Video Review on my YouTube channel!Hello, dear reader, I hope you’re having a good day. I’m not being paid to write this blog, and it contains information based on my opinions from playing Chrono Ma:Gia on iOS. I beat the tutorial and Raizer’s story. You can check out my YouTube video at Lunar Nebula LLC Gaming on Chrono Ma:Gia if you want to see the gameplay in action. Chrono Ma:Gia is a free-to-play card collecting game. It has some RPG (role-playing game) elements where you’ll select skills for your gifted and create decks to enhance your power. The game features in-app purchases if you want to buy packs of five cards. Chrono Ma:Gia’s mechanics have subtlety in them making the game take time to learn. Thankfully, there’s a Tutorial with free packs, and a wonderful Story Mode which also gives you a bump into joining the game. You can win the Story Mode handily without paying a dime. There are some fun cut-scenes and animations in Chrono Ma:Gia. There are no ads.

Chrono Ma:Gia is rated 9+ for Infrequent/Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence. An example of the violence expected is Hearthstone or other digital card games. Note I’d suggest the game as being rated 12+ due to some story themes and the animations of some female Gifted.

Review:
Chrono Ma:Gia is well-animated. It features an art style reminiscent of Yu-Gi-Oh and Gungho’s Puzzle and Dragons. The game is fun to watch, and its core gameplay requires strategy and a bit of luck to claim victory. The music and sound effects spice up your duels with other Gifted as you fight to turn back time.

Time: Chrono Ma:Gia isn’t energy-based. Chrono Ma:Gia’s Story Mode is generally quick to play, yet dueling a player will take around 15 minutes.

Pros and Cons: Chrono Ma:Gia is fast to jump into and takes time to master. The Level Up mechanic spices up your creatures’ stats and can turn games around. You’ll need to build a deck and put some thought into it if you want to compete at higher tiers in PVP (player vs player).The animations of some female Gifted feature a certain amount of bounciness a la Baywatch I’m sure is aimed at a male audience. Chrono Ma:Gia gives new players a lot to start with, requires thinking to play, and overall is fun to play.

Overall Impression: If you love card games like Hearthstone or SolForge; then Chrono Ma:Gia is in the App Store waiting for you! If you don’t enjoy free-to-play games, or card games, then Chrono Ma:Gia may not be for you.

Tips:

  1. Create a good curve in your deck – Chrono Ma:Gia’s cards have special abilities, still raw stats are important! To level up a card you’ll want to summon it over a weaker card. Just make sure you have the extra 1 MP or magic point for the level up summon!
  2. Pay attention to Gifted stats – Each Gifted is different. Some Gifted have less health and have a defensive shield instead. The shield defends most damage by the specified amount. A killing attack may just become the MP they need to turn the game around! MP is charged each turn, gained by taking damage, and caps at 15 MP.
  3. Keep some cards around – My second video on Chrono Ma:Gia shows the importance of holding back in case of AOE magic attacks. Make sure to hold a reserve just in case!

Extra tips: Make sure your cards have the best suit and typing for your skills to activate!

I hope the review and tips help you out, dear reader! Time to collect some Skill Gears!
