Tons of opportunities to level up and customize your cards.

Not so much?


No real control over battle.


Final Fiendish Findings?

For gamers who are all about leveling up, I AM MT: Card Battle offers tons of opportunities to do just that – and to create an assortment of cards that are truly your own. It is super easy to just pick up and play, without a lot of complex elements or strategies to learn – which means that even young card game fans should have no problems enjoying the game. Unfortunately, it is just that simplicity that will turn other gamers off. While the cards and characters are vibrant and well drawn, it makes it all the more disappointing that you aren’t given a lot of choices or control in how to use them.

LOCOJOY brings a free to play card battle game that will have trading card fans collecting like fiends.mzl.vrehrpmj.320x480-75

So, if you or your children are fans of trading card games, I’ve got a little something new to introduce you to. I AM MT: Card Battle takes the “collecting” part of these games pretty seriously, with a game that is way more about the cards and a lot less about actually battling them. Your goal is to “find and level up as many cards as you can” – so gamers who just enjoy creating that perfect deck will have a great time in this game.

As you begin the game, you are given the opportunity to choose your character from three choices – Shaman, Hunter, or Warrior. Along with this card, you’ll be given a Warrior and a Priest to start out your team. An easy to understand tutorial walks you through the basics, but there isn’t a whole lot to learn – I AM MT: Card Battle is extremely easy to pick up and play, as there really isn’t anything complex to the gameplay.

When you enter a dungeon (you go through them in order, so no choices are made), you are given the choice to pick a “helper” card from a list, and you then set up the formation of your cards. There are six blocks for your cards to go in, and you simply choose from these six blocks. As you work your way into the game, you’ll soon have a team of five of your own cards, so with your helper included, it is simply a matter of filling in those blocks. And then, you battle.

The biggest surprise for me in I AM MT: Card Battle was that the battles are completely automated. Once you have selected your team and helper, and placed your team in formation – your work here is done. You will watch as your cards advance in the dungeon, meeting up with various groups of enemy cards, until finally you reach the boss. But short of tapping a forward arrow in between battles, you really do nothing at all. Your skills must lie in creating the best team possible from the cards you have.

As you win battles, you will acquire new cards from your enemies. These can either be added to your team, or fused with other cards to make them stronger. It is here that card fanatics will have the best time, combining different cards to make the strongest cards possible. Fusion costs you gold coins, but you do earn quite a lot of those in battle – so it isn’t much of a problem. For anything else in the game, the currency is runes, which are earned at a slow rate in game, or can be bought via in-app purchase.
