Sword & PokerDespite being one of the App Store’s best-received games, card playing hybrid “Sword & Poker” had a patchy history, but it has now been revived as “Sword & Poker Adventures.” Also Read - How to protect yourself from the new COVID booster scam

Released in Singapore as a test venture for new owner Konami, “Sword & Poker Adventures” brings back the poker-based battles that made it famous in the first place, with extra polish and a couple of new additions. What’s more, it’ll be free. As Touch Arcade put it after hands-on time at June’s WWDC 2014 in San Francisco, “Super excited to see the rebirth of ‘Sword & Poker,’ and super disappointed in how the free to play system was implemented.” Also Read - COVID-19 data leaked online, government denies data breach from Cowin portal

But with the game on limited release for now, the TA team was hopeful that appropriate tweaks could return “Sword & Poker Adventures” to its former glory, noting that Konami was keen to take note of their suggestions: “This definitely has the potential to be the definitive Sword & Poker experience,” was the judgement. By way of example, a June 24 update provided more flexibility when it comes to trading between the game’s two virtual currencies, building on a previous improvement that notified players when a time-restricted energy meter had filled up, allowing further free play.
