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.

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.

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.

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 boring 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 games gets more and more boring because you dont want to try different skills but only want to end every battle fast,sits a big failure.And enemies dont,they always have 10+times to use and they are only mean to stuck you one time,so more and more hard battles and more and more same battle.

Runespell prevede un gameplay a metà tra una partita di Poker, o meglio, di Texas Hold’Em, e lo Yahtzee: l’obiettivo degli scontri è quindi quello di combinare le carte sul tavolo in modo da ottenere delle combinazioni vincenti (coppie, doppie coppie, tris, full, poker e lo Yahtzee stesso, ovvero 5 carte uguali). Queste combinazioni aumentano il proprio potere di attacco se eseguite con lo stesso seme o, nel caso delle scale, se in versione reale. Ma la cosa ancora più interessante è che, durante il proprio turno, è possibile rubare le carte all’avversario, e viceversa, ma solo se non sono già state impilate su altre. Questo piccolo stratagemma rende ogni scontro potenzialmente fatale, soprattutto nelle fasi finali in cui la necessità dei colpi più potenti si farà sempre più forte e di riflesso il nemico cercherà sempre di mettervi i bastoni tra le ruote.
In aiuto a ciò, il giocatore, ma anche il computer, avrà a disposizione una serie di carte speciali utilizzabili durante il combattimento per ottenere bonus, o bersagliare il nemico di malus e incantesimi offensivi. La varietà non è molta, dopo 2 ore di gioco avrete già tutte le varianti delle carte speciali, ma saperle gestire e amministrare per bene (è possibile acquistarle a suon di argenti o trovarle nei forzieri durante gli scontri) è la chiave necessaria per finire l’avventura e battere i nemici più ostici.
