In a way, digital is the perfect place to play classic card games. The rules are spelled out or taught in a tutorial, there's no cleaning up, and you can't lose anything important. Which is why we're a bit excited about Trex VIP.
It's a game you might not have heard of before, but it's incredibly popular in the Middle East. It's a game of contracts, tricks, point-scoring, and trying to outsmart the other three players. And it sounds pretty damn cool.
It's got pass-and-play and online multiplayer, as well as plenty of modes that see you taking on a fiendish AI. There's a complex mode that's perfect for experienced players, and a simpler quick mode that eases you in to the experience.
On top of all that, it looks pretty damn good as well. Everything's shiny, the animations are slick, and all the information you need is presented in a way that's easy to read.
The game is set to hit the App Store on Wednesday, June 6th, which is next week. It'll be free to play, with IAPs. We'll keep you updated when the game lands. In the meantime, check out the trailer above to get a feel for what's on offer.
