Pocket Gamer: It's an odd thing to see deck-building games thrive on mobile platforms. Once Magic: The Gathering card scans began showing up on the internet, fearful players felt that the online world was hastening the end of their beloved hobby.
Games like Summoner Wars make it easy to see why deck-building games are doing so well on this new medium, especially given the rising popularity of asynchronous multiplayer gameplay.
In Summoner Wars, you take on the role of a summoner who calls forth units to fight for him. When these units come into conflict, the results are handled by an in-game dice rolling simulator.
