WWE SuperCard For iPhone And Android Brings Pokemon To The Wrestling World, But Will It Flair Flop?

If you are wondering what exactly WWE SuperCard for iPhone and Android is all about, the closet comparison are collectible card games like Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Magic: The Gathering. The game is addictive, but there are some drawbacks to its current implementation.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, WWE Smackdown is officially moving to Thursday nights, which probably have Thursday night football fans none too pleased. John Cena also announced he will never, ever turn heel, and some rumors suggest that Brock Lesnar was originally supposed to put Daniel Bryan in his place at SummerSlam 2014. If you are looking for something a little more out there, check out the extremely dark video of Undertaker doing the ice bucket challenge.

WWE SuperCard has launched to rave reviews, and people are saying it can be extremely addicting. But what is it about, exactly? Essentially, you get to make your own super dream match with your favorite wrestlers, but gamers are already learning to be wary of Super Rares of Andre, Big Show, Miz, Batista, and the formidable Cameron. The rules are not as complicated as Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon, but WWE SuperCard is still based upon the a similar gameplay mechanic based upon rock, paper, and scissors. The trick is grouping the right balance of WWE superstars, including a WWE Diva, in order to find a good balance. Then you have to train, train, and train some more.

Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K, says WWE SupeCard on iPhone and Android is so popular as a free to play game that it has beat their records.

“In less than one week, ‘WWE SuperCard’ broke 2K’s records and became one of the Company’s most popular free-to-play games to date. ‘WWE SuperCard’ is a fun, engaging and addictive game for mobile game enthusiasts, WWE fans and card collectors alike, bringing the larger-than-life action of WWE straight to their mobile devices to engage with at home or on-the-go.”

The number of WWE SuperCard downloads has exceeded 1.5 million, and you’ll probably find many of your friends online. The trick is being patient enough to train up your WWE SuperCards, since the way they make money is by allowing you to buy more powerful cards as an option.

There are some current negatives to the current version of WWE SuperCard. It’s impossible to challenge a specific friend online to a match and you cannot digitally trade cards. It’s also impossible to communicate aka trash talk with your competitor. Since WWE SuperCard is free, I doubt there will be too many complainers, but of course the ability to purchase awesome cards does have the negative side effect of allowing people to win their way to the top with real money.
