Donsol

This is the latest iOS game from Aliceffekt – although a collaboration this time, with John Eternal (the result of something they worked on during a recent train game jam) – and it’s fun as hell. It’s a dungeon crawler but played with regular playing cards that represent creatures/enemies, potions, and shields. There’s a simplicity to it that I love, and the more you play, the more you start understanding the best strategy to make it through a dungeon level (which means going through an entire deck of cards without dying). It’s also great to think that you could technically play it with a regular deck of cards, although I still don’t get how the damage on the shields work at all times. Perfect game to have you on your phone (it’s currently only on iPhone, not on iPad).
