Clubbed to death

Product: Suits and Swords
Publisher: Sony Pictures Ent.
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Card/ board game, RPG
Mixing genres in new and interesting ways seems to be a bit of a trend of late. There's the rhythm-action brawling of KickBeat, the sports-platforming of OlliOlli, and the city-building action-RPG of Kingdom Conquest II.
Suits and Swords looks to be attempting the same kind of feat: blending two different styles of play into one cohesive whole.
It looks like developer n-Space has chosen the classic combo of RPG and puzzle game, as popularised by the Puzzle Quest series and Puzzle & Dragons. How will it stand up against these titans? I'll find out over the next week, as I play the game and jot down my findings here on Pocket Gamer.
If you want a decent game of Blackjack on your phone, I'd recommend getting any of the numerous other, much simpler games out there that provide that, and not this slow, poorly conceived, unfairly difficult fantasy take on the game
