Scrolls is a work of game-design alchemy, mixing the strategy of a tabletop miniatures campaign with the deck-building of a collectible card game. Far from being muddied or muddled, however, Scrolls’ hybrid lineage produces a refreshing game that is elegant and demanding.
When an early version of Minecraft was released back in 2009, it became an instant underground hit that garnered a devoted cult following, thanks to its charmingly simple visuals and easily accessible gameplay. Unfortunately for iOS gamers, Minecraft – Pocket Edition, doesn’t offer anything close to the same experience as it’s computer-bound cousin.
