Lies of Astaroth self-identifies as a “free-to-play and highly addictive epic fantasy MMORPG card-battle hybrid.” There are over 100 characters, each of which is quite stunning to behold, especially during battle. The graphics are truly top of the line for games in this genre.
But this game isn’t just about collecting cards! There’s a big strategy element as well, with add-ons like runes and special skills making it even more challenging to balance your character classes.
The latest version of Lies of Astaroth is Version 1.2.0, which includes a number of interesting changes to the game. Some are good, like the ability to send extra energy to your friends and some bug fixes to boost performance. I like that you have the option to login/create an account, or just use a quick start to get playing faster.
One tweak that I’m kind of on the fence about is the fact that you need to reach Level 5 before you can chat. On the one hand, I get it: delaying chat weeds out noobs and trolls. But on the other hand, I feel like it delays the player’s entry into the community, which is kind of a bummer.
Long story short: if you love card battle games, this iOS CCG is a must-try title. The graphics are great, and there’s a good sense of community. Just make sure you have a strong network connection while the game is updating!
