A giant, evil heart sits atop a tower full of nefarious creatures. Can you climb high enough—and survive long enough—to Slay the Spire?
How it plays: Choose a hero in this brilliant deck-building strategy game—maybe the fierce Ironclad or the mysterious Watcher—and start your ascent. Play cards from your hand to unleash mighty powers against jaw worms, dark knights, and other bizarre critters. Gain more powers and keep climbing!
Why we love it: Slay the Spire’s rich tactics play out differently in each run-through—and every card makes a difference. Amassed lots of blocks? Pair those with a card that turns defense into attack damage. Or perhaps you should invest in poison to slowly drain health. You never know what the tower—or your hand—may hold.
Don’t miss: Relics can have a huge impact on your run, especially ones that grant lasting upgrades like extra energy or increased hit points. It often pays to pick these over relics that give onetime boosts.
Meet the creator: Slay the Spire was built by Seattle-based indie studio MegaCrit.
