Based on the universe of World of Warcraft, Hearthstone provides an immersive, competitive game in which you can play against other people using your deck and wits. With nine heroes to choose from and different play styles, there is plenty to explore.
Destroy the opponent ruthlessly!
Blizzard’s Hearthstone has been one of the dominant collectible card games for many years for many reasons.
The system is well designed and is easy to understand. The tutorial will set you up to play well, and you can have fun without knowing too much, unlike Magic the Gathering, which is difficult from the start. The deeper you get, the more you will learn about the game and see that there can be great depth to the game.
Overall, the combat is well done and balanced out. Even though there is card variability, strategies depend on which of the heroes you use, and each play style reaps similar reward in the long game.
Hearthstone is free to download, and it remains that way throughout. However, it takes a lot of grinding and time to be extremely successful without paying. If you use a budget, it is possible to have a single hero deck that you mainly use. To win and climb in the ladder without grinding on one deck requires a good deal of money.
Where can you run this program?
This application is available on iOS 9.0 and later.
Is there a better alternative?
No, there are no options while there are good competitors. Gwent is an option, but it isn’t as solid as Hearthstone. Magic the Gathering is extremely complex to understand, and Elder Scrolls: Legends is not as appealing graphically.
In all, this app is a solid choice for a card collector game. Overall, it has a great battle system, with a good free-to-play mechanism, and fun strategies to try out. There is little to dissuade you from getting it.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you enjoy this style of gaming, this application is a must have.
