"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.

    Kind of like a mobile version of Battleforge if you have ever played that...probably my all time favorite game. This is exactly what I was looking for...a perfect combo of CCG, RPG, and strategy. Only wish there were notifications for my turn in asynchronous multiplayer mode.
