Clear the dungeon of 54 cards by using item-cards, slaying monsters and managing your limited inventory. On each run, you can use five ability-cards (mini deck building) to gain unique skills. By collecting gold, you can unlock 35 more ability-cards to access new tactics and even higher scores.

Card Crawl’s four single-player game modes are enhanced by Game Center to let players compare their scores and the associated decks. A typical game lasts two or three minutes and is a perfect “one more game” experience while waiting in line or commuting.

• 35 unlockable ability-cards

So good!

This game is so well done. The first few rounds, it seemed okay but nothing particularly special. Then I realized that there is much more to this game than at first meets the eye. I think it’s more similar to a five card draw than solitaire, in that it really is luck of the draw in many cases. A combination of luck and strategy makes it so much fun to play. I would be embarrassed to tell you how many hours I have put into this game. I started with the also fantastic Card Thief, and once I played that out, I looked into what other games were made by Arnold. I couldn’t believe it, but I actually liked this a bit more. You might think this is for a younger crowd, and perhaps it is, but I am a soon to be 50-year-old four-time cookbook author and food blogger who I suspect does not meet their target audience. 😂 It feels greedy to ask for more levels and challenges once it’s completed, because the game really has so much to offer, and yet I do find myself wishing there were more. But that is not a negative mark against the game, but rather a testament to how great it is. I’m taking my girls to PAX in Boston next week, and I only hope the developers are there since they’re one of the only people I would care to meet. Thanks for a fun way to decompress after a long day, and I hope you come out with more wonderful games. Congratulations on your success.

Easy Concept Oozing with Charm

This game is very easy to understand as the tutorial is explained well and it only takes 2 minutes to complete. The more the player plays the more skill cards that are introduced to the game which a great way to give the game longevity and intrigue. As well as that more game modes and quests are introduced the more the player plays which is such a breath of fresh air compared to other games that block “content” with In app purchases and energy timers etc.

The sounds and look of the game are charming, like something out of a Dungeons & Dragons Inn. Kudos to the developer here, this is what mobile games should be! I picked up his other games because I want to encourage this standard :)

Deceptively simple

At first I wasn’t a huge fan of card crawl. I always saw it as being too easy and opted for ENYO and card thief instead. Lately I’ve been playing it more and i started too see the fun in it. All the unlock-able cards are really fun and interesting additions to the deck during play and the art is beautifully bizarre and grotesque. As for the difficulty, the game is only going to be too easy if you don’t play for a high score. Beating yourself quickly becomes very challenging (and also very fun) to a degree that I would consider this the developers hardest game. This game if worth more than you’re paying for it.
