Evoker: Magic Card Game (TCG)

Evoker: Magic Card Game (TCG)

A bright new addition to your favorite TCG list out there

Trading-Card-Games (TCGs), also called Collectible/Customizable-Card-Games (CCGs), took its first leap back in the 90s. The hype that “Magic: The Gathering” initiated on our generation seems to continue up until now. One testament to this is Evoker: Magic Card Game, a TCG-based fantasy game developed by flaregames (makers of Royal Revolt, Throne Wars) and released in 2014. The game was initially listed for the Android platform but is now available for iOS devices at the Appstore as well (free to download with in-app purchases). With more than a million downloads to-date from Google Playstore alone, I’m pretty sure you’ll see the point on why it is referred to as a “hype”.

The game is centered on building your line-up of cards, five cards to be precise. These five cards at hand are the only pawns you are able to fight with per match. Each card you pick will have its respective Health Points, Attack Power, Passive Ability, and Direction/s of attack. The mechanics of the match is simple. Like other TCGs, your goal is to drain your opponent’s health points in order to win. During which your line-up of cards, along with your strategy of arrangement and their respective stats, will influence the outcome of the match.

A constant reward of cards will be given when winning matches. Although it may seem that there is no limit to the cards you can get, it does not necessarily follow that you should purposely collect lots of cards that are of no use to you. This is where you must employ some strategy. You could either collect similar cards to fuse together and produce a stronger version of the card, use crappy cards by sacrificing them to “train” a much more powerful card, or just sell it for gold.

What is important though, is to focus on strengthening your line-up of five cards that you will mainly throw into battle. You could accomplish this by winning matches and leveling-up, like combining it to the same kind of card (card fusing) to evolve from its current version, or sacrificing weaker cards to train it and gain experience – to level up as well. Take note though that only the Health points and Attack Power increases upon leveling.

Nevertheless, there are better cards that sprout out of the game as you progress – which are; cards that can attack on multiple directions, damage dealers, and support cards.

You as the Player, level up as well. During level-ups, you are given a specific number of skill points in which you have to allocate among three different stats. Your own Health Points, Move Points, and your Mana Points.

Upgrading Health Points is responsible for - well your Health Points of course. The Higher your HP is, the harder or longer it is for you to be killed by your opponents. Move Points are used basically in the “in-between” matches as you progress in the map. It is important to note that every point in the map corresponds to an area/territory of an opponent. Several pawns on that area will usually appear before you get to fight their boss (your opponent). And by tapping on them (probably depicting that you have engaged them for combat or battle) will correspond a deduction to your move points. Mana Points on the other hand are used whenever you wish to challenge another player (an actual player like you). All of these points carry considerable weight when progressing in the game.

Like most TCGs out there, the graphics, in the form of artwork in the cards, are probably the strongest aspect of the game. Looking good as it is, the game does not hog a lot of resources from your device since the actual actions, animation or rendering is minimal. The music score should probably be good enough to suffice the medieval vibe that the game actually portrays and focuses as its setting. Also, upon initial start-up of the game, the game reveals a short cinematic that introduces you to the story of how you came to be the Evoker (summoner) of the forces to fight evil brought upon by an Evil Lord. Of course, there will be hints of the story as you move-on thereafter.

In conclusion, Evoker: Magic Card Game is a great game to play if you are looking for a card collecting game that provides a decent mixture of simple strategy and complex card stats mechanic. While at the same time, having noteworthy features such as gorgeous visuals, engaging battles, and the challenge as you progress through the game. Although for some players, the wait time in the game puts them off, but I believe that this is just one of the consequences of having the free version of the game—still, all in all, it is still bearable. To sum it up, Evoker: Magic Card Game is still a good game that may take a solid chunk of your time—in a pleasant way, of course.

I do enjoy playing this game but.... Earlier today I randomly got a cave dragon card piece (iv had over 30 full cave dragon cards in the past) in order to get rid of this piece and free space in my pieces part I have to either spend expensive precious gems or for some reason fight a highly superior player for the remaining card piece! Or reroll which cost gems and end up facing an ultimate! I have 8 different pieces and every single opponent for the next piece is either legendary or ultimate hardly seems fair.

This game is a money sink and thus it is below a 1 star rating in my opinion. The funniest part is the adults that blow 100's on this game then get a new phone and find that they cant get there old phones account and have to spend 100's allover again to win duels even at the lowest of levels. at best this game is 1 out of a possible ten and I give it the 1 only because the play and graphix are quite nice. Do yourself a favor and do NOT let your kid download this app or you can kiss your wallet goodbye. Biggest money sink I have seen come out in almost 5 years. the worst kind of business practices...in short a ripoff.
