Klondike Re-Imagined

Klondike Re-Imagined

I’m a solitaire nut. But I have always hated the Klondike implementations that have been available. Why should I have to click the HINT button to see all of the available moves? Why should I have to keep hitting the DRAW button to see the next triplet from the Talon?

So, about 15 years ago when I retired from Boeing Computing, I decided to fix these deficiencies and coded my first Klondike. It had all available moves pre-calculated and shown as buttons. Press the button and the move is carried out. It had the entire Talon shown at once (again, with move buttons).

Northmark: Hour of the Wolf

Northmark: Hour of the Wolf



OF A SIMILAR NATURE TO: Hero of the Kingdom

WHAT TO EXPECT: Very short. Story-driven objectives. Fantasy setting. Overhead map movement. Minor RPG elements. 31 locations to visit, some with multiple areas. 196 card deck battle system. Limited number of basic puzzles. Virtually zero replayability value.

Okay I’m going to try to keep this simple as honestly I’m pretty confused how I feel about this game.

I enjoyed every minute of playing it, but at the end of it I’m feeling empty. I literally did everything I could, fought every battle visited every location cleared every arena and got every achievement. The game could be finished easily a lot faster than my own clocked hours,

I was crawling and searching through the dust hoping for more content.

What is here is really solid, good battle system, a decent selection of cards.

Northmark: Hour of the Wolf on Steam



A beautifully realized digital storybook filled to the brim with Amanita’s inimitable charm.

The different characters and their little story arcs could come straight out of an old folktale, and the soundtrack (once again by the phenomenal Floex) fits this atmosphere perfectly. The animation is another highlight. As often in Amanita Design’s games, it’s simple yet ridiculously charming. Representing both your characters and items as a set of playing cards is a clever spin on classic adventure game conventions, and it works very well.

Fun little game, basic, but quite amusing.

A nice break from all of the drama and “git gud” crap in Gamerland­™ these days.

Just silly fun.

One map, that starts small and opens up after you progress the story (fairly quickly).

Story is simple.

Art is silly, hand-drawn appearance, not too hard on the eyes.

Short, but will take several playthroughs to unlock all achievements.

Yes, there are guides, but for me the fun is collecting the different cards from each location, and seeing which characters and which cards produce different results (in the same or different locations). Sure, use the guide(s) if you get stuck, but the game is short, multiple playthroughs don’t take long, and you might find a new combination that works to pop an achievement that isn’t mentioned in the guide(s). You might find an unexpected bit of silliness, too.

Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game

Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game

Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game is set in the Dresden Files universe, with characters and plot mechanics from the books becoming cards that work for or against you. Each book is its own set of obstacles, advantages, foes and cases that become the board that Dresden and his allies try to overcome.

If you are the kind of player that runs away from a challenge because of a bloody nose, Dresden Files is not for you. You will lose in the beginning, a lot. I know I did. To win takes elements of both skill and luck, like any other game with cards and dice. However, it seems the more I play, the luckier I get … hmm, that could be the skill factor of being able to recognize the better plays to make and better risks to take.

This is very much a Marmite game, you’ll either love it or hate it with equal measure. For me its a winner, a game I can turn on anytime I have a few minutes to kill and don’t want to be bogged down in something more involved. and if you’ve played this game in its real world form you’ll appreciate all the Automation this digital rendition brings.

Pros: Its nicely put together and contains all the characters a Harry Dresden fan could wish for the mechanics of the card battles are easy to learn but difficult to really master which makes each victory one to be savored.

Loved this game, it’s a great mashup between threes and blackjack.

I loved to play poker hands, this sequence is also very good.

I recommend this game if you want a relaxing but also challenging puzzle game

Interesting idea to mix puzzles and card games rules. Random elements brings a touch of card game feel.

Art is simple but nice, as well as the relaxing soundtrack. Good for card fans.

edit: the april 9 patch fixed some technical issues, so I edited the review to reflect said changes.

poker hands mixes the matching mechanics from games like 2048 with the rules of poker. move all available cards at the same time and try to create hands (5 cards) according to the goals displayed in the top right corner. pushing cards against walls merges them, but you can also use incomplete hands to block, as you can’t merge two hands of 3 cards, for example.

Great game. Short, but definitely worth it. I love that there are multiple chapter points you can choose so you don’t have to play through the whole story again in order to get to the different endings. There are some minor translation errors, but nothing too bothersome. It’s very compelling. I would love to see more detail about the folklore involved. I felt like a lot of legends were referenced but not much was really explained, like it could all be chalked up to one cultish village and their weird traditions. If these references have a more historic root in Slavic tradition, as a slav by ancestry myself, I’d love to hear it. 7/10
