Mobile Card Games are a nice way to chill and pass time, they are often laid-back yet very addictive. Unlike action-packed battle royale games, mobile card games offer a nice way to spend your free time. We compiled the four best card games that we liked, so read on to learn more about our top picks!
4. Uncivil War
Based on a physical card game of a similar name, Uncivil War mixes an Old Western theme with 64-bit graphics. There are two game modes you can choose from: the main Story mode, where you have to beat McNally in order to unlock the PVP mode where you can battle with other players from around the world! Though pretty fast-paced, Uncivil War possesses the basic qualities of a trading card game. You can curate your own set of characters and upgrade their skills to better your chances at duels! Since the game’s graphics are in a pixelated style reminiscent of NES back in the day, you wouldn’t have to worry about file size and running out of RAM.
3. Card Thief
Card Thief owes its charm from its amazing graphics and unique mechanics. As a masked thief entering heavily guarded manors and castles, your goal is to steal treasure by making your way across the board using just a limited number of moves. Card Thief requires heavy plotting and strategy, and it’s up to you how you will sneak out unnoticed.
Card Thief’s creative art style has a Gravity Falls-meets-Over the Garden Wall-meets-Adventure Time kind of vibe. As you complete quests, succeeding castles offer more challenging missions yet pack higher rewards. You can also purchase a small range of tools and equipment to help distract the guards and several other creatures within every castle.
One of the things I love about Underhand is that it never ceases to be interesting: from the plot down to the mystical stained-glass visuals, the game pays good homage to our modern interest in the occult. Even if there’s only a handful of levels to play through, each one doesn’t come easy.
In Underhand, you are the leader of a cult trying to win the favor of several Mythological and Lovecraftian deities while escaping persecution from the government. Your choices dictate the cult’s fate, and I find the game’s wildly dark sense of humor to be weirdly hilarious. When playing Underhand, always remember: Human Sacrifice is always a valid option!
1. Lapse: A Forgotten Future
Set in a not-so-distant, post-apocalyptic future, Lapse is probably one of the best pieces of science fiction I’ve ever consumed. Though utterly simplistic in presentation, the game can take you to unexpected story-telling heights that cannot be achieved even by some console games. The intriguing narrative also incorporates the game’s developer as a character.
In Lapse, you are The President. It’s your responsibility to juggle four main resources: the army, the national bank, the environment, and the loyalty of your own countrymen. As the leader of a falling nation, you have to make difficult choices which have immediate consequences that can often lead to your death. Due to some weird twist of fate, you are now stuck in an infinite loop: and no matter how many times you die, you are doomed to repeat this cycle until you finally solve the mystery. This game has left me in a rabbit hole for months since I first started playing it, and Lapse has definitely gotten me hooked!
