Cards, the Universe and Everything is an excellent mixture of gaming and education that builds upon the foundation created in Avid Games previous title ‘Card Explorer’ in every conceivable way. Educational games have a reputation for being hit and miss in terms of quality, and some have a questionable level of content that could be considered useful to growing minds. Luckily, the team at Avid Games seem to have hit the perfect balance with this title.
Another collectable card game and RPG hybrid hitting the mobile market isn’t normally something to get excited about. At this point the Android and iStores are flooded with titles attempting to successfully do just that and few of them manage to bring anything new or original to the table. Spellstone, the product of a group known as Synapse from Kongregate, manages to exceed all expectations.
Card games fused with roleplaying mechanics work extremely well. There are a multitude of titles already out there such as ‘SoulSpark: Battlecards’ and ‘Spellstone’ to attest to that fact. Few of them however attempt to craft a monster catching and dungeon building mechanic into their structure and this is where Dungeon Marauders finds its niche.
