The Yu-Gi-Oh series has been around for so long now it’s hard to find anyone who hasn’t at least heard the name. One of the first card games to give the dominating Magic the Gathering a hard time, Yu-Gi-Oh became a massive game around the late nineties. This was largely in part to the TV show that became notorious for its over the top situations, censorship and, with regards to the western dub, hammy voice acting. But over time it has created a sense of nostalgia, along with such classics as Pokémon and Digimon, for people when they hear about it.
Enter Yu-Gi-Oh Duel links; a free to play mobile game on Android and iOS which is focused on the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh, featuring the original cast, Yugi, Joey, Kaiba etc and a simplified rule set. Before the phenomenon that was Pokémon Go, I would have believed that such a game would not click with players. But after 20 million plus downloads (correct at time of writing) I am pleased to be proven wrong.
