You guys are probably more than familiar with Mojang, developer of the ultra-popular Minecraft, but did you know that they’ve actually made another game? Seriously — and it’s not like Minecraft! Scrolls is a card battling tower defense game that combines elements from Plants vs. Zombies, Magic the Gathering, and Blizzard’s Heartstone, all set on a hexadecimal board.
Scrolls is part strategy, part tower defense, part card game. You use the somewhat randomized cards to deploy units, structures, and spells to both defend your own five “idols” and try to destroy at least three of those on the opposing side.
Like Hearthstone, there’s an in-game store where you can buy randomized cards (or scrolls, as they’re called in this game). Scrolls uses a familiar two-tier in-game currency, which can be boosted by spending real money on in-app purchases. In addition to that, pre-tuned decks and specific powerful cards are available, eliminating the randomized factor in the “cheaper” tiers.
Scrolls is a tablet exclusive game, and that means you won’t be able to play it on your normal smart phones. Prospective players can fight against opponents or trade cards with others on any platform, from any platform, which is a nice touch. You can try the demo here.
