Raunchy, funny, well-made card game, but not for kids.

Like the show it's based on, you probably already have a good idea of whether you'll like this game or not. South Park is a divisive program. Even some older fans may not find it as funny anymore. But if you like the show, you'll love South Park: Phone Destroyer. The trademark sense of humor is just as raunchy and offensive as you'd expect. And the story is largely a threadbare one that's meant to support the game's jokes. If that were all that Phone Destroyer had going for it, it'd be a bust. But the card strategy gameplay itself is also very well done. It's essentially like other strategy deck building games: Players use cards representing characters from the show, each with their own abilities to defeat opponents. As time goes on, you collect more cards and upgrade abilities to become more powerful. The single-player campaign is fun to play and not too frustrating -- and players who prefer player vs. player (PvP) can battle it out as long as they'd like. There's a bit of a heavy lean on in-app purchases, especially as you progress later in the game, but that's quickly becoming the norm for titles. Ultimately, this is a well-crafted game loaded with humor. The question players need to ask is: Is it the kind of humor that appeals to them personally?
