Under rating threshold (show) Hey, this is almost exactly like that minigame in Might and Magic 7 you played in the bars...the name eludes me. Awesome job though, since i'm pretty sure no one here's actually played M&M7.

Under rating threshold (show) Outstanding game, only two suggestions: 1: need a way to skip a turn (I've had to quit several times because I got bottlenecked on resources and ran out) 2: change up the random just a hair so you don't end up with 500 magic cards and no build cards other than that, outstanding, very fun and addicting!

Under rating threshold (show) The game is pretty luck based. Strategy can make a huge difference when you're playing against someone who doesn't really know what they're doing yet, but if both players have a little experience, it basically comes down to the cards you get. A long game often ends with both players accumulating resources faster than they can spend them, and the first player to draw a big card wins.

Under rating threshold (show) @SirMustapha: There is a huge difference between you not being able to figure out how to play smart, and the game not allowing you to. Granted, when you end up with 8 Conjure cards and huge stacks of resources, you can't do much either way, but that's just a minor tweak to the % chance to draw a Conjure card, or to alter them in some way to make them better to use, not an unfixable gamebreaker.

Under rating threshold (show) Well, I think Mustapha may have exaggerated a bit, but he did have some points. With very expensive cards and 3 different types of resources you are often limited to a very low selection of cards that are playable. That said, I do like the concept. I think the thing that would do the most for the game would be to have a user-creatable deck. Let us look at all the cards and create a deck that we like. Optionally, assign point values to each card and cap the decks off. To see a good example of this, Google up Monster Master. It's a Crazy Monkey game that somehow hasn't made it here yet (I was going to upload it but then read the rules about not uploading other people's content...oh well...).

Under rating threshold (show) It's really really random. You can see how there could be strategy--attack or defend, build up stocks or increase the amount of resource gain--but in practice you just play the only card in your hand that makes sense, and hope that next turn you draw a better one. Kinda disappointing.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree that it is too luck-based. I also agree with the idea of letting you discard multiple cards per turn. I also agree that if you're going to do a game like this, improved graphics might be a good thing.

Under rating threshold (show) Simply put, this game doesn't cut it. At all. There's little or no strategy involved whatsoever, as the game limits the choices you're able to make in a fantastically magical way, since the cards are selected based ONLY on chance (in theory, since you'll never know whether the computer is playing fairly). It's a very, very poorly conceived game, and the fun factor is microscopic. You're better off with Klondike, or throwing a coin in the air and trying to guess which side it will land on.

Under rating threshold (show) This game would be so much more fun if it relied more on strategy and less on luck of the draw. A solution would be to have a system to "buy" cards, or be able to discard as many cards as you want per turn. Just getting 1 card a turn makes the game based solely on luck. other than that good - except online play doesn't work anymore...

Under rating threshold (show) Discarding needs to allow more than one card. I lost a game at over 200 in all resources because I went two dozen turns with just about nothing but conjures.

Under rating threshold (show) For an Acromage clone, it does quite well, only 2 major flaws as far as I'm concerned. Graphics. For a game with no moving parts, it could have been done so much better. Even the first Acromage looked better, and that's so many years ago half the community here wouldn't remember it. Secondly - the "Curse" card is way too gamebreaking. No matter what resource price you put on it, a 6 growth change is simply too powerful. On my first test i ended up having maxed growth, enemy being on 1s or 2s, and breaking his castly while getting my own to 100 in the same turn, just for the heck of it. To those who find beginner difficult - luck only changes so much, this game actually has alot of strategy to it.

Under rating threshold (show) This is a good game but with a great premise, but it needs some work. The main issue I see is that it's a bit too random...strategy doesn't really help. I was continually frusterated how the CPU took every "add soldier/builder/magic" card leaving him with huge piles of resources and me with nothing...this happened often. Try rebalancing and making more diverse cards (i.e. give you 2 brick for 3 of his magic, etc).
