Urban Rivals — an online trading card game where users discover, collect and play with over 500 trading cards — is going iPhone, allowing existing and potential new community members to join the community, which at the moment counts more than 7 million users.
I’m not a big card game fan, hence I’m passing along an excerpt from the press release:
Each character belongs to a specific clan, including pirates, gangsters, and military types, and building your deck to harness their different powers is half the fun! Players build experience to unlock more powerful abilities, and enjoy new looks as the characters blast through different levels. Hourly tournaments give players the chance to win more cards and credits!
The application comes with a starter deck of 8 cards and it’s completely free to play. However, you can always purchase additional packs of cards to strengthen your deck. That priviledge, however, costs 99 cents for a pack of 3 new cards, each of which comes with unique personality descriptions and artwork, characters stats and profiles of their special powers.
A short gameplay video follows after the jump, and here’s the Urban Rival AppStore link. (iTunes)
