Announced at the 2013 E3, South Park Phone Destroyer is now available in soft-launch in some countries. We tested the new mobile game from Ubisoft and it turns out to be surprisingly addictive.
Ubisoft has offered E3 2017 a quality conference, punctuated, filled with more or less surprising announcements and with a " one more thing " which conquered its public (Beyond Good and Evil 2). Soon after the new trailer for South Park The Fractured But Whole, the animated series of Trey Parker and Matt Stone returned to the screen with Phone Destroyer, a mobile game in the vein of Clash Royale. Now available in soft-launch the game is in our hands, and here's what we think!
A world totally crazy
The South Park Phone Destroyer, as its name suggests, takes place in South Park, Colorado, where the most trashy kids on television are looking for a new game. So their choice is Cowboys VS Indians and The head of the six-shot faction, Sheriff Cartman appeals to the New Kid, aka the player himself. For this, he does not hesitate to break the fourth wall and contact us directly by FaceTime. A use of mobile codes rather fun and ingenious.
As time goes on, blows and additions in bad faith, you'll soon understand that cowboys and Indians are not the only characters in this unforgiving universe and that they are quickly joined by pirates, robots , Extraterrestrials and all the wacky characters of the animated series, but also of the game The Stick of Truth.
Of course, throughout the game, we find the dirty and politically incorrect humor of South Park, both in the small details of the scenery and in the dialogues, but also in the descriptions of the cards. Special mention for the horde of rats " that probably come from Kenny ."
The Royal Clash in the South Park sauce
Yes, because it is indeed a card game to collect. The player makes his deck and then goes on to attack the single player campaign or PvP mode (player versus player). The system is more or less similar to that of Clash Royale, namely that each card requires a certain amount of energy to be played, which is filling over time. This requires the player to think carefully when creating his deck but also during the game. Finally, there are several types of cards: tanks (slow, a lot of life, but a weak attack), warriors (homogeneous), remote murderers (we need to specify?), Assassins to the body With body, very fragile, but very powerful, and the spells.
Once in play, our characters automatically advance in horizontal scrolling attacking the enemies who are on their way. Some can also use their special power from time to time when it is loaded (care, zone damage, group boost …) on the order of the player.
