in a card collecting game. You can also play this game on any desktop computer with your web browser in full screen. Check out the website. I can't recommend this game enough!!"
★★★★★ "Class At first glance, the game reminded Shadow Era, but it was much better. Good balance, a few versions of the game (against the AI, against another player and the campaign), an interesting mechanic, not extort money at every turn, and the graphics are good. Best of the tcg games tested by me."

Some other notes:
+ We are really sad about the media storage permission. We aim to run the game with as little permissions as possible, but as we are more than 50Mb now we need to use it according to the Google guidelines. You can be sure that our only intention is to deliver our great game to your device!
+ The game is entirely online (cloud based) and requires a low latency internet connection - a wi-fi or unlimited 3G/4G internet connection is advised.
+ Contact us from our web form http://support.eldhelm.com, via e-mail or through the in-game feedback form! We would love to hear from you!
+ Support and play indie games!

    I'm definitely in love with this game, I can't just stop playing it, the gameplay is awesome and I've just been lucky enough to draw a mythical card from the random deck which is a great way to find new cards and the ability to keep them is the best, I'm looking forward to improve my game as I continue growing up my levels, please add new cards, heroes customization, I'd like to create a male elf

    Great game. Clear tutorial and execellent tech support. It will be tough from levels 1 to ~12, so don't feel too discouraged if you get pwned by the comp at the start! Tip: try to build a collector deck centred around a solid combo or 2 that you can pull of 3ish times in a match - and save up your gold for packs! GLHF

    Nice idea, a cardgame with little nonsense around it. But extremely unbalanced and not competetive at all

    I just read the comments and they caught my attention, but what has me clicking the download button is that the dev. has replied to everyone with a complaint or suggestion. Keep up the good work sir, and I will continue to give your games a try
