[TESTING] <Exploits>, a hyper-paced Tactical CCG



<Closed Beta is Coming!>

Hi everyone!

After a long-long time, finally our game <Exploits> will begin Closed Beta testing on April 25th!

We are looking for iOS testflight and Android players to help us testing our basic mechanic, overall playthrough and game economy.

Test Info

Player data will be deleted after Closed Beta ended (which should be around end of May).

<Exploits> is mainly about PVP, so in this test, there might not be many players in the beginning, though we have prepared basic AI to battle with you. It might not be as fun as battling with players, but hopefully you can still find some fun in battle itself and deck building.

Our wish is to create a fun and play-to-win card game, to do so, your opinion is very valuable to us.

All cards/resources in game can be acuired by daily gameplay, so it's not pay-to-win. Paid players will only receive better cards and reach high rank earlier.

Since Testflight players cannot buy resources from our in-game store. If you are an iOS player and really wish to buy resources or to support us, we can do it manually for you.

During this test, any payment will be returned as in-game Diamond of DOUBLED Value when game is offically launched.
For example, if you have paid $5 for anything in this test, when our game is offically launched you will receive in-game Diamond that worths $10.

Our goal is definitely NOT about grabbing some money and running away, so please feel no pressure to pay. But it's very important to receive your opinion or advice about our game economy. If you have any word about it, like price is too high, or you don't like the way of receiving new cards in game, we are eager to hear about it. We need it to improve our system in the future versions!

If you are interested in helping us and joining the test, please leave a name you prefer and e-mail that you use as your Apple ID.

Thank you and eager to see you on April 25th!

What’s Exploits?

1.Hyper-paced, combo-driven Tactical Card Game.

4.Play to win. Battle to become stronger and earn your honor!




The Ironfist Maiden says hi!


Hi dear friends on Touch Arcade forum!

Our new game <Exploits> is going to be announced in near future, and we want you to have a first look!

Exploits is a Collectible Card Game in which you can battle real-time opponents on a tactical battleground, each match normally last 4-10 minutes.

As a CCG, our goal is for most players, whether hardcore or casual, to enjoy the strategic fun of this genre, but in a more relaxing way, so we made a few special changes to speed up the pace.




In Exploits, each battle starts at 10 Supplies instead of typically raising one point per turn, and each card has a more obvious link with some other cards through a mechanic, usually a keyword. For example, a unit with the keyword “Armed” will activate a special buff such as +3 ATK when you put an “Equipment” card on it, or a “Resonance” unit will be triggered and fire extra fireballs toward enemy targets when you use a “Spell” card.

As a result, players should focus more on finding out combos from their cards on hand, and inflict the most powerful attack possible in one turn. There are still long-term strategies, but searching for possible combos will be a basic experience in Exploits. We found this more casual and relaxing than some major CCG such as Hearthstone, Duelyst or Scroll, but not without its own fun and strategic depth.



The story of Exploits happens on a middle age fantasy continent, where young kingdoms wage war on each other for power and belief. As the leader of a newly found mercenary order, our players can fight freely for honor and gold.

Each deck is a small group of mercenaries led by a General. Your General is a Hero unit who will add 5 stacks of Skill cards into the deck, each stack contains 2 cards, so it’s 10 cards in total. These 10 Skill cards will decide your basic strategy of each deck. The main purpose of this design is for our players to feel the power and characteristic of their Hero, and enjoy the fun of delivering a strong, dramatic combo.




Exploits is currently under testing, we are working very hard to polish it and there are many things we wish to share with you.

So far there are 25 Heroes and near 200 different cards in game. During Closed Beta, there will be 16 heroes available.

Touch Arcade forum is a place we hold dear, we will keep in touch with you on the forum, try to answer all of your questions. Also, please join us on Facebook page, we need your help to touch more people!

I am wondering this too. Also, will there be an offline mode so when the game eventually shuts down it can still be played? (if it's already offline then cool beans!)

Hi! Thanks for asking.

There is already a Campaign sector in game. In this sector, we have a Story mode and a Challenge mode.
In Story mode, there are currently 4 chapters for our beginner heroes. Each chapter includes 8 battles. There will be more chapters for other heroes in the near future. Basically each hero will have their own story line.

In Challenge mode, we already have 5 stages for each hero, each stage is a one-turn challenge puzzle. There are 17 heroes in the first game, so 85 stages in total.

Hi! Sorry to say there is no offline line currently. I understand your concern but I hope we don't have to shut down in the near future lol.

We will consider the possibility of playing offline though... just in case =P.

If you have a game mode that we can play offline, we have a willingness to pay for it. If you can afford it, consider options for this. The game itself is nice and expected to be released. XD

We are considering the possibility of offline mode, and there may be a single player game with the same background in the near future. Hope you will like one or both of them! Thanks~ ^^
