Tournament Ark

Tournament Ark

(tl;dr version: Check back in when Early Access is over.)

This game has a sizable amount of polish issues- from areas of the game which should allow you to check your deck, but don’t, to a sometimes rough interface, to the bizarre fact that there’s never a “back” button in areas where it’d be expected, to the fact that there isn’t an input delay set after a match end (meaning you might accidentally click on a post-match event selection while trying to click through the end of the match). The game also has some longevity issues that’d be easily remedied with just a bit more late-game gameplay customization options, as well as some significant balance issues.

I’ve been playing this game since i found it in and all i can say is that it’s extremely adictive and there’s so many different options that each run is completly different and unique. The game itself is a Slay the spire-like game with easy to learn but hard to master mechanics. What makes the game so enjoyable is the combination of both different backstories and archetypes which give a rather diverse gameplay and strategies. If you like cardbased roguelikes like Slay the Spire you’re gonna love this game

Gremlins, Inc. – Card Game

Gremlins, Inc. – Card Game

This original digital card game offers intense sessions for 2 to 6 players. At the core of gameplay lie two key mechanics: “hand management” and “take that”.


The game is set in the world of corrupt capitalist gremlins of the future, the setting that’s already familiar to the tabletop community from the digital board game Gremlins, Inc. .

This card game is a standalone game with its own original set of rules and mechanics, and does not require ownership or previous experience with the previously released digital board game.


The sessions are played for score and for rounds. The player with the highest score at the end of the session wins. Build temporary and permanent projects, play instant action cards and camouflage your plans from the opponents while preparing your attacks.


The sessions typically last between 20 and 60 minutes. The game supports single-player and multiplayer modes, including peer to peer sessions as well as games played on the official servers, and allows to play with different decks.


Before we set to make it into a digital game, this project existed as a real-life card game enjoyed around the world in 6 languages.


We release this card game under the Early Access program as we’ll be expanding and modifying it based on the community feedback. The roadmap includes such features as team mode, ranked sessions and the support of Steam Workshop.

Disclosure: I’m friends with one of the conceptualizers of the game.

Enjoyable game for the price. Simplistic in nature but a generally addictive nature will make players want to keep coming back to the game. The game has you running your own Steam storefront where you have to monitor your stats to assure they aren’t too high or too low, otherwise its game over.

The game suffers from some bugs such as no matter what the event is, every time you swipe right on a card, your game count will increase by 1, even if the choice doesn’t involve publishing a game to Steam and the confusing stat adjustments made in correspondence with your decisions (how does accepting games have the same positive influence on developers as when you deny them?)

Well I originally wrote a long rant about why I hate these devs after they’re first success that was half-decent, but then I realized I would probably get deleted for it, so here’s my attempt at a reasonable and constructive review for this game.

Don’t buy it, Reigns is better. Long story short, it just seems like a cash grab to me, as was their last game after the initial lootbox simulator success that was alright but probably not worth the cost. It’s a half baked concept they put a price on to cash in on. Or perhaps an attempt at a game inspired by games like reign that they gave up on either out of boredom or inability to manage to work out kinks and bugs. I would suggest Game Dev Tycoon or other similar rip offs if you’re looking for the steam-esque simulators. I have a degree in computer game development that I haven’t used in 3 years because I wasn’t a fan of it, so I have a basic understanding of how to make a game. If I bothered to do research I could probably make this myself for free. Anyway, not worth a look if you ask me, if you’re looking for anything from these guys, the only good thing is I can’t believe it’s not Gambling, the first one, not the second.

Freebooter of SPLORR!!

Freebooter of SPLORR!!

I flung turds at a werewolf, bribed some bats, dropped my trousers and defeated a dragon. All this while drinking beer, wine and coffee to keep me going! Was an interesting, random pickup ex’splorring' this game. Trying to win on hard mode now and not poop myself… again.

Definitely recommended for some lighthearted quirky fun!

Freebooter of SPLORR!! is a fun call back to dungeon crawlers of old. Mixed with some great humour and unique encounters, this is definitely worth it. The music and sound effects are on point, giving you an immersive experience.

The randomness of the dungeons ensures plenty of mixed gameplay, and plenty of achievements to work your way towards! Great game if you love the dungeon crawler style games! Highly recommend!

Conjurer Andy’s Repeatable Dungeon

Conjurer Andy’s Repeatable Dungeon


This game is 100% like a Free to Play Mobile game. It certainly was made for that audience and still is Pay to Play. Screenshots do not SHOW how the game really is and they do not mention anything of that on the store page. This is certainly NOT a deckbuilder. You can chose 3(!) cards for a run. 3! The “fights” consist of simply clicking on a wheel of fortune. Either all your characters hit the enemie or they don’t. That’s as much strategy as their is involved. You just get rewards if you don’t die and leave the dungeon. Even then all your used cards expire. What does this mean? There is a timer, like in most free to play games which tells you how long you have to wait til you can use these cards again. For gold you can skip that. If you die in a dungeon, you don’t get gold.

DICETINY: The Lord of the Dice

DICETINY: The Lord of the Dice

This game is actually (and rather surprisingly) good. The only bad part is the writing - it’s full of memes & pop-culture references & lolrandom stuff, so it comes out as rather tryhard-ish. But visuals, on the other hand, are pretty good (even the memes - lots of art is based on them) so, as long as you skip the text, it’s not very annoying. I’ll stress on this - the lead artist of this game is really talented and it’s joyful to look on his works.

But the most important part is that the core gameplay is rock solid. Yeah, you draw cards, sure, you roll dice, but the game is anything but random - all the abilities, deckbuilding, equip system (that one is badly explained in-game - basically, you pay points for the card now so later you can cast this card with a discount; great in early game and for expensive combos which are impossible otherwise; like, say, Juggernaut + Here’s Johnny = whipe all minions on the board) and just the right plays allow you to prevail literally no matter what. The game is not very hardcore, but also isn’t too easy - I say that the difficulty is just about right.

A solid game for the price. The game occasionally crashed for me but I was still able to finish it without major problems. The writing/humor won’t appeal to everyone, but the dice + cards mechanic is surprisingly fun given the limited level/board size. If it sounds interesting, I recommend you give it a look, especially on sale.

The deck design provides a decent amount of choice and options. Cards earn a little slowly at first but soon enough you accumulate enough currency to buy what you want. A minor complaint is that you can’t use cards across multiple characters. Having to pick up extra copies just to outfit secondary decks was mildly annoying.
