About this deal

There's some English voice acting mixed in alongside a forgettable soundtrack, announcing card names and offering encouragement during games, but we ended up turning the sound down and sticking on a podcast when settling into longer play sessions. Smaller tweaks such as the fatigue that afflicts monsters, the fact that you now discard at the end of your turn, and the introduction of new buildings also change things up, but another major addition are the slightly bizarre Evo cards. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. On a dice roll, the player moves to a square and if they have a monster, they can play it on that space.

There is a group of companions with you, though sadly my favorite of the bunch was removed due to plot convenience, leaving slightly more irritating serial opponents/compatriots in her wake. We have to admit though, it's usually pretty good advice, and there's plenty to wrap your head around. Expanding and upgrading your territory adds a steady income of magic, and of course you charge a toll for any player unlucky enough to land on your turf.Spaces I own can be upgraded using magic power, making the toll a costlier expense should an opponent land there. The graphics, while not the best I've seen on the 3DS, are perfectly adequate and do a fine job in submersing the player in the world of creatures and spells. Items to help attack and defend - as well as magic spells - are also vital, with powers ranging from something as simple as an extra dice roll, to some game-changing abilities that effect the entire board.

With a likable cast of characters, interesting story and a wide variety of cards to create unique decks, Culdcept Revolt has a good premise that doesn’t pay off quite as well as intended.Game-play is easy to pick up for beginners but also crafted in such a way that it can even **** in the most hardcore gamer to devote hour upon hour into this magical board/card/fantasy come to life. The storyline is easily skippable if you want to just get to the game, which was certainly true for me after a loss. Don't let these part-timers fool you, Culdcept Revolt should be purchased immediately by anyone with a 3DS and interest in CCG's/board games. It demands patience, and a lot of luck, but if you like the sound of a monster-fighting twist on Monopoly then you should take the hand you're dealt and check this one out.

In the case of games that use cloud streaming technology, only the free launcher application can be downloaded. The single-player campaign is broken up into chapters, each containing the main plotline missions with optional side stories to complete as well. New mechanics are introduced with enough restraint that it never feels overwhelming, and even with such a huge amount of information to dive into there's a limit on how much is heaped into your lap until you're more comfortable with the basics. The game does an effective job of making you dislike your rivals, so it's strange to receive helpful tidbits of information from them before charging into battle. This would have been excellent if it had released BEFORE I'd gotten into other digital card games and a slosher-load of other big-screen games!They aren't immediately unlocked upon completing maps like in previous titles, instead you earn money by playing matches, which can then be spent on randomised packs of cards each with a set theme, such as a specific elemental type for example. You can clearly see that they were able to make the game that they actually wanted to make, and it isn't just a cash grab. While we could go beyond this simplified abbreviation and detail just how each facet of gameplay works, or share our top secret strategies (fat chance), it would be a disservice to Revolt itself, which does a wonderful job of easing the player in slowly but surely. Beware though, people who are short on attention spans and intellectual fortitude may not have the time to fully see everything this game has to offer. There's a decent soundtrack that ramps up as the score does, hitting peak crescendo as a player pulls into the 90% of a winning score territory.

The story might be largely irrelevant, but the gameplay is absolutely excellent especially if you’re into other trading card games and/or board games and becomes even better in multiplayer. Culdcept Revolt ushers me into its medieval fantasy- Monopoly formula with a few short tutorial boards that teach me everything I need to know about this incredibly niche franchise. One of the most obvious changes is the way in which you earn cards, which ties into the gradual introduction of mechanics rather than being overwhelmed all at once. Gates also heal your battle-weary monsters and activate them again after they become fatigued through use.
