Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft plays as a familiar turn-based card game. Players summon creature cards and cast spell cards based on the familiar fantasy Warcraft universe in an attempt to defeat a rival hero. Every one of the nine heroes has their own unique special ability as well as a sizable batch of collectible and craftable cards. Casual online games, ranked matches, and grueling Arena games appeal to varying levels of difficulty. In-app purchases are employed for access to the Arena or to buy new packs of cards, though both can be accessed with coins earned by completing daily quests.

Decks are custom-built and must be 60 cards each, with a maximum of two identical cards. All Hearthstone games require an internet connection, even the practice games you play against the AI inkeeper. Hearthstone features a simple, useful card crafting system whereby spare or unwanted cards can be disenchanted into dust, which can in turn be used to create cards. Cards are classified by rarity, and occasionally foil versions can be found with high-quality animations.

Hearthstone is without a doubt the best card game to come to mobile to date.
