"Stardock Entertainment has been around for years and they’ve had their hands in a variety of software endeavors. Originally known for making Microsoft Windows usability applications (such as WindowBlinds), they’ve sought to diversify with game development. Now they’re making a name for themselves in the game space with strategy titles like Sins of a Solar Empire and Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes. Stardock is looking to diversify once more with Dead Man’s Draw, their first entry on the iOS platform. How does it hold up? Has it earned its loot or should be drowned at the bottom of sea? Let’s find out."
