Rogue Cards (Dungeon Cards) is a mix of puzzle, card game, and a classical roguelike. Each movement of your card creates a unique and challenging situation, a mini-puzzle which requires strategic thinking to solve.
In this card roguelike, you move your character card about a field of nine cards. You have to clash your card with neighboring cards to move it. Monster cards and trap cards will decrease your card's health, healing cards will... well, heal you, cards with gold will increase your game score and there are also many other cards with unique abilities and behaviors.
The game is built with a classical roguelike formula: it is a turn-based dungeon crawler in a fantasy setting with selectable characters, procedurally generated dungeons, pixel art graphics, and the permadeath.
Choose one of the ten heroes, descend into the magical dungeon and slay hordes of monsters in quest of epic loot!

Much more than a card thief clone
Every now and then, if you look hard enough, you find a hidden gem in the App Store. Rogue cards deserves to be up there with the legends like card quest. It’s so small and out of the way that you probably only found this game with a search. Trust me that it’s worth your time and money. The game has layers of depth that you progressively understand the more you play. Unlocking everything requires a thorough understanding of the game’s mechanics and careful character building. I don’t know what else to say that wouldn’t spoil the fun. Just go for it.
This game is pretty fun. The mechanics are simple but requires careful planning to execute well. It’s sort of like a grid based dungeon card game. It’s also very cute!
Unfortunately the random nature of card appearances means you can often get stuck in positions that are literally impossible to escape. The counterbalance to this are abilities and upgrades which you can level up, including more health, periodic auto-heals/attacks, and more. But, then you have to grind to unlock the abilities, which isn’t too bad since the game is enjoyable to begin with, but would be nicer if the upgrades came a bit faster.
Finally, my foremost complaint is that the game doesn’t save dungeon state if the app closes. So if you’re halfway through a dungeon with lots of gold and get distracted and have to leave the app, there’s a chance you’ll lose all your dungeon progress and gold from it. Quite frustrating considering it is a mobile app. Please fix this soon!
Overall, quite a fun concept and I enjoy playing it, definitely worth the trivial $1 asking price. You spend more money on a candy bar than this game costs, please just buy it!
A surprisingly fun and addictive game
First time I tried out this game I didn’t understand it but I soon got the hang of it. The game is very simple yet involves strategy, calculations, and a bit of luck. Through out the game you earn coins that you can trade in for more life points, strengths and other bonuses. More characters become available as you advance levels and each character has their own advantages and disadvantages.
