Popular Zombie Windows Phone card game, Shelter to be made free on July 29


Shelter is a popular zombie card game for Windows Phone, dragging players into the depths of immersion and enjoyment. We're able to relay some good news today, particularly if you do not currently own this beautiful title. The developer has got in touch to reveal that the game will be available for free (usual price is $1.99) tomorrow in collaboration with MyAppFree.

Be sure to mark July 29th in the calendars to ensure you're ready to hit the Windows Phone Store and download your copy at no extra cost. So what exactly is Shelter all about? It's a hybrid game, sporting elements from both collectible card and castle defence games. There are hours of gameplay to enjoy while on the move. And who doesn't like a zombie game?

Shelter App

The game description itself draws you in. "Defend yourself from the zombie onslaught as you fight to be reunited with the woman you love. You define your strategy, but be warned... no single strategy will win." There are a number of features packed into Shelter that makes it worth covering here and we're going to strongly recommend you all check out the trial before tomorrow if you're that eager to get your paws on some zombie action.

Here are some highlights:

  • Deep but accessible game-play. Easy to learn. Hard to master.
  • More than 100 game cards.
  • Integrated deck builder for deeply customisable play.
  • Graphic novel & comic inspired hand drawn artwork.
  • Compelling story and characters.
  • 5 Campaign levels including a free roaming level.

It's certainly worth checking out if you're into card games, enjoy battling zombies or get enjoyment in defending towers. You can download Shelter from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99 - if you can wait another 24 hours, you'll be able to pick up the game for free. Available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x.

clappenings says:

Free sounds good to me

Raylz says:

Always love free especially when 7.x is involved

hitchhiker90 says:

Cool.  I've been looking to get into an AD&D or Magic type of game but no one around here plays it and I don't know how. This might fill that void for me.

Bob101910 says:

There are a few Magic games on Xbox Live, PSN, and PC. I've only played the 1st Xbox version (there's a new one every year).

In the trial, you can play a mentor type mode where you get matched with a player online that helps you learn the game. Since not many people play that version anymore, it's easy to get matched up with a friend if they bought the game (if you know anybody online that likes Magic). This is how I learned to play.

There's also a regular interactive tutorial too.

Love zombie games, plants vs zombies, zombie HQ, time to move on to this one, looks great
