Here's the launch trailer for SpellCraft School of Magic
, a new free app for Apple's portables. It is apparently a strategy card-battler mixed with some crafting and monster raising elements.
I'm still not happy about portable gaming's mass exodus to mobile phones and tablets, and the huge chunk of history, interactivity and depth that's been lost along the way, but I must admit this game looks charming. The animations are all quite colorful and well done. I just remember a time when I didn't have to get fingerprints all over my portable's screen to play a handheld game. Remember buttons? Yeah, I liked buttons.
