“8.0/10 - KarmaStar is a fun, fresh strategy game that reminded me of a card game without cards…If you're looking for a strategy game for your iDevice (sic) and are sick of Tower Defense-style games, KarmaStar is a smart pick-up.”

– IGN.com

“8/10 - For me Karmastar was a breath of fresh air. It’s decidedly different from anything else that I’ve played on the iPhone. If you’re in the mood for something offbeat get Karmastar, you won’t be disappointed.”

- The10k.com

"KarmaStar is fun, tactically challenging, and sports enough charm to deserve a good faith round of its unique gameplay" - Pocket Gamer

KarmaStar is fast-paced strategy game that speeds you from birth to old age in just 8 turns.

Maneuver through the years, making decisions about how you treat the other players as you face an assortment of life's most embarrassing and triumphant moments. The choices you make are not always obvious. Building your traits early can pay off later, but sacrifices can sometimes lead to great reward.

* Boost your traits each turn or gamble by attacking another player.

* Use wildcards in clever combinations as you work toward a strategic chain of bonus scores. An opportunistic series of moves can often give you a big lead.

* Explore a variety of strategies, from constructive to combative. Like life, the game supports different paths to success.

* KarmaStar can be played alone or by up to 3 players via WiFi, in any combination. There are 3 levels of difficulty.

* Deceptively simple at first, games last 8-10 minutes. Play a quick game as you're waiting in line, or join friends for a game over coffee. Life passes quickly.

* KarmaStar tracks your Achievements, wins/losses and career high score.

* Easy to learn, but addictive.

* Engineering by Wooji Juice: Silky smooth animations and effects, in single-player or WiFi multiplayer.

* The game is automatically saved if you're interrupted by a phone callreturn later exactly where you left off.

* Quirky, signature style: Artwork by Pierre Bracconi. Music and sound effects by dSonic.

KarmaStar is recommended for people who like strategy, card, dice and board games.

Original and fun!

:
A very unique and original game. Great for those casual gamers out there who love Bejeweled, but often need something a little more intellectually challenging. Karmastar is fairly easy to pick up -- very easy to get addicted to -- but requires more strategy than your average casual game. Because each game lasts for only eight rounds, it provides the perfect "mental break" when you're having a long day, but can't take another lunch break. :-) Kudos to the developers.

Wish I Would Have Thought of It!

:
This is just one of those little gems that is not just a simple strategy game. It's a card game, a board game, and a war game all in one.

The premise had to have taken a while to develop. Coming up with the balance between playing it safe and taking chances (for greater rewards) took some thinking to get it right.

I would like to see the game expand with more play modes, such as Internet (not just wi-fi), more game goals, additional wild cards, and the like. The developers of this are certainly capable of giving us more of the same fun.

Great value, loads of playability, and just plain fun in under 10 minutes. You do a log thinking in such a short period of time.

One big suggestion: offer quick references in the game for each wild card and bonus. I know you can switch screens to look it up, but until you get it all memorized, there has to be a better way to remind the player which card does what and what bonuses are available.

One heck of a game. It's definitely on my first page of apps!

5/5 stars

Sweeeeet!!!

:
Very good looking app. The play is actually smooth and exciting. The reviews I read were right on, I'm hooked. Quicker game play would be nice.
