Yu-Gi-Oh BAM Brings the Trap Card to Facebook
If you're old enough to remember that it's time to d-d-d-d-duel, then you may care Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM released today on Facebook's gaming site. Based on the plot of the manga and various iterations of the card game, BAM is as addictive as it is easy. The format's designed for simple click and drop with your deck. The plot's even has less of a structure: "This is your world; a shattered place lost in time after a cataclysm that wiped out all traces of the duels."
It's not even as much of a game as a the old Magic: The Gathering online game that just requires your card to have a higher number than your opponent's card, while magic cards and power-ups are off to the side. The music, though, is a weirdly up-tempo techno beat that will drive you insane, if you're not won over by the hypnotic nature of it first.
"The game's leading developer has expressed his certainty in Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM's broad appeal stating: 'Yu-Gi-Oh! has been popular across the world for many years but we thought it was time to bring it to a new audience. We created Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM as an intuitive, fast-paced Facebook game that is accessible to everyone - existing fans, gamers and even those with no past experience of either!'
This exciting new game includes a compelling storyline, over 300 specially modified cards and the unique opportunity for players to duel their friends. An intense and addictive burst of fun, players will have the chance to progress smoothly through challenging levels set against a number of intricately designed backdrops. Tutorials provide useful hints and tips whilst various Power-Ups and rewards can be used to further the player's progress in the game.
To ensure the player is always fully prepared for battle against both in-game opponents and friends, Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM boasts a number of deck building functions. A player can either create his own personalized deck from the cards available or use the Insta-Deck function to generate automatically the best deck for the duel. With all these features Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM remains simple, engaging and accessible... Just hit BAM and let the duel commence!"
Just remember to not let any of your friends know you're playing a children's card game on Facebook when you could be Farmville-ing.
