“A few bugs in it”

I just downloaded it (the app is free) and I would suggest that everyone do so as the price is right.

The game on the Iphone is a little bit buggy as of 12/4/12. Playing in the Arcade mode I had crashes after every match. I briefly watched the video but the actions of the opponent can be a little bit difficult to decipher. On occasion I would win/lose and not be sure why a stun occurred or why I won/lost.

I believe the point of the game is to simulate a match in a fighting game (like street fighter).

The graphics look good and the gameplay does have strategy. To make an attack you choose one card from a pool of actions (ex. retreat, advance, focus, sweep etc…) this card will have modifiers to range, power, and initiative, and you pair it with a card from the pool on the right that has a base range, power, and initiative.

To clarify, in the pool of the left are a number of partial moves, like sliding, or advancing, sweeping, and on the right are other partial moves, like shot, grab, or jab. A move you might construct would be advancing jab. advancing would provide 0 to initiative, +1 to power, and 0 to range, while also letting you move your character 1 or two spaces. The Jab part would give you +3 to initiative, +1 range, and +1 power. This hypothetical would result in a 3 initiative, 2 power, +1 range move where you could move forward 1 or 2 spaces before it resolved.

The player with the higher initiative total from the move constructed goes first and makes any applicable choices (moving 1 or 2 squares if a card gives the move that ability, retreating, etc…)

Be careful which actions you use right away as the actions you used will be on “cooldown” for two turns. This stops you from repeatedly doing one action and provides the strategy of saving a closing move for later etc…

Based on limited gameplay I am considering purchasing a physical copy. As for the app I am hopeful that the bugs will be fixed and that what seems like a fun game at a free price point will being working as intended. There are in game unlocks but I’ve had the game for one day and with the crashing I do not know how long the various unlocks will take.
