Combat Monsters

By Rubicon

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


14 man-years in the making by a BAFTA nominated studio, Combat Monsters takes the card battle genre to new heights.

We've married up the best bits of CCG games - the deck building and strategizing, with the best bits of RPG games - the fighting, to bring you a genuine evolution in fantasy card gaming.

▶ AppsZoom - 91% - "An outstanding fantasy tactics game"

Build your dream battle deck from the many hundreds of available cards, pick a hero and enter the arena. Deploy your monsters to good advantage, then buff them with magical spells and equipment. Maneuvre and fight, and when the time is right overwhelm your hapless foes for glorious victory!

▶ "Magic: The Gathering meets Battle Chess" -

Core card types are monsters, equipment (weapons, shields, etc.), spells (instant effects) and runes (permanent effects). Timely deployment of cool combos can turn a battle at any moment.

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

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 armoring and playing runes and spells.

▶ PixelVolt - 90% - "Amazing"

Want single player? We got you covered with a massive campaign. Play against a variety of AI opponents who are only too happy to throw all sorts of nastiness your way, at ever increasing difficulty levels.

When you've finished that, there is an endlessly replayable skirmish mode, where you can battle up to five computer opponents at once. Or you can at least try...!

▶ GameWoof - 90% - "Rubicon knocks it out of the park again with this title."

Want multiplayer? We got you covered there too, with both realtime and asynchronous play options. Meet up online and smash the world. A full matchmaking system keeps it fair and provides a perfect level of challenge for all ability levels and collection sizes.

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

Coming soon in the next free update: Card trading and yet more new cards.

NB: Additional cards are accrued at a good pace, but there are iap's available to buy extra booster packs even faster. This game is not designed to hoover your wallet like some others though, and can be completed without spending money or waiting for artificial delays.

The term we use is "pay what you want". It's free to put that statement to the test, so please check it out?

1 star. Gameplay is way too slow. You'll be waiting forever for the ai to finish its turn. They need to add a way to speed up gameplay. It's fun for a while but then you will hit a brick wall and must pay $ for rubicons for better cards because without them you will not be able to progress. You can't even grind for rubicons as there is no way to. Also, the ai will always have the exact cards needed to beat you and it's too much of a coincidence that they would get the cards at the exact time needed. DELETED
