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.
It is heavily influenced by RPG games and borrows some mechanics and ideas. The result is a fascinating mixture of classic card collection game and RPG battles.
Play on your own in the single player campaign or duel other players for high scores. The available game modes are campaign, custom versus A.I. and three types of multiplayer - ranking, custom (challenge) and cooperative. Play for the ladder board, challenge your friends or join forces against a powerful boss like enemy. Crusade in the campaign to be the ruler of the Eldhelm land and never be bored with the daily quests!
Plenty of five star reviews, here are some:
★★★★★ "Awesome game!! The best strategy card game out there. And just keeps getting better everyday."
★★★★★ "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 Yu-Gi-Oh, give this game a try. It has one of the most unique card collecting mechanics I've ever seen in a collectible card 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 CCT tested me."
Battlegrounds of Eldhelm features epic music and 3D graphics, three unique races each containing different character classes with completely different play styles. The game has been translated up-to-date in multiple languages and is available for web-browser, Facebook and mobile devices.
