If you’re a board/card game fan, then the iPad/iPhone has become a treasure trove of great gaming goodness. We’ve seen some truly excellent ports from huge hits like Ticket to Ride to lesser known titles like Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer.
That second title is worth noting because it’s probably the best port of a card game I’ve played on the iPad, and was ported by a company called Playdek. Why is all that worth noting? Cause they’ve just announced they’re bringing the combat heavy deck building game Nightfall to iOS in a few weeks. It’s a game we reviewed and enjoyed here on PGM and can’t wait to get it loaded onto our various devices of choice.
You may have heard about or played some of the other deckbuilding games out there like Dominion or the aforementioned Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer (both awesome BTW). What sort of sets Nightfall apart is the amount of aggressive interaction between players. It’s flat out combat here. Vampire and Werewolf and Monster combat.
Playdek has been killing it lately, and I’ll expect that trend to continue when they release Nightfall in a few weeks. Expect us to be talking about the title on the podcast!
Edit: We added a couple of new screenshots that came our way. Check ‘em out below!
