The card game with innovative gameplay promises to make a name for itself in this market: Hearthstone better watch out.
“Oh snap” as English speakers would say. The small mobile game from Second Dinner has big ambitions, and it intends to show them to us. marvel snap comes straight from the genius of Ben Brode, the creator of Hearthstone. The collectible card game specialist embarked on a risky bet after leaving Blizzard in 2018: that of creating his own studio and carrying out his own project. It will have taken four years for this new competitor on the trading card game market to make its entry at the end of 2022, and what an entry! Last week, we learned that the game has quickly turned into a goose that lays golden eggs.
As if the studio had the Infinity Gauntlet to convince gamers to play it, marvel snap has attracted no less than 14 million users worldwide, generating the astronomical sum of $30 million. If the game has achieved such feats in just two and a half months, it is not because of the magic of cosmic stones, but rather thanks to its terribly effective gameplay. The games last only five minutes and allow you to take the adrenaline of a game of cards everywhere with you. But beware, a new update is about to arrive and should convince many other players.
Games with ever-higher stakes
Even if the classic game mode has nothing to envy to the best competitors in the field, the arrival of this PvP mode should reconcile some demanding players with marvel snap. If quick games don’t appeal to you and you want to be a strategist, you’re in luck. Battle Mode of his sweet name will be played in several games against the same opponent. Rather than betting cubes and trying to win the game in a few turns, it is life points that will have to be protected.
With a total of 10 points, each round counts while the slightest blow can prove fatal. Like the classic mode, the bet increases with each round, and it is even possible to “Snap” if you are sure to win this round. The losing player then suffers damage equivalent to the total put into play. With this new way of playing, games last about 20 minutes and therefore offer strategic challenges like usual card games. See you on January 31 when this update is deployed to discover this new mode.
