Created by "World of Warcraft" developer Blizzard, Hearthstone is a strategy card game where players build their own decks to duel against one another online. The game is easy to pick up and understand but has enough depth and customization options to keep the more advanced players hooked.
Hearthstone has grown to over 20 million players since it's launch last year, but up until now, players have been stuck playing on their computer, iPad, or their Windows or Android tablet. While Blizzard has been promising a more mobile version of Hearthstone since the game's launch, the iPhone and Android versions were delayed so that Blizzard could fine-tune the app's design for the smaller screens found on phones.
The new layout re-arranges things, but maintains the same fantasy flavor found in desktop and tablet versions of the game. Your card hand now resides in the bottom right of your screen, and some of the charming interactive details of the map's environment have been removed to leave more room to play.
Hearthstone is available as a free download for iPhone or Android phones starting Tuesday.
