Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links: game has been released in Spanish! Download now!
- How is the game?
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links is a cardgame set in the 90s anime/manga Yu-Gi-Oh! The game is played with the cell phone or tablet horizontally and has more action, and talking characters, than any other game in the franchise for cell phones.
In fact, the formula here is somewhat reminiscent of Hearthstone. quick matches (but without eliminating any turns or mechanics from Yu-Gi-Oh!), lots of card animations, missions and the possibility to face other players.
In the game's story, KaibaCorp creates a virtual dueling world. The player can face characters controlled by the game, and after evolving, face other players in the PvP arena.
The game contains simple menus with a store to buy packs and a deck editor. In addition to Yu-Gi, it is possible to play with other characters that are unlocked through a portal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hyMUZoIArc&feature=youtu.be
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links looks interesting, but it's very repetitive. It lacks a backstory to support the adventure. But apparently, this is yet to be implemented. Finally, it's interesting how they left the Yu-Gi-Oh! even more attractive, the only thing missing was the Spanish translation.
