Digial board games are my favorite but there collectible card games (CCG) are a close second. I am really enjoying CCG games-as you build up you cards, it adds a lot of variety to the game and it is always different. Over the next few weeks, I am going to reviewing a number of these types of games.
Today I am looking at Trouble With Robots from Art Castle. Trouble with Robots has 2 key elements to it, real-time strategy and collectible card. Aliens have invaded and you have to fight them off in various locations. You can build you forces based on the cards you have earned.
At the beginning of each level, you will select the cards (forces) you wish to use. When the fighting begins, you earn power which allows you to play more cards that the computer randomly picks for you and displays at the bottom of the screen.
The robots will be attacking you in waves, in a very similar fashion to Plants vs Zombies. You goal is to survive, which is harder than is sounds.
Trouble With Robots is a fun and challenging game. The free download comes with 1 chapter but you can purchase additional ones within the app. There are 3 difficulty settings and over 40 different cards you can collect in the game.
I like how the developer described the game, “Players will embark on a quest across all corners of the map to unite the magical creatures of the land, and under your banner they will march against the growing control of Voldetron and his robotic legion.”
This is a fun and frustrating game. I had to replay numerous levels many times-trying to find out what the best combination of cards to use. Yes it was all on the easy setting too! Gamplay is smooth and the general story line and humor are well done. This is a game that I will be playing for a while!
The game is setup with 26 story line levels and 6 very difficult challenge levels, with over 40 cards to use. They break down as follows:
Chapter 1: Story line Levels 1-6
Chapter 2: Story line Levels 6-18
Chapter 3: Story line Levels 19-26
Regarding those cards- you will have to play and advance to unlock them. There is no way to know what you might uncover next, which adds to the intrigue of the game.
Trouble With Robots is a game that I can easily recommend for those that enjoy games with a story line, collectible card, and games that will provide a challenge and hours of fun.
