Defeat 17 fighters one by one!
It is a deck-building card game. Our character is out of control, but we can choose which cards he will fight with.
How it works
Each fight is fully automatic.
Your cards and those of your opponent will face each other one by one at random.
The cards have colored circles and squares:
- Each circle inflicts 1 point of damage to the opponent.
- The squares are shields that prevents an opponent's damage of the same color.
The objective is to carefully choose your cards according to the opponent's cards.
About the jam
Time is out of control.
The initial idea was to have cards with different effects (poison, fire, healing, etc...) to add strategy and a "build" system. And to be able to choose a way to fight (aggressive, defensive...).
I also wanted to be able to choose a starting character that would have different characteristics (hit points, number of cards, etc...).
But for all this, I ran out of time.
This is my submission for the GMTK Jam 2020, theme "Out of control".
