Truth be told, I don’t know much about MT, but the game broke into the App Store’s top 10 paid games on its launch week, has more than 6 million active users in Asia, and was declared “both addictive and fun” by Forbes. Originally $0.99, I am MT: Card Battle is now available for free, albeit with plenty of in-app purchase opportunities.
Here’s what’s worthy of note, though. If you already paid $0.99 for the game, you’re not out of that hard earned…dollar. Developer Locojoy is giving those who purchased I am MT: Card Battle during the launch week $5 worth of runes—enough to purchase one premium card. Nice gesture, Locojoy. Well played.
For those like me who are unfamiliar with the source material, I am MT: Card Battle is based on characters from the animated web cartoon of the same name that follows the antics of a group of World of Warcraft players.
I am MT: Card Battle players pit their wits and cards against the CPU as they level up their deck. When players feel ready, they can enter the PvP Arena to struggle for control of one of 16 dungeons. Players who hold the dungeons in “King of the Hill” style combat against other players gain gold and honor.
In the game players collect more than 500 cards as they conquer powerful bosses. Cards can be evolved with experience into more powerful versions. I am MT: Card Battle also brings a new innovative feature to the world of trading card games where players can borrow cards from their friends to use in battle.
I am MT: Card Battle is available now for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
