Card lovers are you ready to play something, unlike any other card game you’ve played before? Cardful Planning is a game that isn’t really about putting together a full house, straight flush, or even a 4 of a kind. Instead, this game is all about moving one single card from start to finish.

Just by rotating the card every which way, from going right, up, down, or even left you’ll be able to collect special cards and objects, that could aid in the moves you take or unlock and access new locations. It’s like an adventure game in the form of cards. The first portion of the game is basically the tutorial stages that teach the game completely. Afterward, you’re on your own and ready to be challenged by plenty of original and well-designed stages.

So if you are looking for a not-so-usual card game that provides many dangerous obstacles, the ability to use special abilities, and play a board-style adventure game, then you may want to give this one a chance. There are plenty of modes to challenge every type of player and each makes the game a bit more enticing!

Graphics and Sound 🃏

The game’s 8-bit design is sublime in accordance with the card game theme. It’s got this dark background with a white outline of each card and the board is designed exactly the same. It doesn’t cause one’s mind to feel perplexed with the gameplay. You can still make out the single card you’re moving on the game board and the rest of the objects as they appear in each stage.

Everything moves well on the screen, with no graphical errors. I love the only few colors used as the weapons, the symbols on the cards, and a few other things. Either way, with just a few colors and plenty of simple black and white, it’s still a great 8-bit designed game.

The music and little bit of sound effects are a perfect match with the puzzling and adventure genre of this game. Even when it plays through each of the different modes. The sounds and music doesn’t get annoying or irritating, even after playing so many stages at one time. It’s just perfect and not too pressuring to make you fail when trying to concentrate on the puzzle in front of you.

Final Thoughts 🃏

This game, Cardful Planning is exactly as it sounds a game that uses cards and requires plenty of planning. It’s got so many different modes that add a bit more challenge to the gameplay and it’s just fun! In a way, it just works for anyone who likes a more relaxed game or a bit more of a challenging and difficult puzzling game.

There are over 100 stages, to occupy oneself, which are difficult and require strategic planning so it won’t be done that easily. Plus, the three modes, will keep a player busy for a while as they add a bit of a twist to the ordinary game. Additionally, The entire game is like playing like a card entering into different doors that have new and original puzzles that are full of obstacles to conquer. Many of those include sharp points coming from the ground, the need to collect cards to access the next stage, or even unlocking areas with boxes positioned all over the board. Plus, it’s got lots many dangerous obstacles to avoid, like bows shooting arrows at you, sharp moving objects, flames trying to burn you, and so many other horrible things to stop you from succeeding so easily. Thankfully for restart, it helps to get everything back where it was after being killed since it all stays the same where you left it on the board.

Regardless, this just makes the game so much more enjoyable to play, and within either mode, Cardful Planning was and still iss a great game! I am very happy with how well it was designed and the graphics are exquisite. It honestly a mind-boggling, fun game and so hard to put it down.
