***Valley of the Ancients Expansion Now Available!**

Unlock the Secrets of Alosya...
For centuries, the valley of Alosya has remained hidden from the rest of Vigil. Guarded by treacherous mountains, the valley cradled an ancient civilization that rose and fell, cut off entirely from the outside world. In the absence of the gods, the people of Alosya worshipped the forces that ruled the world around them - life and death. They built two temples that focused and harnessed those energies, and revered the journey between the two.

Conceived and designed by three Magic: The Gathering tournament champions, Ascension will provide hours of engaging and strategic game play for enthusiast and experienced gamers alike.

A good solid deck building game

I felt the need to pop on and leave a review - I understand that, at some point, other people have had issues but perhaps those issues have been dealt with (I certainly haven't stumbled upon anything game breaking) and it would be a shame for you to miss out because of the bad reviews. It's slick, simple to pick up and a solid card game offering.

Someone complained that you can't keep your deck and you start off weak - that's because it's a deck building game not a collectible card game... The difference is that you build your deck within each game - this means you have to alter your strategy to build with the cards on offer.

I really like it but it's a shame that the online games are empty - I can only imagine it's because of the bad reviews....

A Great Game Almost Ruined

Ascension is a fantastic game, and the iOS app has been one of my favourites. I have played it frequently, and I've purchased every expansion until now. The latest release (1.14.2) has fixed quite a lot of defects, and the game is fairly playable on iOS 10, although there problems with cards disappearing when moved. On iOS 9 it remains almost unusable. It refuses to run at all on one of our iOS 9 devices, and crashes frequently on the other. Still recommend that you avoid this app until a more stable version is released.

Could be a great game. It's not as no opportunity to build a deck; cards are completely random so cannot plan ahead; monsters appear early in game so you build your deck for that then peter out so all is left are constructs which you can't afford as your deck is skewed. Also the AI is very difficult to beat as (dare I say it?) there does seem to be some bias when playing... Amazing how often it turns cards over in the centre that he can afford and needs....

Found it fun when learning to play it but once you want a greater challenge just becomes frustrating......
