VEmpire - The Kings of Darkness

VEmpire - The Kings of Darkness

I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys card games. Both the art and music are beautiful, and the basis of the game is very unique. The developer is very open, honest, and passionate about making the game all it can be. To him, it isn’t just about creating a game, it is about a creating a friendly, helpful community around the game.

A HUGE plus is once purchased, you own everything, there are no in-game microtransactions. Though some may not mind them, paying real money for virtual items just seems foolish to me, especially as they can add up fast. That is simply my own opinion, but I’m a casual gamer to begin with. When I see microtransactions, I think “another way to milk money out of customers”. Wolfgang is VERY animate that such a model will never be a part of this game, and given his straightforward nature, I have no doubt that is the truth.

Oh how I dislike to review EA titles, but alas, those little kids who love to play critic, while not even having spent an hour to play this game, kinda force me to.

I´ve played tons of different TCG´s and CCG´s over the last 25 years (Dune, MTG, Star Wars, Battletech, Shadowrun, Illuminati, Jyhad, Mythos, Aliens/Predator, Kult and maybe 1-2 I´ve forgotten).

VEmpire doesn´t fall short of those at all. It´s a solid game, although still in EA, that will receive some further polishing and improvements, but is absolutely enjoyable and fun as it is now.

The Monster Within

The Monster Within

The Monster Within is a deckbuilding game that oozes atmosphere. The art and music are excellent and do a great job of putting you in the setting.

Admittedly, there are a lot of deckbuilders. So, what does this game bring to the deckbuilder genre other than a fantastic theme? First, the cards you can choose to buy are dictated by your health. The lower your health, the more powerful cards you can buy - but, of course, the closer you are to losing. This mechanism feels really good, especially because the rounds go a little longer than most deckbuilders. Which brings up something else different about The Monster Within - The longer rounds allow you to really build your deck around a theme and capitalize on that theme. The third thing that sets this game apart is that the developer is extremely responsive - seriously. Join the discord and have your bugs taken care of pronto.

At present i wouldn’t recommend. The progression in the game is based on doing things to unlock stuff (thankfully if you click on the locked stuff, it will tell you what you need to do to unlock it, in theory) sadly in reality, i have beaten the game with the scientist multiple times, it didn’t unlock what it’s supposed to, i beat the game on the blood 1 difficulty again multiple times , again no unlock, so i can’t unlock any more characters, cards or ailments until this is fixed.

What i have played so far has been kind of fun though, so if and or when this gets fixed chances are pretty good i would change my review to recommend.

The Game Review

Game Visuals

I want to mention that the visuals in the game are nicely done. The visuals can be adjusted in the game’s option menu.

Game Audio

I want to mention that audio for the game is well done. Even though the audio is somewhat simplistic and repetitive. The audio can be adjusted in the game’s option menu as well.

This is a fairly simple and straight forward Solitaire game. Like most of these, it doesn’t exactly follow the rules of regular solitaire, and is very much like the Faerie Solitaire series.

This one is Halloween themed and you also earn currency for building 3 different castles.

There isn’t a whole lot of incentive to play after you get all the achievements other than to just get all the stars. You’ll have your achievements if you perfect every level, well before you reach the end of the game. you can also unlock special Mahjong levels, but there isn’t really any reward for beating these other than a little bit of extra currency. The dots for these do go from red to green after you beat each one, helping track completion progress. However there is only two achievements for these, to win 3 and win 10. There are 50, so other than a little bit of extra currency from each one, there is no incentive to win them all except for some in game completion to get all the green dots.

Andor - Wrecking Dawn

Andor - Wrecking Dawn

Although Andor is not so competitive comparing to other hot card collection games, it is still a choice to take an easy free game in Andor. The true game can be start in hours after you know its rule by some detail introductions, and a good news is that basic cards (white and blue) is easy to get, as you can get tons of packs in many ways. I see this game still has problems, but they are willing to fix it if you report.

For playing several card games like Hearthstone, Faeria, ESL, etc. I must say that I enjoy my experience in Andor so far.

The game is very promising …

The graphics and the music are good. The gameplay works well and the system is original on some points like having to discard cards to get mana unlike the majority of games of the genre where it increases automatically every turn. The system of rows and lines of attack as well as that of spells and counterattacks are also aspects of the game that are new and enjoyable. Deck and strategy possibilities are many and varied. The single player campaign is quite long and already offers many challenges.

Hunt: The Unknown Quarry

Hunt: The Unknown Quarry

I’m thoroughly enjoying this game. It’s a great alternative to Cluedo, but slightly more challenging and in-depth, in my opinion. It may take a few games to get to grips with the mechanics, cards and options available, but it won’t be long before you find yourself either being targeted/preyed upon or interrogating/attacking other players. It’s a dog-eat-dog type of survival game, where everyone’s out for themselves including the monster. The theme and daunting background music enhance the game, making you feel slightly uneasy (like prey), not knowing for sure who, what or where the monster is, unless they reveal themselves. Also, playing as the monster is an additional challenge, which requires an alternative strategic approach. You’ll soon find you can’t just go around munching on fellow opponents in broad daylight, but have to maintain a far more stealthy disposition. I felt the game was fairly balanced well, particularly if playing the monster against AI opponents (for mediocre players). However, I haven’t had the chance to properly play any friends online yet, so can’t say if this will be the case against live players, who I think will be a little more savvy. In any case, I believe this could only enhance the game further, making self-preservation more challenging. I’ve seen other comments related to lack of online activity (no one to play with) and about playing for free. For me personally, it’s no big deal, never felt the real need to be able to play strangers online. I took a gamble, bought the game and tested inviting a friend to play (for free), which worked fine, no issues. I was sceptical at first after reading some comments, but am extremely pleased to say how glad I am that I made this purchase. I can’t recommend ‘Hunt…’ highly enough, for those who love Cluedo, Mystery of the Abbey (tabletop games), but then maybe I’m just extremely optimistic and easily pleased.

Okay I love this game. Like a lot it mixes a lot of elements I like. It has a huge learning curve as many said which I think could be cut down like if you had a sheet or a tab to check what monsters did what that would be cool. Other than that the people complaining about assholes in chats and that didn’t group play I bet, its would be much easier playing with just friends than random people

Over all I don’t make a lot of reviews but i love this game so fucking much I’m leaving a review.
