Hearthstone, which has been a hit on PC and tablets, is now available on iOS and Android smartphones.
If you’ve never played, or even heard of, Hearthstone, it is a digital collectible card game. There are some similarities to Magic: The Gathering and card games of that ilk. You design and build a deck, face off against another human or a computer controlled foe, earn coins, and purchase booster packs to further improve your decks.
The smartphone version has been tweaked, so that the game is optimised for a smaller screen. Your hand is only half-visible at the bottom of the screen and you tap on it to get a zoomed-in version of the cards. If you want to see a single card, simply touch and hold to display it full screen.
Hearthstone on mobile supports the Naxxramas and Blackrock Mountain expansions. But you will need to pay extra to unlock these. The base game, however, is free and available now on iOS and Android.
