Great game, seems to need more developer support

Between Shards, Hearthstone, and Gwent, Shards is by far the better choice from the App Store. I own a physical copy of Shards and
both expansions, and it’s a really solid card drafting/ deck builder. But it’s app version is also great, where some games can
be held back in digital form.

Really fun, nice app!

I didn’t know much about this game before buying; I just figured I’d try it because I loved the “Race for the Galaxy” app
from the same developer. Pleased to say I’m really enjoying this so far.

'Awesome but limited'

'Love the game but was basically playing that same 3 or 4 games within a day due to lack of cards. Please add more'

'Needs a slower speed for us noobs.'

'Fantastic AI (Keldon’s from Race For The Galaxy - which is the best modern board game AI I’ve ever seen). I’m a noob
though and the cards go by too fast to get a sense of the ai is doing. Seems really silly they would do a speed update and not
add a slow speed because I’ve seen many other

'Shards mobile is amazing'

'Absolutely love the game and fact that it’s on mobile. I’ve gotten so much more of my friends group to try Shards now that
it’s an app. My only gripe is the attention it’s given. The app crashes constantly, for any reason. It hasn’t received
another update or fix in 2 months, which says t

'Excellent digital version of a great deck-builder

'The developer did a great job of bring Shards of Infinity to iOS — plays well on both my phone and tablet. I really hope they
add the Relics expansion soon, since it significantly improves an already great game.'

'Great game!'

'This game is awesome! Exactly like the card game. The app works but it’s got a lot of bugs. It lags and gets stuck on cards
quite often. I have to shut down the app and reopen it but it hasn’t lost my progress yet. Like I said, it works but it has its
issues. Fix this and I’d give it five sta

'Great game but need more than 30 mins'

'Had a blast with the physical game and was excited to try out the app. Played my first online game with a friend who also played
the physical game. Unfortunatley, it abandoned the game we were actively playing after 30 mins. It was a great match going back
& forth, but we will never know who wou

'Weak AI'

'The AI is weak. I’ve played nothing but games against hard AI and I have won almost all the games. I’ve tried free for all 4
player and one on one and the AI almost never wins.'

'Feels like the start of an Ascension 2.0'

'I was a big fan of Ascension, and Shards certain feels very familiar, but with many interesting improvements. I’m especially
enjoying the mercenary mechanic (getting the choice to immediately use-and-banish some cards instead of solely adding them to the
deck).\n\nThe factions are rather familiar

'Fantastic game!'

'I have owned this card game for a little while and have really enjoyed it. The game itself does not have the numbers in cards
like many other deck-builders, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in how fun and diverse the options are. This game
increases in speed each round and is very entert

'Game crash'

'Game crashes on any difficulty greater than easy AI, no matter number of AI players on the first turn. Attempting to resume game
from menu crashes app immediately. iPad Air, current iOS update.'

'Great game, but slightly buggy'

'Update: New patch adds speed increase! It will exit you out of the game extremely quickly and repeatedly! Test your patches
before you release them. Every time I start a game now, it plays maybe 1-2 turns, then crashes. Sad. But it looks like they

'Terrific Adaptation'

'The developers did a great job of translating this game for mobile. It\'s really fast to learn how to play because the controls
are so intuitive. I especially love jumbo mode that lets you read the text on the cards more easily.\n\nThere are lots of players
so it\'s quick to get into games. Super l

'Need a option to speed up CPU play.'

'*Update* Theres a speed option now for the cards which is awesome! They added an “Exhaust Champions” button which helps not

sharing me email but thats minor now and someth

'Excellent deck builder'

'Beautiful and well-made app that doesn’t destroy the battery on my older phone. Game is fun and balanced but could use a
little more card variety; I’m looking forward to the upcoming expansion.\n\nOne minor issue I’ve found is that when I play the
ally that lets you copy a previously played

'Great digital port of another great Stoneblade ga

'Anyone who likes Ascension should definitely check this out. Uses some similar mechanics, but with many different twists.
\n\nTemple Gates has done a great job of adapting the game. Interface looks and feels great. Runs smoothly. All very intuitive and
easy to pick up even if you’ve never played

'I’m a lifelong gamer with card and deck builders my favorite. \nThe game itself is fantastic and the app is very well
done.\n\nIt plays very smooth with beautiful graphics. \n\nI also wanted to give a huge thanks for the option to increase the font
size on the cards. \nAs on older gamer this simp

Good UI, inconsistent play

Nice graphics and UI, but for $7.99, I expected a bit better. Freezes on medium level every few games. It hasn’t been updated in
over a year so probably won’t get fixed.

Plus the medium level is a huge leap in difficulty over easy so it’s tough to improve. But hey, that’s what you get when

Glitch removing allies

I am getting a glitch where when I play an ally, if I have enough Mastery for its effect, it moves off the left side of the screen
with no effect, and I lose the card.

Often locks up when AI is losing

When the game doesn’t crash, it plays well. Normally I play at “Hard AI,” which usually wins. In cases when I’m winning,
typically when the AI player has less than 10 lives, the game freezes. Closing and restarting the app does not fix this.

Maybe it gets stuck in a loop, or it’s a sore loser. What
