The Silver Award-winning card battler Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil
has dropped its price down to 99c / 69p today.
This sort of sale is not uncommon for the inside joke-laden card battler, which normally sells for $4.99 / £2.99, but it's still a nice amount of savings if you haven't picked it up yet.
...or, y'know, you aren't playing the Gold Award-winning Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
card-battler that launched this week.
Have tube, will travelPenny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil
is a mobile version of the physical card game put out - and populated by - the folk over at Penny Arcade.
Needless to say, you'll need to be a diehard Penny Arcade fan to understand half the jokes and catch all the references, but we found Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs Evil
to be "an entertaining gateway drug into the more complex deck-builders out there" in our review.
We also noted that it's "less imposing than the likes of Magic: The Gathering
, and its bright colours and simpler rules are less likely to scare off casual gamers."
And it offers plenty of play options like single player vs. AI and asynchronous multiplayer - so this might be worth checking out if you can tell your Cardboard Tube samurai apart from your Pax Pox.
