Urban Cards is a deck-building roguelike where earning money is the key to staying afloat in an unfair world. Build businesses, hire workaholic employees and thieves to steal from the competition. Create the perfect deck and work your way to the top!

This is a satire-themed game with 3+ factions and playstyles to choose from.

OPER: The realm of the millionaire CEO, the workaholic suit, and the dangerous smile of a lending shark. Bedazzled by generous bonuses, but be careful of its ferocious appetite for debt.

AKIBARA: The technology valley controlled by gamers, hackers, and neon lights. This is where bitcoin fortunes are made with other people's data, this is where big brother comes to watch.

GASTOWN: The poor and forgotten inhabitants are adept at sabotaging their opponent, stealing from their business while ruling the streets. This do-or-die faction doesn’t shy away from a healthy dose of physical violence to achieve its aims.


Build and customize your own deck by choosing from 180+ cards

Choose from three different factions and their unique starter decks: Oper, Akibara, Gastown

Carefully manage the different types of cards at your disposal: Business, Workers, Henchmen, Actions, and Objects

Accept the challenge and make your way through a procedurally generated campaign with 20+ Events and many hours of replayability

More than dozens of different enemies stand in your way of success: from mob bosses to otaku and money lenders. Get ready to defeat the biggest crook of them all: the Government!

Collect 30+ special items to aid you in your quest to make even more money!

Editors’ Notes

Thwart your company’s competition with seedy henchmen and crooked cosplayers in this stylishly satirical mashup that’s part deck builder, part board game.

Fun but needs some tweaking

I was playing a game had to close it to get back to work and when I opened it later it asked to confirm surrender. Not my intention. Also when I beat year one my “piggy bank”/lives say two but really it’s zero. Swiping through deck to trade cards is difficult. To slide left or right to see the whole deck I inadvertently select a card that I don’t want to trade. Either have a “safe zone” where I can swipe or have make it smart to not select a card when I swipe but only when I press. Or have a check box… I like the idea it is pretty fun but I am sad that my awesome deck that I had surrendered before I could finish playing.

Seems like the trade thing just got fixed!

It’s got potential

I think the game is pretty fun and interesting, I have a few suggestions for improvements though.

1: the 10$ price tag for the full game is pretty steep and there’s no clarification of what buying the full means (i.e what changes and what am I unlocking by buying it)

2: the tutorial is lacking in several areas and it doesn’t explain much about progression past the first few levels. Am I aiming for something or dying in year 3 and just repeating infinitely?

3: trading cards is a nightmare, you can’t swipe through the deck without selecting half a dozen cards, then on the way back to deselect you are selecting another 4 cards. This is mitigated by the tiny scroll bar (I’m on a 10.9” iPad Air and it’s still tough to not select cards while using the scroll wheel

4: in year 2 you start with 2 lives (even when you get bonus lives from year one) and they are bugged, if you die in year 2 you will just die. No second chances, do not pass go, do not collect 200$

All in all it’s a promising game if given some more work and hopefully reducing the price to something a little more standard for mobile games
