***“It’s a goofy theme with fun art and high replayability, but beneath that veneer of casual play is a great middle weight card game that lives on the line between hardcore gamer and casual enjoyment.” —Jonathan Bolding “The Escapist”
***“Smash Up is smashing good fun, especially among gamers who can relax, revel in the sheer audacity of some stupid-good plays, and aren’t ashamed to let loose and let their geek flags fly.” —Dice Hate Me
Smash Up is an award-winning shufflebuilding card game designed by Paul Peterson, now available in a beautiful digital adaptation so you can play on the go with friends all over the world. In Smash Up, players draft two faction decks from their choice of pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them to create a hybrid team that is a force to be reckoned with!
A SPECIAL GAME EXPERIENCE!
The ""shufflebuilding"" game Smash Up starts with a simple premise: Take the twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more Bases than your opponents! Each faction brings a different game mechanism into play – pirates move cards, zombies bring cards back from the discard pile, dinosaurs have huge power – and every combination of factions brings a different play experience.
During play, Base cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are in play. Combine wisely your characters and actions' cards to obtain the most power! You attempt to have the most power on the Base from your minions when the Base is smashed. Sounds easy?
How easy is it when an opponent's Alien-Ninja decides to Beam Up your minions to other Bases - flat out Assassinate them? What about when the Pirate-Dinosaur player Full Sails in and releases King Rex to stomp your minions into the ground, or when the Wizard-Zombies use their Mystic Power to create an Outbreak, suddenly flooding minions onto the Base from the discard pile? Or what if you faced a Zombie-Dinosaur player instead and he created an Outbreak of massive beasts all at once?!?
SCORE THE 15 NECESSARY POINTS & WIN THE GAME!
When a Base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points. Fourth place? Sorry, bro – try harder next time.
With nine different factions, Smash Up includes dozens of combinations to try. Pirate-Aliens play different than Ninja-Aliens, for instance. Which will you use to smash up your opponents?
And did we mention the dinosaurs have laser beams?

What's New in Version 1.08.4
The black screen issue is now fixed on iOS 10 & 11. A hotfix for iOS 8 & 9 is coming very soon. We added 3 new features you asked for:
- Card popups are bigger
- House rules of unique factions can be selected in both local play and online. There is also the option for unique and random factions (this was added as a pre-emptive decision incase players wanted this option)
- Infinite timeout option on online games
Our sincere apologies for this issue.
More updates to come soon.
We take your feedback very seriously!
Changes need to be made
The interface needs an overhaul. Expanding your hand so all cards can be both seen and easily picked would be nice. Easily seeing what's on a base would be nice too. Finally, I think an undo button would be a great addition (disabled when a card would be drawn, etc).
FIXED: While it's not necessary, I would want to disable the ability for users/ai to choose the same faction.
Oh and to reviewers who are saying how great it is and the rest of us are whiners, we aren't saying it's completely unplayable. We're saying we want it to be more easily played so it's not as frustrating to play...it's supposed to be fun, remember?
Wait awhile until they get the kinks out of this one
Buggy. The app is currently stuck on “After this base score, the winner looks at the top three cards of the base deck...” I’ve tapped everything on the screen, but nothing happens.
Also, the horizontal ticker and vertical text scrolling on cards is really annoying. There’s no reason the text size can’t be adjusted to fit the size allotted for it.
Lastly, it is difficult to select a card to play from your hand. I have to move my finger back and forth by millimeters to try and get the correct card highlighted. Frequently it skips from the card just before to the card just after.
Good not great
I love Smash Up. The app is ok, but the UI is pretty annoying and difficult to use. It's hard to select cards, and you have to hold down each card in order to read it. Looking forward to improvements.
Edit: Thank you for fixing the black screen glitch! +1 star :)
