Hi, I just discovered Magicgrove (v.3.0) and instantly fell in love with it!
The UI is essential but practical, and I find it particularly elegant and inspiring while playing a match.
The cards themselves are absolutly GORGEOUS, and the implementation of non-scanned borders/text (framing HQ cropped art) makes them really "alive" and gives the whole thing a great sense of cohesion. Oh, and they are GORGEOUS.
The actual pool of cards is fairly consistent, and I really hope it will grow steadily over time. I would like to see small but frequent updates between the major releases, just to add a few cards easy to program (maybe with text similar to the ones already implemented). I know it's still a lot of work, but it could help to keep users excited about MagicGrove.
The AI seems really good to me (but since I have no programming skills, I can't judge the underlying mechanics themselves) and it's quite fast, too... Some occasional bug ends the match prematurely, but it's still an enjoyable experience overall.
So, a big BRAVO! Please, keep working on your great game. You have +1 loyal fan!
