Blizzards digital collectable card game just dropped on iPhone, Android Phone and Amazon phones today. It features a very streamlined interface built with small screens in mind. I played 3 matches on my iPhone 5S today and they ran flawlessly. As someone that isn't really into tablets or playing Hearthstone at the Desktop I love Hearthstone on my phone. As far as I am concerned it's the best way to play it and allows for very casual in and out play.

I recommend you play a match on your phone as they are handing out a free card pack to everyone that plays a game for a time(practice matches included).

Very cool. I downloaded it this morning. I'm much more likely to play games on my phone than anything else these days.

Playing the first few intro matches, it's working really well. It does seem to have a long load time when you first boot it up, but it's not too bad. I think I'll be enjoying this game :)

Just tried it on my phone. It's funny the way it's ported over.

I play this game on my laptop, my tab, and phone.

I had played it on my phone before using the hacked version for tabs and it ran fine. It's different now because they made the interface bigger and rearranged things so it can fit on smaller phones.

My tab is a galaxy tab 3:
Type TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Size 7.0 inches (~66.0% screen-to-body ratio)
Resolution 600 x 1024 pixels (~170 ppi pixel density)

My phone is a galaxy note 4:
Type Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Size 5.7 inches (~74.2% screen-to-body ratio)
Resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels (~515 ppi pixel density)

I almost wish I could adjust the resolution, because everything feels a tad too big and I'd like it zoomed out a little (on my phone).

That said, I'm glad it's finally released in full for phones.

I am glad it's out too.

Oh hey, JaBo I had a question based on something I saw in a casual match. I was playing some random person and they were playing REALLY badly. They brought out a boar with charge and didn't attack right away. They also aimed a fireball spell directly at them which did damage to them, which i've never seen before. I am curious if this person was just really bad or possibly throwing the match for some reason? The end result was I won match and I got some gold from a daily quest but it was a strange fight.

I am officially addicted to this. Haven't played a lot of PVP matches yet, as I'm unlocking all the different starter decks, and learning about customizing decks.

This game is really a lot of fun!

Yeah, I've been hooked on this game for over a year now, it's just too quick and easy to pick up and play.

Jon, It sounds like they either were an 8 year old or possibly having trouble with lag causing them to fireball themselves. I've had it happen to me once where I went to fireball something and as I was dragging it from my hand across, I lagged and it dropped my fireball on top of myself... it was awesome lol.... But it sounds like more than one "noobie" thing going on here. So my guess is a really young player

Makes sense, thanks JaBo. Hasn't happened after that.
