Nova Blitz Review

Play NOW!

Nova Blitz is a real-time, digital, card game set in a future universe ruled by five Aspects of energy: Arcane, Tech, Divine, Nature, and Chaos. Developed and published by Dragon Foundry, Nova Blitz shares similarities to both Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering. This one has a huge difference though to all other TCGs out there. Turns are played simultaneously, giving an element of quick reflexes to the gameplay.

Starting off, you get a starter deck to try out and start playing and earning new cards. Deck building isn’t as important in Nova Blitz as other games, as whatever you build, your active role in battle can turn the tide every time.

When combat starts, each player decides what they want each of their units to do in the combat. They can attempt to attack the opponent directly, attempt to block an enemy unit you think will be attacking, or just not participate at all. There are lots of neat and varied effects, including some which affect cards still in your deck, which is possible due to it being a digital CCG. Card art is beautiful, as well.

As expected, You get punished for sitting back and thinking over the next best move. Of course making the best possible move is still important so you have to think fast. Nova Blitz has won over many TCG players that were looking for something more interactive, however, its playerbase is still pretty low.

What’s bad though about Nova Blitz is clearly things that can be worked out easily. Bad chat system, slow questing and card balancing are the only things where the game lacks. Its low playerbase is also a minus but as the game is currently getting released on mobile devices, that is set to change.

To sum up, Nova Blitz is a good trading card game, respecting your time and the effort you give to each match. If games like hearthstone and Shadowverse don’t seem interactive enough for you, this game with its simultaneous turns is a great alternative.
