Unofficial Dominion App Released for iOS - Official App to be Released Soon
If you are a big fan of self-contained deck-building card games, then you might know of Donald X. Vaccarino’s game Dominion. It’s a game much like Magic: The Gathering, which has been begging for a solid iOS port ever since Apple’s platform first took off. A form of the game has been released and is now available on iOS for $1.99. It is currently unofficial but (temporarily) approved.
It was a bit strange to see an unofficial paid app that actually uses the art and intelligent property of the game but it seems that Rio Grande doesn’t mind it doing that. Apparently there is an official version coming out as soon as “a few weeks” from now. It’s granted temporary licenses to developers to release their own versions of the game as long as those versions are down and gone by the time the official app arrives.
It is likely that many of you who might be interested rather just wait, since it sounds like the wait isn’t that long. It is good to hear that one of the best card games around is coming in virtual form to Apple’s iOS platform. As for those of you who are Magic: The Gathering players, you’ll have to wait as Wizards of the Coast still has yet to announce anything similar to this for Magic on iOS. Currently, there is a reference app for Magic on the iOS platform but there still aren’t plans for an official version of the game itself. As of right now, Kard Kombat is your only choice!
