Reviews

“This game has more to offer than it first appears once you get a grasp on the basic mechanics you find yourself becoming more engaged and wanting to progress further making it a great card game.”
8/10 – GDN

“The lack of deck customization may scare off a few veteran players, but at the same time, it brings a new level of strategy to the game.”
90/100 – Game Vortex

“Spectromancer might not be the best-looking game on PC, and it might not have the best bells and whistles of games that came out in the last 10 years; the one thing that it does have is amazingly fun and deep gameplay.”
8/10 – MyGamer

About the Game

Open your mind and discover your power as you explore the world of Spectromancer! A turn-based online fantasy card game, co-designed by Magic: The Gathering's Richard Garfield and Alexey Stankevich, creator of Astral Tournament and Astral Masters, Spectromancer allows players to participate in a magical duel against other mages by strategically summoning creatures and casting spells.
Play as one of six powerful types of wizards and take on the corrupt council of magic and its innumerable minions. Each mage uses five magical elements during a duel - Fire, Water, Air, Earth and a fifth related to the specific mage type. Using one of six mage types in the game, Clerics, Mechanicians, Necromancers, Chaosmasters, Dominators and Illusionists, players duel against the computer or against other online players live. By adding new spells and new allies to your side, players will open new strategic options to master.
Spectromancer provides a varied pallet of foes and environments that force players to watch every turn of a card.

From the mind of Richard Garfield, creator of Magic the Gathering, and other similar gifted people.

This is NOT a ccg, there is no collectible aspect. The available cards are determined by class, and randomiser. Don't worry, there are not that many cards that the randomiser can screw you to any relevant degree.

The single player game is fun, but it is in multi that this game truly shines. Very enjoyable.

I wasn't observant enough to see that there was a crappy DRM that only allows you to activate the game on 5 computers. I don't think it will pose a problem for me personally, apart from having to deal with activation codes, but I hate the concept. It feels like I don't own this game fully, and if I cared enough it could affect the way I deal with upgrades of my computers.
But I will probably only activate this once and wont install it ever again, as it seems quite boring. I will also make sure not to buy anything from Apus Software or Three Donkeys LLC again.

Fun, but underwhelming. The cards don't gather quite enough synergy to be truly exciting, and the one campaign makes for repetitive gameplay. Still, for the short while it lasts, it is fun, and it's fun for a game or two with a friend.

It's worth $10, although, at the price they are, I can't recommend the DLC.

For the card game lover.

Not as good as Hearthstone, but a decent enough online card dueling game.

This was a random buy for me. Glad I got it. Its a battle card game a'la Magic the Gathering. Good enough for a couple of playthroughs, even if the story line made little sense to me. Fun game. 8/10
