Combat Monsters Gets Goblins

  Coming soon to expansion 5… In Combat Monsters, goblins are fairly passive creatures that prefer cunning and manipulation over outright aggro. All goblins are low attack, high health monsters that are reasonably cheap to play. This one featured is also sporting a brand new ability that should please our regulars and links nicely to [...]

It’s winter time, here’s some De-Icer…

Couple of new things just got finished off for our next Combat Monsters update. These are by no means the biggest thing coming, but I know a few of our regulars will like these, so spoiler alert time. I have some useful monsters ready to rock, but my opponent just Ice Blocked everything. Bummer! But, [...]

Combat Monsters v4.0 feature list

Our fourth major expansion is around the corner, so it’s about time I shared what’s going in it with you all. The short answer is “tons”, which I’m sure by now comes as no great surprise. For the long answer… It’s all about the players Our main thrust this time around is to get more [...]

Combat Monsters – new card art incoming

One of the few regular criticisms we get is that our card art is a bit lame. And they’re right, it is! The justification for this is that unlike all our bigger, better known competitors, our cards actually come alive when you play them. The monsters etc. are “real”, so we draw the 3D model [...]

Combat Monsters: Vampires update now out (v3.4)

Welcome back. We have another update for you and it got pretty big again, with 120 new cards and another new race of monsters – Vampires. This update will be the last for a while, as the next expansion we aim to bring you is simply going to need a ton of new work. Team [...]

Steam Reviews – a harsh place to be if you EVER make a mistake.
