Doctor Who

He's defeated Daleks, Cybermen and The Master but now the Doctor faces his biggest challenge yet: Top Trumps...

Who has two hearts, ten faces and a screwdriver that could give your Wii a run for its money? That’s right we’re talking Doctor Who and the good news is the snappily dressed Time Lord will star in his own videogame next spring.

The game is being developed by Eidos with help from Top Trumps, using the classic card game as its template. The aim of each round is to outwit your opponent using memory, chance and your knowledge of the deck. As you progress, ability cards can be unlocked to give you the edge in battle by revealing your opponent's cards or boosting your hand. But this isn’t your average game of Snap as the developers reckon that the tactical nature of the game could mean tougher opponents will slug it out during rounds as long as 15 minutes.
