Epic Arena battles it out on the iPhone and iPad

epic arena

Epic Arena, which merges elements of fantasy board, card and tactical strategy games, has made its worldwide debut on the iPhone and iPad today after a soft launch in select countries.

The free-to-play game (yes, there are also in-game purchases) is developed by Shadow Masters and was previously launched as a Facebook game. Epic Arena is described in this way:

Epic Arena is like chess on steroids! It is a fun strategy game for thinkers. Its 3D graphics and bone crunching sound effects will excite and delight your eyes and ears, while the tactical and reflective gameplay will engage your mind and test your wits. Engage in thrilling cross platform games in Blitz Mode against other players or maintain multiple matches at once in asynchronous Duel Mode.

What do you think about Epic Arena's mix of game genres?

Epic Arena battles it out on the iPhone and iPad


If it is a full featured game, why the hate? A lot of freemium games only require you to pay if you are impatient. I have been playing Clash of Clans and Boom Beach for three or four months at least, and haven't spent anything and am not at a roadblock yet where I need to spend money.

Sure some games do IAP in a stupid way, like every warhammer game for instance, but many of them are fair. Another example is Candy Crush Saga. I have been playing candy crush for over a year and haven't spent anything. I even disconnect it from Facebook when going from one zone to another so that I can do the 3 quests. Sure it takes an extra 3 days to move on, but so what? You pay for impatience or to make the game easier.
