June 15, 2020 Slay the Spire is available on iPhones right now.
Surprise! Slay the Spire is out now on iOS. Developer Mega Crit had hinted that we would receive some morsel of information at the Guerilla Collective show last weekend, so we were expecting something at least. Regardless, a nice surprise and a hit to my productivity this week. Slay the Spire will set you back $9.99 on iPhone and iPad.
Details on the mobile release date had been thin on the ground prior to that since Mega Crit Games revealed it would be delayed past 2019 late last year.
As for Android, it looks unlikely that the mobile card game will be ready this month. “The Android version is still in the works but we’re not quite ready to talk about release yet,” Mega Crit explains. “As we know a large part of our community are excited to play Slay the Spire on mobile we took the decision to launch the iOS version first.”
Before that, our last update from Mega Crit games came back in January after the developer told another fan that the mobile port was going “through the QA pass” and was “solely in our publisher’s hands at this point”. The final QA process in games development can take a while, but we should hopefully get a better idea of when we can play Slay the Spire on Android soon.
In case you’ve yet to play Slay the Spire, it’s a rogue-like card battler that fully launched on PC in 2019. You try to make your way up the titular tower, battling hordes of goons 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.
