Lightseekers Launches Digital Card Game, Physical Expansion

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

PlayFusion has announced two big releases for their Lightseekers card game series. The first is a new mobile game that recreates the collectible card game in digital format. The second is the first expansion to the physical collectible card game, called Lightseekers Kindred.

The Lightseekers mobile game is available now on iOS and Android. The Lightseekers Kindred expansion will arrive August 7, with its first appearance at Gen Con 2018 (Aug. 2-5).

The Lightseekers mobile game features custom AI matches, quickmatches against friends and online players, as well as ranked matches and leaderboards. Digital booster packs are available to add more cards. Players can scan their physical cards into the digital game, and also level them up.

“We’re seamlessly blending the physical and digital worlds in ways that have never been done before,” said Mark Gerhard, CEO and Co-Founder of PlayFusion. “We also want to express our sincere thanks to the community that continue to support us – you are awesome! We promise you that Lightseekers will only continue to go from strength to strength!”.

Lightseekers was previously released on mobile devices as “Lightseekers RPG.” That game was a 3D action-RPG (think Skylanders) scaled down for mobile. The new mobile game is a direct translation of the card game.

The physical expansion set will add 291 cards, as well as six new constructed decks. Kindred Booster Packs will feature an expanded 12 cards per pack (9 cards in the initial set).

Given the focus on the card game, PlayFusion may be angling more toward the Hearthstone model rather than the Skylanders model. Ligthseekers initially began as a toys-to-life franchise before launching the card game.

The new Lightseekers mobile game is available now for free (with paid booster packs) in iOS and Android.

Teen Titans Go Figure! Now Available on Mobile

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Teen Titans Go Figure! is the new mobile game based on the Teen Titans Go! cartoon, and it’s available now on iOS and Android mobile devices and tablets ($3.99). It’s a sequel to the well-received mobile game Teeny Titans and inspired by the upcoming feature film, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, by Warner Bros. Animation, arriving July 27.

Teen Titans Go Figure! lets you play as Robin, Raven, Cyborg, Starfire or Beast Boy as they collect heroes and battle villains across Metropolis, Gotham City, Arkham Asylum, and other famous sites in the DC Universe. It features nearly 100 3D stylized figures to collect, battle with, and level up, including Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. With that many heroes there’s also some not-so-famous names like, uh, Space Cabbie and Condiment King.

The battle system is 3v3, and you’ll need to know which heroes to switch in and out at the right time, not unlike Pokémon, and very similar to Teeny Titans.

In app purchases exist to provide random goody bags of loot (yep, loot boxes), as well as customizable options for your figures, like Repaint Tokens.

Teen Titans Go Figure! is developed and published by Cartoon Network (licensed by Warner Bros.) and rated E10+. Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is the first feature film based on the rebooted Teen Titans Go! cartoon series. It stars Will Arnett and Kristen Bell, and arrives in theaters July 27. It’s rated PG.
