This was pretty fun! The characters are awesome and the gameplay is smart, fast and simple enough. Deck building is interesting, but no deep strategy is actually needed, as the game is very easy, although it can be implemented,

I wasn't stuck in any battles for too long, the last battle has an incredibly big difficulty spike but even then I only had to try like 4 times.

It's a shame there's no multiplayer, a feel like that's a no-brainer.

Overall I'd say definetely worth a try, if it's on sale.

(But I got the impression there's a tablet version? If so, that one is probably better since touch controls would work perfectly.)

I found it fun from the beginning through the post-game. As you progress, you can start building up bigger combos which is really fun. My advice is to focus on damage cards. Burn through your opponent's health as fast as possible.

If you enjoy an easy-going yet skill-based game, or if you enjoy the elements of both puzzles and trading card battles, I highly recommend 'Card City Nights.'

In 'Card City Nights', you fast travel through an island city with a chill, evening atmosphere, talking to comical NPCs, and battling them in a TCG for booster packs. In the card game proper, each player has a 3x3 card grid, and seven Defense Points. The goal is either to fill up your opponent's grid with occupied space, or decrease their Defense Points to zero.

Cards have three main categories: ATTACK, which can disable opponent cards, or damage your opponent's Defense Points; DEFENSE, which can increase your own Defense Points; and REVIVE, which can bring your disabled cards back into play.

The challenge of the game is that cards must be played in combos. Each card has a specific set of arrows which tell you where on the grid it can be placed for maximum efficiency, and cards in a combo must point to each other in order to be played. While some cards have multiple arrows, others only have one (some trick cards have none). They can also have additional effects such as rotation, teleportation, or extra damage, making gameplay interesting, unpredictable, and especially fun.

The game works in an almost Rock-Paper-Scissors type of balance, where a specific strategy you use for your deck to counter that of your opponent's will expose you to another vulnerability. Having the freedom to make your own deck allows you to explore and create your own combos. Each NPC uses a consistent strategy, making training accessible, but not simple-minded, since the variability of play is kept intact by the limited number of cards you're allowed to use at once. This could actually be printed as a physical card game, and I would invest in it without hesitation.

Personally, this game meets all my standards for a perfect single player game: completely replayable, expansive but not overwhelming, customizable, encouraging of practice, and a smooth, approachable mood shown through the art style, music and NPCs (I once spent a quarter hour just reading the funny lines of the gossiper at the city mall).

An online multiplayer mode would send my love for this game over the top, like a rocket that shoots through the sky and explodes, scattering its awesome rocket parts over the world. Seriously, game designers, if you're reading this: give 'Card City Nights' an online multiplayer mode, or the aforementioned physical card game.

Well, this game was certainly a lot of fun. I for one love card games and in Card City Nights, I have to say, I was quite entertained and throughly enjoyed it. Initially, it was a bit uninspiring with the first few battles and trying to build my own deck. However, that quickly subsided as I progressed throughout the game and was presented with specific goals and opponents. The game itself is cheerful, and funny with a nice simple yet colorful design and aesthetic. The soundtrack is amazing as well, probably one of the best, if you like jazzy tunes. This is well worth the amount you'll pay for it (discount or not). Great casual card game to relax with.
