The Latest Magic: The Gathering Game Is A Decent Card-Based Tower Defense

The Latest Magic: The Gathering Game Is A Decent Card-Based Tower Defense

If you want a pure Magic: The Gathering video game experience,

stick with Arena . Netmarble’s Magic: Manastrike, out now for iOS and Android, has two players dropping card-based creatures and spells into a two-lane battlefield in order to destroy their opponent’s towers. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it.

Call it tower defense or tower offense or just plain strategy, this popular...

Apple Arcade Is Mobile Gaming Without All The Bullshit

Apple Arcade Is Mobile Gaming Without All The Bullshit

Entering into the busiest video game season of the year, we didn’t exactly need Apple Arcade, nor did we really want it, given Apple’s mediocre stewardship of video games for the past decade.

The New Game From Journey’s Creators Feels Like A Dream

At least, I think that’s what’s going on in ThatGameCompany’s first new game in seven years. It’s abstract.

Out now on iOS and coming eventually to Android, Sky: Children of the Light feels like an...
