There's lots of licensed games that bank on the familiarity of famous characters and phone in the rest, leaving players with plenty of fan service, but a hollow shell of a gaming experience. Teppen, the free-to-play mobile card game starring an all-star lineup of Capcom characters, isn't one of those games. From start to finish, Teppen is a high caliber, finely tuned, and polished experience that’s not only a love letter to Capcom fans, but also reinvigorates the collectible card game genre for a whole new audience. It might not be a perfect game, but it’s about as close as it can be, and with that free-to-play price that makes it impossible not to at least take for a spin.

At first glance, Teppen seems deceptively simple. The gameplay mechanics are easy to pick up, with players building up energy over time which are then used to play cards dealt to their hand. Just about everything is built around a timer and knowing when to play a card is just as important as know which card to play. As easy as the game is to learn, the difficulty comes in analyzing the 200+ cards available in the base set and coming up with a custom strategy to build a deck around. While the base decks earned in the game’s Story mode are good enough to get through some single-player encounters, taking the fight online against other players takes a lot of extra work. This also highlights the game’s biggest flaw, as some players will shell out cash to pick up a healthy collection of cards, leaving more frugal players potentially outmatched in a pay-to-win scenario. Still, Teppen is a fantastically fun game with a lot of nuance and a lot to offer to both Capcom fans and fans of collectible cards games in general.
