[prMac.com] Paris, France - Boostr, an experienced mobile game developer has today announced the launch of Urban Rivals for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Urban Rivals is most analogous to classic collectible card games from one's childhood, though with heavy online RPG elements mixed in. In game, players control an army of characters which act as virtual avatars for their masters, duking it out turn-based style with online competitors. Urban Rivals is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for free in the Card and Strategy categories.
The game mechanic itself is excellent and reminiscent of rock-paper-scissors: Players are given so many attack points per round to allocate to their roster. These points add up to damage, and if the player's toon beats their opponent's, damage is done to the loser's life points. Each unit comes with their own special abilities, as well as a clan bonus that clashes or is negated by the enemy card.
Urban rivals is a multi language app, it supports the following languages: English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish.
What makes Urban Rivals a great game to play is that it hosts live fights against other players in the world, allowing you to search and invite your friends to improve your deck of cards. If you are into Manga and trading cards, Urban Rivals is for you because you can play on their website or on their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch application. Every card is worth credits and the only way to make some money in the game is by winning fights. The game lets you practice with Kate, another player that can battle against you while you earn some experience as well as credits.
