RUMMY WITH A TWIST

Race to complete each “Phase” and stay ahead. Every Phase has its own sets of cards to collect. When you have your sets, throw them down for everyone to see. The Phase is finished!”

Gameplay

Phase 10 is a card game where the first person to have no cards wins!

Personally, I’ve never heard of the card game Phase 10 but apparently, it’s been a thing since the ’80s. Luckily for us, it’s been turned into an app game!

The aim of the game is to complete the phases you’re given. For example, you’ll have some cards and the phase might be to make 3 of the same colour. So you could draw 3 blue cards and complete your phase. However, the way to win is to get rid of your cards by adding to your phases.

At first, I thought the game was a piece of cake but it was proven to be harder and harder the further I went because there are so many different phases. It also seems like the app store reviews agree with me too, as many of them say Phase 10 is impossible to complete!

Graphics

The graphics remind me of UNO! Mobile!

The graphics remind me a lot of UNO! Mobile which makes sense as they’re both made by Mattel 163 Limited. The game looks amazingly casual with bright colours and fun characters you can personalise your profile with!

Music & Sounds

The audio in the background of Phase 10 is very generic and to be honest, I didn’t even notice it most of the time. I don’t have an issue with it but you could easily play this game without sound if you wanted to!

Controls

Tap to control!

Similar to most card games, there’s a lot of tapping and dragging involved. You need to tap to take a card from the deck in the middle and drag it to add to your phase!
