    There's nothing bad I can say about Nightfall. It's Playdek's finest game to date, and people that might've been a bit bored by the solitary nature of Ascension will find a ton to like here. For me, there's an evolving level of strategy to the game, and I know it's going to be front and center on my iPad for quite some time.

    2011's Nightfall has made its way to the iOS and while it's not the first deck-builder on the scene, its uniquely brutal and aggressive style means you'll need to keep track of every player as they attempt to stab you in the back - fun offline or online with friends and strangers.

    Nightfall is gripping when played in real time against a good opponent, but the game does not extend much of a helping hand to new players.

    So as far as a tabletop game, Nightfall is just weird enough to be worthwhile. But as an iPhone port, Nightfall is a disappointing mess. That I'm no longer playing.
