"Cheap and cheerful single-player card battler with a colourful aesthetic and a neat puzzle-board framework. Soundtracks not half bad either."

Fairly unique, great player progression, quirky characters, diverse strategy and gameplay that's simple to understand and still gives a challenge or two. I love this game. I love mustaches.

A somewhat underpriced casual card game. 3.99e normal price is quite low for a game this good. You get a lot of value for that money with this game.

Best played in short bursts when you got some extra time on hand or while doing something else on the side.

Does not take itself as seriously as the MtG games do and you can play this with your kids.

Difficulty is generally quite low until you start to against the legendary card holders for real. they will challenge you and force you to go gather better cards to be able to beat their strategy. Deck building is also a must but the default deck gets you quite far.

Reminiscent of older card-centric adventure games, Card City Nights carries you through a self-aware and contrived adventure to collect eight unique pieces from different bosses, and to challenge a final boss for a defined reward. The card game itself is fun and varied, and leaves many opportunities for customising one's own deck. While a direct and offensive tactic can be used to beat most opponents, each uses different strategies that can seriously complicate such an approach, making it optimal to research tactics and learn more about the individual card synergies.

There is no penalty for losing and always a reward for winning, so it's very much so a gentle game for those who may be unfamiliar with battling card games in general, making it playable and appealing for new or veteran players alike.

The music is enjoyable and adds flavour to the already living world, and the artwork is unforgettable and appealing, in that "trying hard to look like it isn't trying hard" way. The palette choices and composition are aesthetically pleasing and give the world a setting all its own, despite borrowing elements from many other games that the developers have made. The default gender for the player character and most npcs is female, with most characters being confident and punkish, breaking the common representation of female characters in video games as passive, mousey, and largely helpless.

I loved this game every moment that I played it, and though it can be frustrating to find an opponent who is difficult to beat, that just requires more familiarity and effort with your deck. It's seriously a steal at its price.

Great little game, reasonably short but has a surprisingly large amount of depth in the card play. Coming from a MTG background some of the mechanics are really interesting and you can customize your decks to do wacky and crazy things. Highly recommend.

This turned out to be a reeeeally fun game. It's a CCG set in a modern world small town with a cute story wrapped around it. You collect booster packs via duelling NPCs in the game, buy individual cards from the in-game store with gold coins that you get as you duel or explore, and form decks using one of a few varying strategies to finish the story and defeat all your opponents. I read other reviews that said defence decks were great, I used an offensive/disabler deck that worked well from start to end too. It's not grindy at all, you can easily play start to end without sitting around and grinding certain cards or something, though you can if you want to as well.

But there are a number of strategies you can employ to build your deck around, which is a neat concept, though there's little advantage in not maxing out the size of your deck, and the AI can be spotty in places, though it's not entirely horrible. The card combining system I found to be a little wonky too, although I didn't play with it fully.

Love the art, dig the character writing, and the music is fun and addictive and on both Spotify and Steam, apparently.

It took me about 8-10h of casual playing to finish the game, the rest of the time it was just sitting idle behind some other games, which is why the gameplay time is a little inflated.
