Family-Made Collectible Card Game Battle for Candora Launches Today on iOS
DALLAS — Feb. 15, 2017 — Created by OnOff Gaming, a family studio composed of two adults and three teenagers, the fast-paced CCG Battle for Candora is now available on iOS for free. Assemble the ultimate deck and land on the colorful alien world of Candora to stop the food coma-like disease known as the “Grey Plague” in this charming take on turn-based strategy.
In Battle for Candora, take food fights to a whole new level with a series of tactical battles fought against the Grey — a race of alien beings that has successfully hooked humanity on sugary treats. In desperate need of a cure, a small group of humans sets off to the candy-themed world of Candora in search of the rare Gluconium-6 — the only substance known to be effective against the disease. Unfortunately, the enemy is aware and has brainwashed the peaceful residents of the planet — turning them hostile.
Wielding a card deck populated by tasty food and famous earthlings (including George Washington, Captain Hook, Spartacus, and more), it’s now time to take the fight to the Grey! To begin, simply place up to three Champion cards — each with unique abilities and weapons — on the battlefield (one in an attack position and two in support). With a limited amount of energy, you’ll need to strategically move your characters around the battlefield, trigger their abilities, and know when to go in the offense to claim victory in more than 65 missions across the 12 unique zones of Candora.
Need to beef up your deck? Enter Gauntlet mode for only $0.99 to test your strategic mettle and earn card packs. You’ll draft a one-off deck to battle some of Candora’s toughest inhabitants — winning up to four card packs to enhance your main deck. With a tactical mind and smart eating habits, it’s up to you to rid humanity of the Grey Plague!
