Hearthstone – Black Rock Mountain adventure goes mobile with new release

If you haven’t tried Blizzard’s Hearthstone now is the time. This past week, the free-to-play, online collectible card game released the third installment of its Black Rock Mountain adventure and – more importantly – full iOS and Android versions of the game. While the adventure is fun trip down memory lane for World of Warcraft players that nets you a half dozen new cards, the new smartphone versions makes Hearthstone arguably the best time-waster for mobile gamers.

In true Blizzard style, the smartphone versions did take about a year to be released but are just as clear and intuitive on your phone as on a PC or tablet. All of the game’s elements are big enough to see and selectable enough for the clumsiest of fingers. A newbie may find himself accidentally launching a Frostbolt at his own face, but even professional Hearthstone players have made that mistake before. The smartphone versions perform quickly and use a small amount of data – just try not to get yourself caught playing at work.

The new Black Rock Mountain adventure is inspired by the Black Rock Spire encounter from the first days of the Massively Multiplayer RPG juggernaut World of Warcraft and offers a fun distraction from the usual play of Hearthstone. While most of the gameplay of Hearthstone revolves around pitting a deck crafted from your collection against other players online, the adventures are more of a puzzle to be solved than a battle of wits against another person. Unfortunately, the artificial intelligence of your adventure opponents is sorely lacking in intelligence, but each encounter has a Heroic mode that heavily stacks the odds against you to even the odds.

The third installment of Black Rock Mountain, released 4/16, is $6.99 or 700 of the in-game currency and the phone versions are free to install and play.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
