Build the ultimate deck in collectable card game Outcast Odyssey [Sponsored]

Hankering for a good old collectable card game? Well, Outcast Odyssey might well be the game for you. It’s out right now on iOS and Android and features all of the card collecting and deck building you could hope for.

There are over 300 different cards to collect, and each of them can be evolved or fused to increase their power. You’ll have to figure out the best combination of these to build an awesome deck.

The truly ultimate decks require you to master a bunch of special abilities though, which can also be combined for greater effect.

Outcast Odyssey has just celebrated its one year anniversary so we reached out to Erik Wahlberg, Live Producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., to talk about which IAPs he’d recommend to new players, the best strategy for winning every game, and whether or not there are plans to host tournaments in the future.

In which territory has the game performed the best and why?

Outcast Odyssey recently had its first anniversary, so we already know where our most devoted players come from.

“The United States, the UK, and Russia are among our most successful territories.”

Are there any differences between the Android and iOS versions?

“No. Since players can battle and interact across platforms we felt it was important that the game features and experience be as similar as possible.”

Deck Rayman and Barbara in Christmas Costumes in the first Rayman Adventures update


Rayman Adventures, which launched on December 3rd, has already been awarded a place among the App Store’s ‘Best of 2015’.

It picks up where Jungle Run and Fiesta Run left off, except this time there’s a larger focus on exploration thanks to a new ability to swipe and change direction.

Aside from that though, you’ll still be running through a variety of UbiArt-developed levels, beating up enemies, collecting Lums, and freeing captured Teensies as before.

In terms of plot, Rayman and his Viking companion Barbara have to save the enchanted forest which is in danger after the ancient eggs that keep the sacred tree safe were stolen.

These eggs contain Rayman’s greatest ally to date – the Incrediballs. They’re bizarre in appearance but have special abilities which help Rayman to achieve the highest score – and the biggest rewards – in each level.

They come in three different forms. Seekers hunt high and low for hidden items, Protectors beat up enemies, and Inhalers pull all Lums towards you like magnets.

You can bring up to three Incrediballs into a level with you, with the power of their abilities increasing when you choose more than one of the same family.

For example, if you choose three Inhalers, the…

Update: EMPIRE: The Deck Building Strategy Game (Games)


EMPIRE: The Deck Building Strategy Game 1.2.2

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ .99, Version: 1.2.1 -> 1.2.2 (iTunes)

Description:

“Empire is so tight it squeaks, and I suspect it’s the best game I’ve played this year.” – pockettactics.com – 10/10

"This is the iPad game of the year. Highly polished." – ipadboardgames.org – 9/10

“With Empire, Burgun and co. strip back the 4X genre to its fundamental parts, add a few twists of their own, and then chuck in some deck-building strategy for fun.” – pocketgamer.co.uk – 8/10

The barbarous tribes who fought amongst themselves for so many aeons are at last able to come together to found a wondrous civilization. Is yours the first of its kind in this world, or one of many? No man knows, but what all men know is that their Empire must not only survive, but flourish!

The world is full of terrible horrors, however, and they will wear away at your Empire from all sides. Natural resources have become more scarce. And perhaps worst of all, your powerful Empire has grown heavy and full of internal strife with its age. How long can you stand the pressures of survival before your Empire finally comes crumbling back down into the desolated earth from which it grew?

UPDATE 1.1: the big one! New Emperor selection, gem resource, balance tweaks and bug fixes. It is good to be the Emperor!

EMPIRE introduces the world’s first "Deck-Building 4X Strategy Game". EMPIRE is a quick, easy-to-learn yet difficult to master strategy/tactics game. FEATURES:

– Choose from 3 unique emperors to play, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

– Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two games will be alike. Will you find valuable mountains to mine military materials from? Food-rich forests that will grow your Empire quickly?

– A unique take on the deck building mechanism similar to those in Dominion, Puzzle Strike or Ascension. Your deck grows during the game, and it fills with both useful Action Cards, powerful Spell Cards, — and also totally useless Strife Cards. Managing your deck is an important part of staying strong!

– Dozens of interesting tactical cards featuring excellent art from concept artist Gilles Ketting.

– A unique grid based tactical combat system. Use your Action and Spell cards to get the upper hand and destroy the enemy forces!

– Unlike traditional 4X strategy games which not only take hours, but tend to become slow and boring late game, EMPIRE is a quick, elegant knife-fight of a game.

– Designed by indie game design superstar Keith Burgun, creator of 100 Rogues.

We have tons of plans for the game in terms of future content additions, balance patches, extra game modes, and other support.
