    Between tournaments, however, you can use Card Smash’s deck builder to try out different strategies and upgrade your deck.

    If PVP is more your speed, the RPG also comes with a siege mode where you’ll be tasked with penetrating your enemy’s defenses and invading their castle.

    Of course, customization options are available to ensure your castle doesn’t meet such a fate, from electrifying Shock Cannons to piercing Ballistas.

    War is seldom won by tech alone, and mercenaries will also be recruitable for your various ends, with their skills upgradable. Fiends up for grabs include the Shillien Knight series, Abyss Walker, Spellsinger, and Tyrant.

    The seventh update brought in a host of new content, including a revamp on combat, a new mana system, a new Training Island chapter, and a new Mercenary Codex.

    Featuring heroes Bill and Lance, you’ll be able to make your way across side-scrolling levels in 3D and co-op action.
