Slay the Spire hits Android to show other card battlers how it’s done

Mega Crit's legendary rougelike card game makes the move to Android

Slay the Spire character

Mega Crit’s Slay the Spire launches today for Android following its iOS debut in June of last year. Publisher Humble Games revealed the port’s release date back in January, sharing its device specifications in the process. Thankfully, they aren’t particularly intensive, so you can hop in as long as your Android device supports OpenGL3 and has at least 1GB of available memory. Naturally, the mobile versions offer intuitive touchscreen controls and a revamped UI for smaller screens.

In case you’ve yet to play Slay the Spire, it’s a tough-as-nails roguelike card battler that originally launched on PC in 2019. Here, you try to make your way up the titular tower, battling hordes of goons and tricky bosses as you go.

There’s no room to get used to things, though, as the tower will change each time you die – so you’ll need to be good at thinking on your feet if you’re going to survive for long.

If you’re a big fan of card battlers, you’d be very wise indeed to check out our guide on the best games like Slay the Spire mobile. There’s a fair few titles you can choose, from Dimensions of Dreams to Meteorfall: Journey.
