History Attacks mixes the essence of collectible card games, about gathering all the possible cards of a collection, every one with its own stats and perks, and the well-known list of poker hands. There's also an original storyline about a time machine warding all mankind's lore and en evil villain stealing the data kept in there. Guess who will save the day?
Every time you must battle an enemy you'll be given a hand of five cards and you have to decide which hold and which discard. The higher the hand is, the more damage inflicts. Characters (Cleopatra, Napoleon, Caesar...) react to certain hands and cast special attacks.
We'd like it more if animations were better and gameplay was easier to predict, because at this moment we should recommend to have paper and pen next to your phone to known which hand fits who. Battles feel too static, too, in the end making of this game something interesting and original, full of potential, but otherwise quite repetitive and eventually boring.
