Despite being available only for the iPad when it was launched, Blizzard's Hearthstone card game has become pretty popular. Which led Android users to ask - where is the love? Well, it's finally here.
Blizzard has decided that it will only, again, only support the game on 6in and larger tablets. So that cheap Android tablet you got on Groupon that you have no idea what to do with? You can just download Hearthstone and make it (somewhat) useful.
Blizzard's new crackfest
While the game has only soft-launched in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, you could just be lucky and get the game running on your machine as it is slowly rolling it to other countries.
What does Hearthstone entail anyway? It's a deckbuilder basically - choose a class you like and then fight against other class-themed decks. You can either fight AI opponents or you can have fun beating up strangers.
The basic game and deck is free but Blizzard has rolled out a few expansions with the latest being Goblins vs Gnomes that adds more cards for a minimum fee. What might appeal to Hearthstone players is that since the game is linked to your Blizzard account, you can play on your PC, move to your iPad and now then continue playing on your Android device.
While the basics of the game is easy, the deckbuilding aspect to create the best and most competitive deck can be tiresome for those not into the min-maxing that goes into these games. If you think calculating the best ratio of how many cards of Card A you need just in case you happen to encounter Card B is fun, you will love Hearthstone.
Give Hearthstone a try for free on Google Play.
