Wow, that is some praise! I loved it from the screenshots and the fact that it has CCG mechanics but haven't got round to trying it to see if the gameplay matches up. This has shot right up my to do list, cheers!

this is definitely a must try for all turn based rpg lovers out there. with the release of steven universe rpg last week, this game will find its own place for those who wants to taste the quality rpg turn based for free. im truly amazed by how the animation done in this game. oh and if you worried bout the freemium thing, please dont, im playing for an hour and have not found any paywall that stop me from playing. instead im still having enough gems for a new stuff and buy the energy system. grinding system is fair enough, imo.

Finally had a chance to play and I totally agree; it's really polished and great fun so far. It fits quite well in both RPG and CCG categories with enough to appeal to either. Admittedly, anything with collectible cards is always going to win me over but I'm not biased enough that I can't recognise when I'm playing a bad game and this is anything but.

It's really pretty for a card game, not that it's such an important detail with this kind of game but it's nice to see a level of detail and effort put in as it's reassuring that the rest of the game will be as professional. The strategy involved in choosing your cards shows promise too; with all the different effects they possess. I'm a little concerned by the size of the deck you start with but that might change as I play more, I just would have loved a larger deck to draw from. That could just be the Magic guy in me though!

I haven't put much time into this at all, so these aren't really impressions, just a little nudge to put this game on people's radars in case it soft-launched too stealthily. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this game. Thank you Redribbon for your impressions that made me get off my butt and play!

It's a good game with great mechanics, but the enemies need balancing. That, and only being able to carry 8 cards total at high levels, sucks.

Looks pretty cool, apart from the card-leveling. Would be interesting to say gameplay from a few hours in to see how the mechanics evolve.
