A New Strategy Card Game is Cast onto iPhone and iPad

VANCOUVER – June 22, 2011 – Hothead Games today announced Kard Combat, a single and multiplayer strategy card game for iPhone and iPad, available to download for free and coming soon to the App Store.

In Kard Combat players choose their destiny by selecting a mage and participating in an ancient tournament of cards and magic.
