I would VERY MUCH appreciate it if you would download it. I would LOVE if you would rate the game on iTunes App Store. I’d be ECSTATIC if you would share this elsewhere (with friends or on the internet).

Richard Garfield, Game Designer (Magic: The Gathering, King Of Tokyo) says,

“It is terrific to be able to play Trouble With Robots again – it is overdue for iOS. It surprised me that it still feels unlike anything else I have played, I would have expected some other game developers to use this obviously good game formula to make a bunch of exciting new games. I hope that it gets the success and attention it deserves – and inspires the new games which >I< deserve!"

You could describe the game as “Pokemon: Trading Card Game” meets “Plants Vs. Zombies,” because it’s a mix of CCG and real-time strategy action.

Here’s a video of me playing one of the more advanced levels.

New Card Game – Trouble With Robots – iOS/Android

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

We are looking for players to try out this new mobile game before it comes out!

Go to http://www.troublewithrobots.com/ to sign up for the iOS pre-release and news emailings.

If you don’t know me, I’m Ed. I started this site years ago, but I haven’t been playing much Pokemon lately. That’s because I’ve been hard at work bringing you a new gaming experience, and it’s very close to the public launch.

Trouble With Robots is a collectible card game that has real-time strategy battle elements.  In the game, your troops battle against the oppressive robotic invasion, and you must collect cards, build decks, and play spells (the cards) to assist them in beating back the invaders.

Pokemon TCG players really seem to love this game, as the card collecting and deck building elements are already second-nature to us.  Instead of typing a bunch of marketing speak, what I would like to do is invite you to play a free pre-release version of the game on your iPad/iPhone.  I think that’s the best way to get the idea across.  If you go over to http://www.troublewithrobots.com/ before the game is released, you can sign up for our mailing list.  I have been personally going over these signups and adding them to our Apple test group invitation list, and, once added, you should receive an invitation email from Apple with instructions on how to get the game.

Call For Family!

In addition to me wanting to share this opportunity with you, I am also in need of some help.  Going into this, I was very optimistic, because I knew that we were working on such a great/fun game.  What I didn’t anticipate was the difficulty in getting noticed.  It doesn’t matter how great a game is unless it gets players.  People must know about it before they can play it.  Once they play it, I think they’ll enjoy it.

What I’m asking is for you to help spread the word.  Could you please post a link on FaceBook, Twitter, Reddit, Google+, your personal blog, etc.?  I would appreciate that so much!  Here are some links you could use.

Leave a comment below, if you have any questions or thoughts!

For those of you that want a little more information about how the game works, I have made a video of me playing the first couple levels of Trouble With Robots.  Check that out here.
