Get your trading card game fix in this award-winning cross-platform wonder, for Mac OS X, iOS, Android, and PC from Wulven Studios!
When it comes to visually stunning titles Shadow Era is up there in the charts, with bold graphic styles, and a wonderful interface, making this trading card game, (which typically translates poorly to handheld devices) an absolute joy to play.
When first starting the game, you must choose a hero to represent you and your deck. Hero’s are broken down into 2 factions, Human and Shadow, and each Hero also has a class. This decides what kind of cards you can place into your deck. For example, if selecting a Human Mage Hero, I can use Human cards and Mage cards but not Rogue or Shadow.

Say what you want to about Apple and their controlling, even heavy-handed policies and decisions at times. But for sure, the FBI has never issued a warning to users of Apple’s devices like it did this past Friday to Android users.
The short of it is the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) says it was “made aware of various malware attacking Android operating systems for mobile devices. Some of the latest known versions of this type of malware are Loozfon and FinFisher.”
There’s over a dozen recommendations on how to keep you and your Smartphone running Android safe from negative consequences.
They might have added another: Just buy an iPhone.
It’s always kind of been a given that Windows more or less dominates the marketplace. Traditionally that’s been driven by lower-priced hardware and a desire of users to match what they used at work. During the Mac’s first year of sales, the IBM PC outsold Macs by a ratio of about six PCs for each Mac. After clones were introduced, that ratio increased dramatically.
The folks over at the market research site, Asymco, have compiled sales numbers since 1984 and have found that after peaking at a ratio of 56:1 in 2004, Mac sales have taken a larger and larger share of new computer purchases. Right now PCs only outsell at about 20:1, which is less than half the rate it was 8 years ago and the lowest it’s been since Windows 95 was released.
If you take all Apple’s offerings – Macs, the iPhone and the iPad – together, that ratio plummets even further: closer to 2:1!
Of course, debates abound whether adding iOS to OS X is fair; though there is some overlap in function (web browsing, email, etc.), the two operating systems serve two distinct functions: “desktop” and “mobile.” In that vein, iOS should be compared to Android and/or Windows Phone – where it’s just about an even heat between iOS and Android.
However you want to look at it though, it’s clear that Mac ownership is on its way up. With a 25% worldwide user base and the “halo effect” of the iPad and iPhone, it only looks to get better
