Back in my university days, I used to be a huge fan of Magic The Gathering, probably the most well-known and successful Collectable Card Game ever. It always provided an excellent way to pass the time during those boring lectures and it was something to do in-between them as well. I have abandoned it since, unfortunately, mainly because of lack of time. But it seems the iOS is likely to change that, with some superb CCG type games appearing on the platform the last few months. The most recent of which is actually a sequel to a rather successful iOS release from a couple of years ago — Orions: Legend Of Wizards (TMA Review) — and is rather unimaginably titled Orions 2.
For all you iOS RPG fans that aren’t me, the big news of the week was probably the release of Chaos Rings Omega. I wasn’t a fan of the first part, but with one character and a more concentrated storyline Omega might prove to be better than its predecessor. For the light hearted romantics there’s Bumpy Road, the game where you get a couple of lovebirds to their destination by manipulating the road they are driving on. If you’re into puzzle games you might want to give Casey’s Contraptions a try. You create fantastic machines out of everyday objects to help Casey get his toys back, and then you can make your own levels to share with your friends via email. Finally, turn based strategy fans can sink their teeth into Orions 2: The Deckmasters, a game that’s part empire building and part CCG.
