Last night, Blizzard released their card based strategy game Hearthstone on smart phone devices!

Blizzard’s boss Mike Morhaine has said that Hearthstone’s “quick, super-accessible gameplay is perfect for gaming on the go.” We couldn’t agree more – bringing Hearthstone to mobile is an indicator of how this gaming platform is becoming increasingly advanced and will soon be taken more seriously be professional gamers.

 

 

What's The Difference?Apart from a new interface designed for smaller screens, there will be no differences in gameplay. Existing players will be able to sign in and find full access to their decks. The mobile app will also offer all the same features and content that exist on the PC and tablet versions of the game.

An Added BonusTo celebrate the arrival of a mobile app, any players who complete a game of Hearthstone on their phone will be given a free Classic card pack from the original Hearthstone deck. This offer stands no matter if you win or lose, or what game mode you play in. So, there’s nothing to lose by trying out the mobile version.

iOS vs. Google Play?As the mobile Hearthstone has only just been released, it may not show up in searches yet. The iOS version appears to be fully live, but unfortunately Google Play is still showing up as tablet-only. We've got the direct links to the downloads here:
