AppStoreArcade - 90% - "I wish that there were more hours in the day so I could play more Combat Monsters."

There are many different races of Combat Monsters, each with their own special horde of warriors, mages, archers and artillery. Each race has a racial bonus that has a big effect on how you round out your deck, so plan well - infinite strategic choices await.

In a true RPG style, every Combat Monster has a basic attack move and most of them also have an additional activated special ability, along with various power and defence stats that can be modified by equipping and armouring and playing runes and spells.

terrible absolutely abhorrent

If I could give lower I would

This games multiplayer has got to be the absolute worst I spend 4 hours trying to play with my friend and we cannot join

Cute and Challenging!


Simple rules, yet plenty of synergy between hero, monsters, and the board, creates interesting decisions! Definitely a lot of choices to be made during play and when deck building. Has delicious, "I should have done this instead" post turn angst. That's a sure indicator this game requires skill to play well.

Plays a bit like Summoner Wars or Neuroshima Hex; both are excellent tactical-board-card-games. With Combat Monsters, making the most of the board and exploiting positioning are when the game is at its best. Two warrior decks mindlessly bashing away at each other is the game at its dullest.

Spending more money is definitely an advantage, but like Major League Baseball, that doesn't ensure success. You can beat more expensive decks through clever play. Spunky competitive sports-type underdogs will love it. People who feel the Astros should just forfeit when they play the Yankees should look elsewhere! :D
