About this deal

The single-player campaign is broken up into chapters, each containing the main plotline missions with optional side stories to complete as well. The storyline is easily skippable if you want to just get to the game, which was certainly true for me after a loss. The online mode itself will actually reward players with a daily bonus just by logging in, ranging from in-game currency to a random card.

I remember tuning in for the Culdcept Nintendo Direct what feels like an age ago, when we were sure it would never touch these shores. Culdcept Revolt ushers me into its medieval fantasy- Monopoly formula with a few short tutorial boards that teach me everything I need to know about this incredibly niche franchise. If anything, the game can move too slowly at times, especially as you wait on multiple AI characters to finish their turns.

I have five decks built, each I believe will give me the upper hand in certain circumstances like team battles. I remember a specific match where I own a necessary corner of the board – one all players have to pass through to reach a gate – controlling six of the eight spaces in the section. The game of Culdcept is a hybrid of light RPG, collectible card games and property control games like Monopoly. In the case of games that use cloud streaming technology, only the free launcher application can be downloaded.

Its been nearly ten years since we've seen the release of any Culdcept game here in the West, but for anyone who recently dusted off their 3DS to go Metroid hunting, that is about to change. Hopefully I’m wrong and Revolt rolls a 12 so that we keep getting more games with faster localizations. Each Cepter (player) has a “book” of 50 cards to work with, comprised of monsters in the four classic elements (wind, earth, fire, water) along with neutral monsters, items and spells. It's kind of a shame that the Switch's recent bucketload of fantastic games has squashed its chances of getting a 'novelty purchase' for anyone not a committed Culdcept or card game fan.With all the classic elements veterans love yet a gentle learning curve for newcomers, Culdcept Revolt is the best Culdcept yet!

With a likable cast of characters, interesting story and a wide variety of cards to create unique decks, Culdcept Revolt has a good premise that doesn’t pay off quite as well as intended. We enjoyed being able to zoom in on card art however, as some of the detail is lost on the small-screened handheld.It's wildly addictive, and boasts a robust single player component as well as both local and online multiplayer to satisfy any craving for its unique, genre-blending mechanics. Allen, the game's protagonist, is found unconscious and with amnesia on the streets of Celphas, a medieval-styled city, by Alicia, the leader of the Free Bats, a resistance group that opposes the city's ruler, Count Kraniss. UPDATE***I firmly believe someone is deliberately trying to tank the score for this game by leaving 1 or 2 point scores with no review. Well, I made my dollar vote anyway because I'm a fan, so it'll be there if I feel like squinting at these dinky cards before a Switch iteration is made. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Under his command cepters are being hunted down and eliminated, while the city gates remain closed, trapping every citizen inside. You can clearly see that they were able to make the game that they actually wanted to make, and it isn't just a cash grab.

I stumbled upon the game description for Culdcept Revolt by accident as I was browsing through "upcoming" 3DS releases. Beware though, people who are short on attention spans and intellectual fortitude may not have the time to fully see everything this game has to offer.
