Do you have what it takes to be a team of just two, trying to survive the menacing enemies through a strategic card-based attack game? Well, if the answer is yes, then you should try the game, RogueBook. It provides similar gameplay to that of Magic: The Gathering and even Faeria, where the adventure continues to change after each win. Leaving the player with plenty of difficult opponents to come up against and new heroic experiences to witness.
When you can discover new craftable gems and unique relics while using plenty of action-packed cards to bring down the rivals, you really won’t find yourself losing interest in this game that easily. The decisions on who makes up the two team members, where you want to go next, or how you want to attack with the deck of cards are all up to you. Leaving you with all the power to decide on how the game will play out and what the overall outcome will be, by your every move!
So there really is just plenty to enjoy, and as mentioned before, it never ends once you win the first time playing. It won’t let you down, as this game isn’t easy to beat! It’s difficult just at the start, so don’t worry about not feeling challenged, you will be! Everything about this game is requiring you to use your mind to plot and plan a better move each time your up to attack or where to go next on the gameboard; world map.
Graphics and Sound ⚔
The visual appearance is magnificent! It’s engaging with the dim but full of color background scenes that are illuminated on the screen as you play. Each attack and fight that occurred during the game, is action-packed and smooth with no difficulty making out each movement used with the card chosen. There are no signs of slowing down, blurred visuals or effects, struggles, or irregular movements when a card is chosen and the requested performance begins to play on the screen. It’s just perfect for each portion of the game, like that of the battle and board movement portion.
There was one problem that I came upon that is not something too drastic, but could be an issue when playing the game. Especially cause it’s the way of choosing from a selection of an item. There seems to be a very light blue color to indicate the choice being highlighted. The concern I have is that it’s too light to see what is being chosen. Players who have difficulty seeing or practically any player, like myself, may become a bit stumped for a few seconds because the color isn’t as obvious as everything else in the game. Thankfully, it doesn’t interfere with the gameplay.
Additionally, the music in the background is just what this heroic game needs! It plays at a perfect volume when turned up high and is completely well-fitted. The melody is powerful, but in no way irritating when listening for hours during gameplay. Honestly, it just works! Plus, with each action provoked during the game, the sound effects are very nicely initiated as well. Giving a true experience of the sound would be when something is being attacked, used with magic, being defeated, and many other actions performed. All in all, from the sounds to the graphics, this game will hook the player making it hard to pull one’s eyes away from the screen.
Final Thoughts ⚔
After playing a few games and playing some more, I find RogueBook to be astounding! It’s got so much that one can enjoy, from the action, planning, and even discoveries of unusual and unique relics, gems, original heroes or rivals, and the many different areas to travel to. On top of that, the game just never ends, each time the book is opened; the game is played. The cards are nearly never-ending as there are so many combinations and plenty to choose from.
I love when a game has a variety of things going on and continues to change each time it’s played. It is literally a game that continues to be different and full of new surprises. Especially, when the cards in one’s deck are never the same. Plus, the two heroes that the player is allowed to choose to create their own team makes it even more interesting to see what the outcome will end up being. Nevertheless, it’s still based on the planning of which cards to use and when it’s the right time to use them.
Lastly, I must say that RogueBook is one of those strategic action-packed games, with an adventurous journey and plenty of detailed graphics and entertaining scenes when moves are being made that I just love! Always working my brain and taking me away from reality into a world where I’m in charge, deciding my team’s fate. So I’m nothing but pleased with this game and love every single part!
