As previously announced, Minecraft developer Mojang have released only their second internally developed game, Scrolls, for Android tablets. The game is available to download from the Google Play Store.

Scrolls, which is free-to-play but with in-app purchases on Android, is a fantasy-themed game that merges elements of card and board games, with players collecting scrolls to build a virtual army. Users can play what amounts to a demo version for free but can upgrade to a full version for $4.99. Here's a quick list of its features:

  • A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE: Building your army is only half the battle. Develop strategies and take control of the battlefield. The best bits of card and board games, combined.
  • BUILD YOUR ARMY: We currently feature over 350 scrolls spread across 4 unique factions. You can mix and match them as you please.
  • PLAY SOLO, OR WITH FRIENDS: Scrolls includes single player challenges along with online competitive and casual play.
  • CHAT AND TRADE: Trade with other scrolldiers on the black market, or spend your hard-earned gold in our store. Chat with other players both in and out of battle. Please be nice.
  • CROSS PLATFORM: Develop your skills and scrolls library by playing on Tablet, PC, or Mac. Battle with others, no matter which platform they're playing on.
  • JUDGEMENT MODE: Build a unique deck in Judgement mode, then see how it fares against other's creations.
