    jp's Magic: Puzzle Quest (iPd)

    [December 18, 2021 11:48:09 PM]
    So, it's a Magic the Gathering themed puzzle quest game - and I've played a fair amount of puzzle quest (back in the day). I guess I was expecting something of a re-skin with MtG characters and whatnot. I was wrong - this is a full-fledged Puzzle quest game with a huge amount of extra mechanics - all from MtG, and all the art from the cards and more. It's incredibly overwhelming because, while it uses all the cards (for at least a few years of sets/releases) the mechanics/system are tweaked and changed slightly (for it to make sense in the puzzle quest game). I've mostly enjoyed my time with the game so far in that I've been learning how the different systems in the game work and trying to make sense of the game through observation and trial and error. I've actively resisted online guides and all that stuff.

    The nutshell is that you match gems to accumulate mana you use to cast spells - there are three types of spells one of which is creatures. You can have 3 creatures out at a time and they all attack/block automatically. What's been messing me up the most is that sometimes the creatures block but other times they don't - and I haven't quite figured out when they do/do not block.

    Your character is a planeswalker and you can also charge up special abilities you can use by spending "magic points" you also get from doing swaps on the board.

    The whole game is incredibly F2P with monetization out the wazoo - you can buy different resources, you need to level up cards, planeswalkers (to gain access to higher level abilities), card packs, etc. Oh, you also have a deck of 10 cards (you get free copies, but I'm not sure how large a deck really is).

    There are also events and you can play PvP against others - all this to get access to more cards, better cards (I have yet to see a mythic rare!).

    You can also create decks - paying special currency to open up more slots to store your decks. The weird thing is that, for the last few days, I have not been able to edit/change my decks. I'm not sure if it's a bug or what.

    The OTHER weird thing is that when I downloaded the game and opened it up, it recognized that I had played it before! With stored progress and all that. I don't remember playing the game - perhaps it had a different name? This is so weird!
