Yugioh: Duel Links – Smaller Scale, But Enjoyable


Yugioh Duel Links

So, I’m more of a Magic: the Gathering player, but I’ve still spent my time playing Yugioh.  I’ve spent a lot of time playing it, actually, and so I’m pretty familiar with the early sets in the game. I think I stopped playing three or four expansions in. So when I saw a new Yugioh game on mobile as I was randomly browsing, I decided to give it a go. You start off by picking Yami Yugi or Seto Kaiba, and use a deck styled after theirs. So Blue Eyes White Dragon or Dark Magician, et cetera. You can unlock the other characters later, from what I understand. They give you an absolute ton of gems to celebrate people playing the game, which is standard for these style games. If you’re even remotely interested, I recommend picking it up, downloading it and getting your gems. I have about 1700 gems, and that’s not from being press. Packs are three cards, for 50 gems. So, that’s something to think about. And 10 packs for 500 gems. It looks like most of the expansions in game are fairly recent, and yes, Kaiba’s deck has access to Blue Eyes White Dragon.

However, it’s a faster paced, shorter dueling system. You have half the life points as usual, and only three summons on the table at once I believe. You can play traps, spells, special/tribute summon, and is pretty true to the actual game. It’s just on a smaller scale, so I guess I can see why hardcore Yugioh fans might not be happy with it. I don’t know every rule but it feels right to me, and it’s enjoyable. You can customize your decks, play with decks inspired by other characters in the anime, but. . . it is  a serious drain on the battery. There is a battery saver setting, but still, I’d only consider playing it at home, while plugged in. All told, I really enjoy this game as a mobile Yugioh/card game just in general. It’s pretty high quality, the cards are true to the series, as is the setting. Your goal is to become King of the Duel Links World, so you better hop to and get ready for it!
