It’s been a long while since I last saw a Mobile game with trading feature and I’m actually quite excited to see how it works and if there are any loopholes for exploitations. Too bad the game’s not soft launched in Singapore. I’ll just have to wait for the Global release or actually, you guys who can play the game can tell me how it works!

Mabinogi Duel is available now on iOS and Android in Australia, Canada, Demark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Malaysia. Players can download the game via mobile device from Google Play and the App Store in the select regions.

  1. Hey there gamers!

    I’ve played the close beta for Mabinogi Duel and immediately installed the APK after it soft launched, i would say I have invested enough time to give a review for this game.

    For the overall gameplay and experience……………….an absolute 10/10!

    Here are the reasons why:

    1) Polish – from the interface down to the artwork and animations, this game shouts top notch production. Loading times are decent, interface is well constructed, card parameters are easy to understand. Simple & effective.

    2) Eye candy – Who doesn’t like hot chicks, awesome card battle animations and effects? The battles feel alive and engaging, unlike the pseudo-TCGs you see flooding the market where the only animations you see are cards clashing and damage numbers flying across the screen. Mabinogi Duel animates battles perfectly, fire spells have fiery projectiles flying across to the opponent’s creatures, ranged creatures fire arrows across the board etc.. Then again, it just cant be pretty on the outside and shitty on the insides which brings me to my next point…

    3) Gameplay – Fans of Magic: The Gathering rejoice, Mabinogi Duel is one that brings us all back to the joy of strategic deck construction, albeit a leaner version of 12 cards per deck, all of which are available right off the bat in your hand when you start your battles. You will instantly find the 5 factions/color so familiar and the game allows up to 3 factions within a deck. Card abilities are deep enough to allow for multiple themes in the deck, moreover, the current variety of cards in the first edition of cards (called G1) is ample. You will find your self tweaking your decks as you acquire cards via missions, booster packs etc..

    Various game modes are available: Story missions (decent storyline, funny dialogue), Daily missions, Draft mode missions (where you form a deck on the spot, cracks your brains), PVP ranking arena, Draft PVP arena.

    Overall the game has enough right now to keep you occupied, i have enjoyed every minute of this game. So give it a try and add me

    4) Soundtrack – Did i mention polish? This game gets soundtracks right as well! None of those low quality, off-the shelf, budget electric guitar ones. Put on some earphones and enjoy the soundtracks in this game.

    Alright my 2-cents worth, enuff said. Strategic TCG fans or not, give this game a go 🙂
    My IGN is NineTrigger, add me or ask me any questions. Cheers
