While many games see their first release on iOS, Android users will get first access to the Star Realms deck-building game through their mobile devices. Star Realms is a small, 2 player deck-building game that quickly gained popularity for being a well laid-out game that plays quickly and is compact. The co-creator of the game, Rob Dougherty, also worked on the Ascension deck-building game and became the CEO of White Wizard Games. Now, players will be able to play anywhere they can take their mobile devices. Dougherty is excited about the game coming to a digital format, and says :
“I’m super excited about this digital release…We can’t keep the physical game in stock. Nearly everyone we show the game to wants to buy it, and we just can’t print it fast enough to keep up. Now, with the digital game, everyone will get to play without worrying about us being sold out.”
Star Realms base game is a free download and gives you access to six campaigns and lets you play against the AI. You can pay for more content which gets you more difficulty versions of AI’s and so much more. Here is a complete list of the features you’ll find with the free and paid versions of the game :
• Addictive Deckbuilding Game with Player VS Player Combat.
• Tutorial teaches you to play in minutes.
• 6 mission campaign mode.
• Stunning visuals.
• Play VS the AI.
Full Game Additional Features
• Battle friends face to face with Pass and Play.
• Play the AI on 3 different difficulty settings.
• Online play with global rankings.
• 9 additional campaign missions.
• Challenge a friend online.
The paid version of Star Realms is $4.99 and features the above, and looks like a great deal. Considering that the game disappears from shelves quickly, a $4.99 price for a full version of Star Realms that you can take anywhere with you looks like a great deal to me. I’ve already had a chance to play with the free version and hope to pick up the full very soon to give our readers a detailed review of the digital version.
