Just by looking at the picture of Spellstone – another free Google Play game – you can tell that this is an action-oriented game and it is. Yet a surprise awaits you when you download and run this app for the first time.
The thing is that Spellstone is not a game where the action takes place in real time. Instead you will be battling the forces of evil with cards like in other such games that we reviewed recently with Card Crawl being one of them. The app takes you to some fantasy island where adventurers have discovered new treasures and sources of power but also new and powerful evil that will pose a threat to you. It is up to you to find out what this evil is and where it comes from and defeat it – but this won’t be easy!
The gameplay of Spellstone is nothing special but there’s a nice tutorial in the game that will show you how to play it. Basically you will be given cards with heroes on them and you must place them on the screen of your Android display in order to fight your enemy. You have to plan how you will put the cards because some of them come with a delay during which the card cannot do a thing so Spellstone requires some strategy skills from you. Your enemy will put cards as well and the fight will begin. Basically it comes down to this – you strike and then you get struck. Whoever loses all their life points dies and whoever remains wins the battle. Then you will have to choose new cards with new warriors on them and continue the mission you are on until you discover everything Spellstone has in store for you! Needless to say Spellstone comes with 2D graphics only but cards do not require anything else – we are satisfied with what we saw.
Spellstone is a really nice game. It offers some card action, a nice story and then suspense since you do not know what comes next for you. In addition the app is 100 per cent free so what do you have to lose here?
Spellstone is right here on Google Play. Enjoy the game!
