Amazing deck building app port

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer is an amazing deck building game where 2-4 players build decks on the fly out of some basic starting cards and then whatever cards are revealed in the center. The app is an amazing port of the board game and speeds up gameplay drastically. I have played this game for countless hours using the online features to find others online to play against. The tutorial is pretty decent in explaining the main fame but once you start buying expansions (if you love it like I do you definitely will be) there is little to no explanation of how they work. That being said a simple online tutorial or manual about the set clears everything up and you'll be right back on top of your game. Stoneblade also does a great job of making each new set available on the app not too long after the sets are released in board game format. All in all its an amazing game and the online features are fantastic. Finding a group gets a little difficult sometimes but it's usually not very hard. Be wary though, no one is going to take it easy on you but you'll eventually learn and start having victories of your own. I can honestly say that I have become an amazing ascension player thanks to this app and will continue playing as more sets come out for it.

Best deck building game I've played

This is a great deal, especially for 99 cents. The gameplay itself is amazing, the only issues I have are with the iOS implementation.

The async multiplayer is a little wonky. It seems needlessly complicated and doesn't always notify me when it's my turn. The honor pool changes in offline mode are awesome, but I'd like it if you could also do it in online games against your game center friends.

I'd also like to see a campaign mode. The AI is really good, but i think playing alone is less fun without an overall goal.

Love this game.

I recently got into deck building games. I figured I would try this since it was free. I quickly picked up all expansions and really, really enjoy it. I enjoy it so much, that the physical game is now on my list.

Seriously, grab is game now.

As a wish list, I wish, when playing the computer you could set it to endless points and keep playing. It seems like the game always ends JUST before things get really interesting.
