Description:
Weapons and magic are embodied in cards
that you can build into a deck and then use to
defeat monsters in this card battle RPG.

Test different combinations to learn how to master
the cards in your own unique way and save the world!


Story:

There was once a mysterious land where weapons,
magic and items were embodied in special cards. Ones who
studied the art of handling these all-powerful cards over long years
were called card-users, and the five kings of the land relied on them
to maintain peace and balance.

However, one day, reports of monsters attacking towns and
travelers suddenly spread throughout all the kingdoms.

At that time, a young boy began a journey in Firsta, a land known for its bold adventurers.
What secrets will he uncover in his quest to becoming a master card-user?

Graphics & Sound
-Classic, retro-style pixel art

-Colorful characters like guild clerks and card shop owners
create a unique world for the tale to unfold in.

-Exciting battle music! Play with the volume up!


System & Tutorial

1: Deck making

-Choose 20 cards to build a deck.
You can have multiple cards of the same type.

-Focus on aggressive attacks, support abilities or any other style.
Try to find your own winning combination.

-Your hit points (HP) differ depending on what deck you use.
It is important to maintain a balance between cards with
powerful techniques and ones that grant a lot of HP.

2: Battles

-A horde of deadly monsters awaits you.
Tailor your deck to the strengths and weaknesses of your foes!

-Buy new cards with reward money for clearing out monsters!
Equip yourself with new, powerful weapons as you fight your
way across the land.

-Different cards are available in different towns.
Can you collect every type of card in your explorations?

3: Adventuring tips

-The Guild will always offer new monster-hunting jobs
and tell you where monsters can be found.

-The adventurers that gather at the Guild have plenty of
good information. They may even tell unusual tales that
dont involve the usual monster talk.

Bought! Downloading now....

How cool... finally a new card RPG. This also seems to be an introductory price. better getting it fast.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Looks very cool but I'll wait to see if that 2.99 is the lowered price or not.

I also noticed the English is a little off in the trailor so hopefully they get a proper translation done at some point

This game is #1 in both the RPG and Card sections of the Japan app store.

This game is really, really cool! Highly polished presentation, very nice graphics (and cool drawing style with full-screen pics), the card trading and battles are fun, even the sound effents and music are nice. Only little drawback is the simplifies English language. Not spelling errors, more shortened sentences without filling words, but not disturbing at all. You always know what to do. You'll get into the game in seconds, it's totally simple to understand, the controls are precise and on the spot whereever you tap. It also seems that there is a huge ammount of content in this game, it goes from some places around a town with some towns in one region (lands) and five different lands overall.

You'll basically start out as a young adventurer with just a few magic cards and have to become a true card master by fighting monsters, getting more cards and a better and better deck. There is always enough to do and you can chose in which order you fulfill your quests. You'll get quests by persons or your Card Master Guild and after obtaining them, you'll venture out to batlle monsters in card fights. This quicky becomes strategic, because you'll always have to fit your deck to all the different monsters to be successful in battle against them. There are a lot of cards to aquire, and as the game progresses, you are able to use stronger cards until you have the cards which bestow you with great power. There are not only attack, but also supporting cards.
Cards have attack values and special abilities and may add points to your HP.

Conclusion of these first impressions?

IMHO, this game is a winner.

When you loved Sword & Poker or other games of that style, when you're a RPG freak or love collectible card games, try this game.

The game is sold for an introductory price at the moment.
Price is, from everything I saw 'til now, absolutely reasonable.
