Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft is a trading card game where you can challenge opponents from all over the world to exciting duels where strategy and careful planning are the keys to victory.
Gameplay in Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft is similar to other games in this genre like Magic: The Gathering. Each turn, players receive an extra mana point, used to play different cards depending on how much mana they consume. You can summon creatures to attack your rival or its creatures, cast spells, or combine all your powers to make the definitive move that will finish your opponent’s life points.
Collectible card games have enjoyed so far a placid existence in the mobile space-time continuum, and many companies have rushed to stick their flag and attract players the sooner the better, given the long term dedication this kind of games require.
However, Blizzard chose to not hurry up what could be its best move to blitz into mobile gaming, and developed Hearthstone with care. This also raised some expectations, and comparisons with other competitors are unavoidable. Fortunately, Hearthstone is a little jewel, able to lure usual CCG gamers but also, hence its main goal, to bring and expand WOW users experience.
As no one has ever dared to recreate a trading card game on mobile (where players can exchange cards between each other), Hearthstone creates a system in which you can disenchant cards to earn “magic dust” and create those you really want. We’ve seen this elsewhere, but here is a key element of the game an ensures your deck is overall of your liking and you play with the characters you like most.
You can challenge individuals online or play against the computer, although the most interesting game mode is the Arena, where you have to improvise a deck and try to survive as many duels as possible with it.
The most important things in Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft are the duels against other players, but that’s not all. You also buy cards and collect them to create your own decks, which forms an important element of the game as well. To earn the money you need to buy these you can either win duels or use real money to purchase them.
Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft is an outstanding trading card game, possibly the best in its genre. In fact, the only problem with it is that it’s so good that it can eat up a lot of your time.

- Artwork is gorgeous, Blizzard's signature, but gameplay graphics are elegantly simple to make UX smoother. In-app purchases are quite balanced, and although you'll be always tempted to purchase a booster pack, you shouldn't feel you are losing because of it. Without doubt, one of the best releases this year.
