Welcome to the exciting World of Ijou - The Card Game! 

In this game, you'll find yourself knee-deep in mud and manure, as you struggle to build and manage your very own farm, all while avoiding the wrath of the grumpy Lord Grumpy.
As a player, your mission is clear: earn as much gold as possible by purchasing and growing a variety of crops, managing your own team of bumbling villagers, and dealing with your less-than-brilliant herd of cows.

But beware! The lands that Lord Grumpy makes you harvest are infested with pesky monsters that will stop at nothing to ruin your crops and terrorize your villagers.
And just when you think you've got it all figured out, Lord Grumpy himself will swoop in and demand his taxes, leaving you scrambling to come up with the gold he requires.

But fear not! With each passing level, you'll become more skilled and savvy, and with a little bit of luck and the loot you acquire on the way, you just might make it to the top of the farming world.

So what are you waiting for? Download World of Ijou - The Card Game and embark on a hilarious adventure filled with farming, monster battles, resource management, and ridiculous challenges (that includes fighting extinct dinosaurs, the mighty leviathan and even robots in outer space)!

Fun game! And now saves progress!

I found this game randomly. It really is a lot of fun. It’s easy to learn and play. It’s an enjoyable deck builder that has enough depth to be interesting but not so much as to be overly complicated. In other words, there aren’t 5,000 cards and so many complex choices that you end up feeling overwhelmed. It’s very straightforward. So far as I’ve played the progression seems very intuitive, and it’s relaxing to play. It’s also very good on battery.

I appreciate that the developer monetized it so incredibly fairly. In the description the IAP seem to be only optional (I’m not sure where in the menu you even buy them). I’ll gladly be purchasing to support the developer once I play the game more, to support such fair monetizing with no ads.

I also appreciate that the developer responded to feedback. I had mentioned that it didn’t save progress, and he quickly updated it to save automatically after each recruit phase. So now I can play here and there when I have time on a work break. I appreciate a developer who cares about the users.

I do wish it was in portrait mode, as with accessibility issues it’s harder for me to play in landscape mode, so I usually avoid such games. But I like this enough to play in landscape mode, in small doses at least.

I recommend this cute and funny indie game. Thank you developer for creating something fun and unique!

Developer Response ,

Thank you, much appreciated. The In app purchases are on the overview site, when you press the diamond on the main screen.

Here are some secrets:
if you finish a difficulty twice, you will get a permanent item that helps on the next difficulty.
These items trigger special events when left in the sideboard in specific phases.
There are 4 secret levels which grant you very powerful items.
But most of them only make sense when you have beaten the hard mode twice. (And this is not even easy for me. Took my 16 runs to achieve this) 😂
