Star Wars: Assault Team

I downloaded another new free-to-play game yesterday, this time for iPad, and it’s Star Wars: Assault Team. It’s sort of a card game – in that the cards basically act as avatars for your characters, that you can upgrade – and each mission has you moving through a space in first-person view, encountering things to pick up and battle. As with most free-to-play games, the start is definitely fun, as I’m not encountering anything that is preventing me from playing when I want – there is an energy system, but I haven’t been empty yet, and I haven’t yet encountered anything that I couldn’t overcome with good management of my team. The game does look quite good, and it’s fun to make up teams with all manner of Star Wars characters. Combat is turn-based, with each character having a regular attack and a special attack/action – for example, the rebel medic has a healing special action, which is quite useful. I doubt I’ll stick with this for long, but for now it’s good fun.
