Slay the Spire's journey is finally ready to make the jump from PC and consoles to mobile devices, with an iOS release planned later this month.

Slay the Spire is a digital card game unlike many others on the market. Rather than focus on PvP, it's more about embarking on a solo adventure more in the vein of Dungeons & Dragons. And if you haven't experienced that on PC or consoles to this point, developer Mega Crit is about to bring it to mobile devices, specifically iOS.

Mega Crit posted the announcement on Steam on Wednesday evening. The developer hasn't released a specific date for the mobile version of Slay the Spire just yet, but notes that they will have more information during this weekend's Guerrilla Collective online digital games festival, hosted by Kinda Funny Games' Greg Miller and produced by the team at The MIX (Media Indie Exchange).

Slay the Spire is a cool mashup of deck-building and dungeon crawling, one that utilizes card battling mechanics and mixes in pen-and-paper RPG events. Let's take a look back at our review:

Slay the Spire will go for $9.99 USD when it launches on the App Store later in June. An Android version will come sometime in the future. In the meantime, the game is already available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. And if you want to jump in for the first time, you'll want to read up on how to get started.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Honestly, I haven't played much ever since the Watcher came out but that's fine. That game really had me by it's claws for a while, there.

          Ascension 8? God damn. I got to like... Ascension 2 or 3 and bounced off at that point. Challenge is fun, but without more unlocks it just feels like challenge for challenge's sake alone. Not enough to really grab me.

      Excellent. Will be triple dipping in this (Switch and PC).

      Probably not if it comes to Android though, I don't game on my phone at all anymore. iPad definitely and would be the best way to play.
