Card Thief reviews and comments

The game makes lust on more, have found no defects and am satisfied with the purchase. The only thing that would need to be changed would be the information in The Appstore. The game with me is in German, according to app-store there is only English as available language;)

The mix of cards and infiltration works wonderfully. We discover the intricacies of the game as we measure. My very best game on the iPad after ' Phoenix Wright '! In the genre I also advise Guild on Dungeoneering. I find it much richer than card crawl which is very good but less profound. In addition the author adds content in the updates. Top!

The game is not always clear. It is hard to understand how some cards work, sometimes you wonder if there is a bug or if it is that we still have not understood how it works. The interface is also not always very user friendly. Especially the game can be frustrating: new cards make us lose instantly, or put us in a locked situation, and we have to give up. A good game to the global, but not perfect in its finishes, and sometimes not fun.

This is a perfect game for when you have five minutes. Once you get the hang of how it goes, it's straight forward, and the graphics are both simple and beautiful to look at. I can best describe the game as a kind of patians, so if you like that kind of game I can heartily recommend this. Works cleanly on the Iphone 6 and iPad Mini (2, I think). Actually Want to also take the opportunity to recommend the ' Miracle Merchant ' of the same utveklare, which is also a simple and fun little pastime in a similar spirit.

A very lovingly made Game! You notice the Level of Detail and even if you have to forx yourself a few Rounds, which requires will and perseverance, it's a lot of Fun. One Develops a kind Of Game urge to have to contest the Rounds like just a few other Games. Every Penny is worth this Game! The Reason why it is still only 4 Stars is the missing Sound. Although I say that it is on in the Game settings, you don't hear Anything, although my Phone otherwise plays music or Videos outside the App as normal. That minimally diminishes the Game Atmosphere-Meckers at a very high Level, I know. ;-) Verdict: Buy Fast & Try Yourself!
Cute little game that is recommended, but not to everyone. If you're an old geezer like I am, with some Nostalgia towards classical card or board games (Solitaire, checkers, Go and such) and really feel like those games could be played in an ambiance of Thief series, this one is for You. I'm truly fascinated by design of this title since it really feels like Thief, but with cards. Medium length sessions (30-45 minutes) are recommended to fully enjoy and progress within the game, but it's quite well built for shorter sessions of just a couple of minutes.  Has its own share of design, UX/UI issues, but none of them really damages an experience, also — the free version is very generous in a sense of content provided.

Trivia: Won Best Game Design award from German Developer Awards and German Games Award as Best Mobile Game.
