Runespell: Overture ist ein Mix aus den beiden Kartenspielen Solitaire und Poker, welcher als Kampfsystem mit Rollenspielelementen umrahmt wird.

Das Spiel an sich bietet keine atemberaubende Grafik, aber das Interface ist recht stimmig zusammengesetzt, die Präsentation im Allgemeinen (Artwork, Story, Atmosphäre und SFX/Musik) ist gut und wirkt keinesfalls billig. Eine richtige Full HD Auflösung gibt es allerdings nicht, aber dies ist auch eher ein Spiel, was ruhig nebenher im Fenster gespielt werden kann (es kann zwar auf Vollbild gestreckt werden, aber dann gibt es schwarze Ränder oder eben ein gestrecktes Bild).

Da die Kämpfe rundenbasierend und ohne zeitliche Begrenzung sind, kommt keine Hektik auf und jeder Spielzug kann mehr oder weniger gut geplant werden. Die Fähigkeiten und Begleiter, die zusätzlich zum Einsatz gebracht werden können, sind ein nettes Feature und bieten eine diverse Vielfalt, aber "Deckbau" oder die Erstellung komplexer Kombinationen sind in diesem Spiel nicht zu finden. Dafür können bereits Casual Gamer zu diesem Titel greifen, da die KI zwar fordernd ist, das Spiel an sich aber nicht wirklich schwer.

Ein Mehrspielermodus mit der Möglichkeit, direkte Duelle auszufechten, wäre spielerischer Zucker, aber leider wird man nur mit den Steam Leaderboards vertröstet, die über einen Punktestand ausgetragen werden, welcher spielerisch absolut irrelevant ist.

Mich hat das Spiel anfangs sehr aufgrund des Kampfsystems eingefangen, aber nach über 30 Stunden in der Welt von Runespell, in denen ich das Spiel bestimmt vier- bis fünfmal durchgespielt habe, ist die Luft raus, da der Inhalt trotz der teilweise etwas aufwendigen Achievements doch recht begrenzt ist und eben kein Mehrspielermodus existiert. Dennoch habe ich diese Zeit gerne investiert und kann es daher jedem empfehlen, dem die Fusion aus Spielkarten und seichtem Rollenspiel zusagt.

Runespell Overture (Card/Poker/RPG/Strategy Hybrid)

For options we have Graphics Quality (Fastest, Fast, Simple, Good, Beautiful, and Fantastic), Windowed or Fullscreen, Drag and Drop or Click and Click (when moving cards around), and Sounds (Music and SFX). You can also choose a screen resolution anywhere from 640x480 to 1920x1080.

The tutorial is very well-done, teaching you the ropes without being annoying.

So what kind of game is this? It looks like an RPG that you play with cards, but that's not it at all. The primary thrust is actually a solitaire game... It's battle-solitaire-poker with RPG elements! *evil grin* Whee~!

How does that work? Looking at the screenshots will help a bit. As you can see, we and our opponent are each dealt a set of cards, solitaire-style. Ours is on top, theirs is on the bottom. We need to create poker hands by grouping cards in sets of five. If you don't know the poker hands, no worries -- the game will show you what groupings are "legal" to play. Each "hand" will deliver a certain amount of damage, depending on the cards you've chosen. For instance, a pair of cards (the other three cards in the group would be non-related) will deliver less damage than a flush.

In each round, you have three moves, and then your opponent gets three moves.

But wait, there's more!

You can steal your opponent's cards, and vice versa! If you grab a card from his area (or the other way around,) the card underneath does NOT flip over until it becomes his turn, but whenever you clear a pile on your side, you can immediately have access to whatever card is next in the pile (assuming that it's still your turn.) You CAN'T grab more than a single card from each others' piles -- if something is stacked on the other side (grouped,) it's off-limits to you. You can of course move multiple, grouped cards around on your own side.

Here's an example of how it might work:

You already have three Kings grouped, and take a fourth King to add to the pile, then grab a King from your enemy's cards to make five-of-a-kind (yes, unlike real poker, you can have five of the same card.) You use your third turn to select the five kings and deal damage.

This is where the strategy comes in. Now that it's too late and you've used all of your turns, you see your adversary grab that Jack of Hearts from your cards to complete a Royal Flush! EEEK~!!

Here's what you could have done to prevent it and still get your five Kings:

Forget about your three Kings for right now, grab his king, and place it on your single King, making a pair. Grab the Jack of Hearts and put it on top of another card -- ANY other card! It's better if you can do something with it, of course, but the point is to keep that card AWAY from your opponent. Now you can do one of two things: Do something beneficial (like moving a card to help yourself and/or hurt his progress) or you can move the pair of Kings on top of the three-of-a-kind, and make your attack in an upcoming round.

But wait, there's more!

Along the way we earn (via battles) and find special-use cards that can do anything from give you extra moves before your turn is over to poisoning to shielding yourself, to adding to your hit points, and more! You can only have a certain number of cards with you at the time of each battle, and (most of) the cards have finite-uses. When they run out uses, you can use the money you earn to recharge the cards.

Be sure to SAVE before each battle! You can abandon your progress if you wish -- it's an option to exit or go back to the main menu without saving.

There a bit more to it than that, including a storyline, but I'll let you discover that for yourself. ;)

This game was a huge surprise to me -- I never expected it to be so fun and addictive! A definite thumbs-up from me!

Think Puzzle Quest, but instead of match 3 you play poker solitaire to fight your enemies.

It's fun if you're into this kind of thing. The story is cliched but well-written: I appreciate characters with a sense of cynicism. The art and sound are nice. Tutorials can be skipped when you replay the game.

Downsides: Mystic Box appears to fallen off the face of the earth. Technical settings do not save when you quit the game; I constantly have to hit Alt+Enter to resize my window and re-pick "click and click" (dragging is a pain) when the game starts up

Overall, I enjoy this game. I use this game to kill time or relax: it's not as mindless as a match 3 and it's a fun twist on the premise. I don't expect it to do much more than that.

Runespell is a combination of RPG, Solitaire and Poker, similar in nature to Puzzle Quest. You stack cards like in solitaire to form 5 card poker combos to attack your foes and cast spells. It's fairly simple to play an so is the presentation. The story is based on Norse Mythology and while it's somewhat thin it does has its twists and turns. I found the gameplay enjoyable for the most part and the game doesn't overstay its welcome. Unfortunately, as the Overture in the title says it feels like a first part of something bigger, a second game that may never come out. That didn't upset me but can frustrate some people who got more invested in the story.

Love this card game, use poker hands to defeat your enemys, with plenty of spell cards and allies to aid you when things get difficult. Most enemies are easy to start off and you think its a walk in the park but it soon cranks up the difficulty later on and you have to really think ahead and put good hands together to win. If you like card games then this is worth a shot.

The recommendation is pretty weak because I didn't actually like the game. I think it has the potential to be enjoyable and it is fairly unique, so that alone might be worth it to you.

This game is essentially puzzle quest but with a solitaire combat system instead of matching gems. It's not fast by any means. Essentially you build poker hands to charge attacks, then launch the attacks at your opponent. Essentially you spend the entire game moving stacks of cards on top of each other to make a combo of five, and the higher the combo on the damage scale, the more the attack will do. You can also 'steal' cards from your enemies so long as they aren't stacked.

The combat is cool once or twice, but after that it becomes so repetitive. Nearly every fight is identical, save for the select few where you need to charge and use special attacks to win.

Beyond the gameplay, the music, sound effects, story and graphics are all ok. They're mediocre, they're fine, they're acceptable. Without a doubt they are not great and won't sell the game, but they sustain it without detracting.

All around, that describes the experience: alright, ok, passable. It's not thrilling or revolutionary, but it is unique and if that's what you're looking for in a game then you'll find it here.

This game was very promising in the beginning, but some hours later i felt it so recurring. It is an OK card game with a few unique elements, but has absolutely no challange. It was very easy and just so boring to 100%. Anyway, i recommend this if you can get it cheap at sales.

Its a game worth a try but only worth a try.Campaign is not that boring and can be attractive to some players.Also have a unique concept.
There are 2 deadly flaws in this title in my opinion:
1.Too many useless battles,so you usually get bored after 2hours
2.The limited times to use skills,for more times?you need to buy at a high price in store.I really dont know why design like this,so the game gets more and more boring because you dont want to try different skills but only want to end every battle fast,its a big failure.But enemies dont,they always have 10+times to use and they only mean to get you stucked one time,so more and more hard battles but looked the same.

A pretty unique concept but another of the worst games I've ever played. First boss of the tutorial is too overpowered and I can't beat him no matter what I do. There's better things out there to play. I'm done with this frustrating and stupefying game.

Da meine Ausfürhliche Review nicht gesendet wurde, nur ganz kurz mein Fazit...

Für 5 Euro ist dieses Spiel, eine Mischung aus Solitär, Spidersolitär und Poker durchaus empfehlenswert.
Die Grafik ist gut und stimmig und die KI bis auf wenige Aussetzter sehr gut - hat aber auch teilweise etwas unfaire Kartenvorteile, die man selber so nie bekommt!

Runespell: Overture is a single-player turn-based RPG that uses poker rules and the game takes between 8-10 hours to complete.
Combat involves setting up poker combinations (flushes, full houses etc.) with different combinations dealing different amounts of damage. You can use your own cards or even steal individual visible cards from your opponents.
Dealing and receiving damage builds 'rage points' (essentially mana) that can be consumed to use spells (damage spells, defense spells, etc).
I would recommend this game for someone who wants a throwaway game to occupy a bit of time.

Pros:
- Easy-to-grasp gameplay concept
- Novelty poker rules are interesting in the RPG genre

Cons:
- Forgettable 'plot' - weak story
- Can be frustrating at times due to the RNG nature of cards

I have tried repeatedly to get into this game and I just can't. I find it dreadfully boring and I usually like games that do the puzzle quest thing. I'd skip this unless you really like the idea of playing a poker/solitaire mashup a puzzle quest-esque progression. Trust me, it's not as interesting as it sounds.

As a fan of poker and Rpgs i thought this would be a pretty interersting and fun game....i was half right

It seems well enough when you begin. You try to get a combintaion of 5 cards, the attack power being determined on how well it corrosponds to to the poker hierarchy and try to wittle down you're opponents hp. simple enough.

You are introduced to spells shortly after, assuming this is where the tactics come in.....well not really.

The main problem with this game is that it is barely like poker at all and barely an RPG. The attack points could be determined by...pretty much anything else..infact it might benifit from this as what happens 90% is you and even the A.I end up making as many pairs and then full house's as you can with usually lower damage if you try anything else in addition to being harder to achieve. There almost no point in making a higher hand than you're opponent as all it does is take off slightly more hp...i mean ♥♥♥♥ i some what assumed that it might nullify one of his hands....or something..you know kinda like POKER.

The spells offer SOME varity and tactics but not much, the cost vs reward of most spells make them mostly interchangeable.....its kinda amazing actually how there could be so much varity and yet so little.

Overall the only people i can recommend this game to is to someone who wants a simple card game that has some odd and fairly unique mechanics..........but mostly it is a dissapointment and wasted potiental.

The map is a bit cumbersome, but overall this is a very good game. If you like the original Puzzle Quest, you'll probably like this.
