Specially designed for all kinds of fans of the adventures of Finn and Jake, Card Wars - Adventure Time takes the popular game from the homonym chapter of the series into mobile platforms. Developed by Kung Fu Factory, and published for D3 to download on mobile devices, the game features the usual style brought from the original series with the popular characters from the Land of Ooo. The game requires being online for running it on your mobile phone.
If you have ever seen the TV show you may know that there is really very little needed to make a big fuss out of nothing, and so Card Wars is started. Even if it looks just like an innocent card game it is not so simple for Jake, as soon as he wants to be crowned as the cool guy defeating all other guys in the Land of Ooo. Fighting against all kinds of characters like Finn, the Earl of Lemongrab, Princess Bubblegum, lady Raincorn, Ice King and even Marceline the vampire queen has never been as fun up until this moment.

The technical part of Card Wars - Adventure Time is focused mostly on the game board, showing all the creatures we can summon from our hands in a holographic way. The artwork is really similar to what we have watched from the TV show, and that is why this title should be considered a must-have game for all the fans of the series. The characters look incredible in 3D, and the sound aspect resembles those from BMO games in the series that makes it a good title to download.
I floop the pig
The game starts putting your field cards on the board. This will determine the kind of creature you can use on that tile, from a corn-based creature to swamp units like the Wandering Bald Man or other troops based on the Adventure Time series. Each creature has basic values such as health points, attack and defense, that are necessary to destroy the enemy’s creatures, and their placement on the board costs magic points that regenerate at the beginning of a turn. Additionally they count with an extra ability, which can only be triggered by flopping the card and making it disable that turn. When you have defeated the creature of a tile you can attack the player’s health points, the main objective of the game.
Unlike other card games, the game flow won’t only depend on the base stats of your creatures; you should have in mind the roulette for each action, both attack and defense. Tapping on the right section of the roulette, that is the green part, you may block most of the damage that you were dealt or even make critical hits depending on the side you get, the attack or the defense, both with different roulette ratios and risks. However you have to take care, since if you fail and fall on the red side you can take full damage and make your attack miss, so timing is important too and taking a risk can be fun.
As you progress through the story, you will be able to get more free cards from different chests, but that is not the only way to get new creatures and buildings, you can also combine two cards to craft a new one. This crafting feature allows you to enhance your personal deck with some weak creatures turned into dangerous units. The bad part comes once you advance on the game and new battles require more and more hearts, which can be bought with gems, the in-app currency. This energy based gameplay sometimes ruins the game, making you wait until you have regenerated enough hearts to play again, or bought online gems in exchange.

Welcome to Ooo where is cool to duel in Card Wars

When I first watched the chapter from the series I really wanted to join Finn and Jake in that awesome card game, and there it is! Card Wars – Adventure Time is the best approach of the original card game from the series that you would ever have in a mobile system. The graphic aspect is really similar to the original series. Almost all the main characters are present during the game in different stages, from Marceline to Ice King and even the Earl of Lemongrab with his unacceptable screams.
The game’s proposal is similar to other card games, but with more active role for the player since the damage will be decided thanks to a rolling roulette that the player must stop tapping on it. The cardboard is composed by tiles for creatures and tiles for lands. Each creature tile has a determined type which determines the cards you can set on it. Once you have played and practiced enough, you can create your own deck with the combinations you want and even craft your own cards with disposing those that you won’t need anymore. Be the coolest guy on the land of Ooo beating all its inhabitants.
- A good and balanced card gameplay
- Nice graphic aspect similar to the original TV show
- I don’t like the energy system
