Great game, great value
Penny Arcade is a deck building game, similar to Ascension but more similar to Dominion. I've been waiting for a game like this on IOS for a long time and it absolutely does not disappoint. The interface is slick, the AI puts up a good fight and the game itself is very good. Unfortunately while the selection of cards is pretty good they do repeat quite quickly so I really hope the Rumble in the Ry'leh expansion will come soon as an in app purchase. For the price though I'd say it's one of the best deals in the app store.
Oh and as a side note another review said it was a battery killer, as a counterpoint I played 2 games and my battery level hadn't dropped even 1%
Good but could be better
I'll start by saying I've been a PA fan for years & never missed a comic (so all my following comments are in good faith & in no way am I ripping into the game) but I've been playing it non-stop since I downloaded it & there are a few things I'd like to see addressed...
1) this game KILLS your battery, even playing 1 quick game against easy AI can drop you 10-15% so make sure you've got plenty in the tank!
2) more bosses & stacks for variety, can get a bit repetitive even with the randomiser on (if the game was free I'd pay for them as in-app but as it's a paid app, I think it should be a free update)
3) you can't view the achievements in-app, you have to exit the game and go through the GC app to see what you've unlocked & still have to get
4) more achievements! Only took me 2-3 games to get all but the hardest 2 (30 tokens/power in a hand)
I love this game and have got many of my friends hooked too it. Ended up buying the real game and still loving it.
Please consider releasing the expansion!
