About 13 years ago, MicroProse released the now legendary collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. After a while, in 2002, M: TG Online was released. Then there was a prolonged lull lasting 8 years, after which new masterpieces began to appear one after another.
The first sign was Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers version 2011, then 2012, and now 2013, which is designed specifically for the iPad. The developers didn't bother with the name of the game and settled on a simple one: Magic 2013.
The content of the game is not much different from the two earlier versions, although we know that this is a new product. In any case, the appearance and execution have the smallest changes. However, there is still a significant difference - in the new game, it became possible to turn over lands manually. Fans of the game note some minor flaws and a little unusual control, but agree that the iPad version is quite successful.
The game has new expansion cards: Magic 2013 Core Set, based on them there are 10 preconstructed decks that will be unlocked as the Campaign, Revenge, Planechase and Challenges campaigns are successfully completed.
Campaign, the first campaign, is something like a "ladder" of competitions, in which the gamer fights against the AI for the right to take the lead in magic. There are 6 worlds in total, and each of them has a large number of enemies and a boss. Opponents must be defeated, this is the only way to get close to the boss, the victory over which makes it possible to open a new world. If you look at it, the first campaign is educational, because the virtual opponent often throws the same cards. If a gamer with experience is playing, then this will not be difficult for him, and beginners will master it much faster.
As for the second campaign, Revenge, it is somewhat similar to the first. The only difference is that the opponents will be much smarter, and the decks will be more powerful. To defeat strong opponents, you will need to choose the necessary, and most importantly, the correct battle strategy, and this is unlikely to be done on the first try.
The next campaign is Planechase. There are no less than two and no more than four duelists. In addition to ordinary decks, there is also a Dimension deck, whose cards are magical and also affect players. This deck is influenced by a special six-sided die. The behavior of the Dimension deck can be predicted depending on the number of participants in the duels: easier if the duel is one-on-one, and much more difficult if 3 or 4 mages are involved.
The most difficult is the last campaign - Challenges. At this stage, you will find 10 puzzles of varying difficulty. Let's say you have a very strong opponent, and you need to defeat him in a very limited number of moves.
It is worth noting the visual design. The graphics of the game are losing in their colorfulness, as they could on the iPad 3, since there is no support for the Retina display. But it is likely that future updates will correct this flaw. Another not entirely pleasant little thing is the very small print of the help information on the game, especially necessary for new players. But reading it is not the most convenient experience.
Alas, Magic 2013 is also missing from the multiplatform online game. The iPad does not even have a mode called "Two-Headed Giant". In this case, there remains the possibility of playing one on one. If there is no real rival or he suddenly disappeared from the game, he will be replaced by a virtual rival.
Of course, Magic 2013 has enough shortcomings, all games sin this, but this does not detract from the interest in the game and the desire of users to play it. It's safe to say that you can play it on your i-tablet, which makes it possible to call this game the best electronic version of MTG at the moment. Well, do not forget that not many card games have survived to this day and have the same success.
